Massdrop is a crowd-based sales platform where users vote on commercial items to be featured on the site, based on a category such as ‘Espresso machine’ or ‘Tactical backpack’. Once voting narrows down to just one item, Massdrop contacts the manufacturer and looks to set up a ‘Massdrop’, which aims to offer bulk pricing to the masses while only requiring they buy one each. As true of a traditional bulk pricing model, the more items sold, the lower the price for all.

Tiny Inconspicuous Handcuff Key Now Available

Monday, January 6th, 2014

tihk_sequence_watermark_580x387_large

Last August, we wrote about a product called the Tiny Inconspicuous Handcuff Key. Originally, it was featured on Indiegogo as a crowdfunding project. Now, it’s fully available as a commercial product from an official website. Click the image above to see a .gif of the TIHK in action.

The TIHK, or Tiny Inconspicuous Handcuff Key, is exactly what the name implies, a small handcuff key designed to be hidden on one’s person. The TIHK features an attachment clip, minimal form factor, and a non-reflective matte coating to insure it remains undetected when detained. The key is designed to fit all standard “peerless” single and double-lock handcuffs.

Gerber Gear Round Up – Bear Grylls Compact Multi-Tool

Sunday, October 20th, 2013

Gerber gear offers a selection of knives, flashlights, belts, and other survival tools for the outdoorsman. We purchased a small variety of Gerber survival tools, and put them to the test with our own weekend warriors, our three Boy Scouts. The rules were simple. They could select any of the products that wanted but had to write about their impressions.

Each week, we’ll feature a new Gerber product review written by one of the Scouts.

Multi Tool

The Bear Grylls compact multi-tool features ten components:

  • Wire Cutters
  • Serrated Knife
  • Fine Edge Knife
  • Small flat driver
  • Lanyard ring
  • Tweezers
  • Needle Nose Pliers
  • Phillips screwdriver
  • Medium flat driver
  • Bottle opener
  • It’s lightweight and compact, perfect for fitting on a keychain or in a pocket. External components and nail nicks allow for easy access to tools.

    I like the variety of tools present on this multi-tool. The nail nicks make them easier to get out. Having a lanyard ring on the tool is good because it can be kept on a keyring or secured to other gear. I also like the small size, but at the same time that makes it a bit harder to find if you misplace it.

    Featured on opposite ends of the image are the Schnelle pocket tools. Made from 304 Stainless Steel and Titanium-6Al-4V, the pocket tools feature tools including: socket driver, screw drivers, hex wrenches, bottle opener, pry bar, rough file, nail notch, and box opener.

    Gerber Gear Round Up – Bear Grylls Intense Torch Flashlight

    Sunday, September 1st, 2013

    Gerber gear offers a selection of knives, flashlights, belts, and other survival tools for the outdoorsman. We purchased a small variety of Gerber survival tools, and put them to the test with our own weekend warriors, our three Boy Scouts. The rules were simple. They could select any of the products that wanted but had to write about their impressions.

    Each week, we’ll feature a new Gerber product review written by one of the Scouts.

    Intense Torch Flashlight

    The Bear Grylls Intense Torch Flashlight has a durable anodized aluminum body with rubber overmold for comfort and easy grip in any condition. The tri-sided design wont’ let it roll on flat surfaces. It’s waterproof up to 1 meter for a period of 30 minutes. The weight of the flashlight with batteries installed is 5 oz. Shines up to 89 meters. The output and run time is as follows:

    High – 140 lumens/1hr 30min
    Medium – 35 lumens/8hr 35min
    Low – 15 lumens/17hr

    It also has a built-in SOS message beam that flashes SOS code at 140 lumens.

    I like the Intense Torch flashlight because it’s great for my camping trips as well as around the house. The bright orange makes it easier to find and the run time is great. I do not like the low setting, however because I found the beam too weak when I used it at that setting. Everything else is awesome overall.

    Gerber Gear Round Up – Bear Grylls Survival Belt

    Sunday, August 25th, 2013

    Gerber gear offers a selection of knives, flashlights, belts, and other survival tools for the outdoorsman. We purchased a small variety of Gerber survival tools, and put them to the test with our own weekend warriors, our three Boy Scouts. The rules were simple. They could select any of the products that wanted but had to write about their impressions.

    Each week, we’ll feature a new Gerber product review written by one of the Scouts.

    IMG_1512

    The Bear Grylls Survival Belt has a secret compartment on the belt buckle that you twist counter-clockwise revealing the following tools:

    -Snare Wire
    -Fishing Line
    -Fishing Hook
    -Snap Swivels
    -Weights
    -Signaling Mirror

    The back of the belt buckle reveals a mini screwdriver with flathead and Philips tips. Also on the interior of the belt is a zippered compartment.

    I like almost everything about this belt. I love the fishing line, fishing hook, snare wire, snap swivels, weights, and how the signaling mirror is located on the back of the cap. Also, it’s easy to tighten and loosen. What I dislike about it is the mini screwdriver is really hard to get out and the zipper pocket being on the inside instead of the outside. Overall, the belt is worth having in survival scenarios.

While concealable handcuff keys/unlock tools are nothing new, unlike other examples, this particular product is currently up for crowdfunding to fund the manufacturing process.
