A buying guide, written by you.

holiday-reader-picks-gear-patrol-full-lead

You know the gear we want. But one of our favorite parts of this time of year is asking you, our readers, what you want for the holidays. We polled our readers for their wish list items, and usual, you did not disappoint. It was nearly impossible to narrow this list down to ten picks, but here they are (and here’s to hoping you get what you asked for).

TOPS Mini Scandi Knife (Rockies Edition)

This razor sharp, Scandi ground neck knife from TOPS comes with a gorgeous tumble finish to its 3″ blade and an ambidextrous Kydex sheath (great if you’re a southpaw like me) making it the perfect companion in the shop or on the trail.

Mystery Ranch 3-Day Assault Pack

holiday-reader-picks-gear-patrol-mystery-ranch


My old pack is wearing out and it would be nice to have a pack that can be used for EDC, Backcountry overnight, Travel, and whatever else life throws at me. Coupled with a military SOF pedigree and legendary build quality it’s a perfect do it all pack. Multicam might be a bit too “tacticool” but foliage seems just right.
