YETI COOLERS
workingclasswoodsman


Published on Jun 11, 2016
I know I will get grief for this but when I find a product that works, I like to share my experience. The cooler in this video was a wedding gift from my best man and has held ice for 7 days without opening it. Nothing wrong with other brands but YETI ROCKS the cooler world! We have the YETI ROADIE and the YETI HOPPER and they are great.They also make some fine cups and thermos products. I recently bought a YETI RAMBLER and it is amazing. We also have the YETI LOW BALL cups as well as ALL the drink holders including 12 ounce can cooler. The t-shirts are very comfortable as well.

Big Agnes Insulated Air Core Ultra Sleeping Pad - Review
TheOutdoorGearReview


Published on Jun 16, 2016
Today Luke is reviewing the Big Agnes Insulated Air Core Ultra Sleeping Pad.
Link Big Agnes : https://www.bigagnes.com/Products/Det...
Numerous Sizes / Prices / Weights
Petite : 20x66 / $89 / 20oz
Regular : 20x72 / $99 / 21oz
Long : 20X78 / $109 / 23oz
Wide Regular : 25x72 / $129 / 25oz
Temp Rating : 15F
Only available in this orange color : This is a 3 – 4 season backpacking sleeping pad which off
· Light and compact three season pads
· Built-in advanced heat reflective technology
· Antimicrobial treatment inside the pad prevents microorganism growth
· Minimalist I-Beam construction reduces weight and provides consistent stability and comfort
· Larger outer chambers keep you comfortably cradled in the middle of the pad
· WRM HL™ - Ideal for sleeping pads, this durable, high-loft synthetic insulation provides exceptional warmth with minimal weight and bulk
· New double rip-stop improves tear strength and durability by 25%
· Aviation grade TPU lamination technology for ultimate durability
· High volume valve allows for efficient and easy inflation and super-fast deflation
· One way inflation valve with micro air pressure adjust button
· Quick deflation valve
· Repair kit included

Like the Air Core Ultra, the Insulated Air Core Ultra has been redesigned to offer unparalleled comfort at an incredible price. A smooth sleeping surface, larger outside tubes, high volume valve for faster inflation and quick deflation, durable rip-stop nylon top and bottom, insulated top and bottom,

Synthetic insulation and reflectivity take this sleeping pad down to 15F

There is a non-insulated version of this pad as well that is good down to 35F and it will save you around 2oz of weight if you are interested in that.

Pros :
Light weight.
Compact.
Warm.
Reflects heat.
Insulated.
THICK! 3 ¼ inches
The outer baffles are thicker than the inner baffles and this helps to keep you centered in the middle. I toss and turn and these outer baffles help me to stay on the pad.
One way valve is awesome. You blow in and no air escapes.
Easy to adjust the amount of air that you want.
Deflation valve really works well. Very quick to release air.

How to Access Wikipedia Offline using Kiwix (Knowledge Prep)
TheUrbanPrepper


Published on Jun 23, 2016
In this video, I will provide step by step instructions for setting up a full offline copy of Wikipedia (including images) to be used on your smartphone with the app Kiwix. This will allow you to access the full Wikipedia catalogue during a “Grid Down” situation, when the internet is no longer available for whatever reason. The most important preps are Knowledge and Skills. You can preserve much of human knowledge, which has been documented on Wikipedia, and have it stored on a tiny MicroSD card. This card can then be accessible from your smartphone, laptop, tablet or other computer system. Enjoy!

STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS:
1) Purchase large capacity MicroSD Card (preferably 128 GB): http://amzn.to/28QK39n
2) Insert MicroSD with adapter into computer
3) Right-click the MicroSD card, view Properties and ensure that it is formatted to a non-FAT32 partition (e.g., exFAT). Reformat the card if needed.
4) Go to Kiwix website: http://www.kiwix.org/wiki/Main_Page
5) Select the “Download Wikipedia” button. Download will take several hours.
6) After download has completed, extract the ZIP file to the MicroSD card.
7) Go to the Kiwix Google Play Store: https://play.google.com/store/apps/de...
8) Install the Kiwix app to your device.
9) Power down the mobile device.
10) Insert the MicroSD card into the SD tray of the mobile device.
11) Power up the mobile device. The device may take a few moments to configure the MicroSD for use.1
12) Open the Kiwix app
13) Configure Kiwix to use the Wikipedia ZIM file on the MicroSD by selecting the SD Card Icon and then selecting the correct storage path.
14) To verify Offline functionality, put your device into Airplane Mode (which disables Wi-Fi and data)
15) Once in Airplane Mode, do a Wikipedia Search using Kiwix for any topic.
16) Verify that Kiwix opens the page for the searched item even when the device is in Airplane Mode
17) Congratulations. You now have a complete copy of Wikipedia, with images, stored offline on your mobile device. With or without internet access, all of the knowledge and data available on Wikipedia is now accessible to you at any time.

WIKIPEDIA DONATIONS:
Make sure you contribute to the folks at Wikipedia who maintain this crucial website for all of us to enjoy and learn from.

Urban Altoids EDC Kit (Version 3.0) #AltoidsV3
TheUrbanPrepper


Published on Jul 2, 2016

Altoids tins are commonly used in the prepper/survival community as a miniature storage container for gear and supplies. Over the years, I have refined my kits to focus less on “survival” items and more towards common, everyday tasks (e.g., “EDC”). Survival kits are designed specifically for survival situations in treacherous areas of the world, void of civilization. I live in an urban region where a Starbucks is usually within a few miles of most locations I will be at. Thus, the contents of my Altoids kit is custom designed for my specific environment. Everyone’s gear should be custom tailored to their individual needs, trade and region.

This continuation of my ongoing Urban Altoids EDC Kits (version 3.0) incorporates a lot of the organization layout from the previous version, but with a few improvements in some of the individual gear. The specific items are included to compliment my current Everyday Carry (EDC), not just provide redundancy. There are no sharp items that could be considered as weapons, so it is fairly TSA Friendly. This design utilizes custom magnetic mounting of the individual items. This not only ensures that all items are positioned in their exact location, but it also allows the Altoids tin to be completely turned upside-down without any of the items falling out.

I hope you enjoy this version of my Urban Altoids EDC Kit!

NOTE: for the absolute best viewing results, watch video in high resolution 1080p.

This video is the second in a series that delves into the topic of Night Vision. It addresses the basic question that many folks who are not familiar with Night Optical/Observation Devices often have: is Night Vision right for me?

Make no mistake about it - night vision is expensive. That being said, it offers unparalleled tactical advantages. Is it worth the investment? In my experienced opinion, most definitely. Without question, in fact. But I'll let you watch and decide that for yourselves. Bottom line: this is a sizable purchase - and one should thus proceed carefully, armed with as much detailed information as possible. It is my sincere hope that this series helps the Prepper in that regard.

Many blessings --GM

Pocket Chainsaw Review - Lightweight Backpacking & Camping Saw
sintax77


Published on Jul 12, 2016
A review of the Pocket Chainsaw – a packable, lightweight backpacking or camping saw option. http://www.sintax77.com

As discussed in the video this is not a brand specific review, but rather an overview and discussion on pocket chainsaws in general.

There are many different manufacturers out there making camping and survival saws with this general design, so if this design meets your usage needs, it's probably best to just find the best value one available to you. As you can see, it's basically just a length of chainsaw blade with nylon handles attached at each end.Of course there are minor variables to keep in mind, such as specially designed blades, alternative handle shapes, and chain lengths.

The specific model seen in the video is a Chainmate 24-Inch Survival Pocket Chain Saw With Pouch (model CM-24SSP). It’s pretty much your standard pocket chainsaw in terms of quality and features, so I think it makes for an decent baseline for reviewing this type of saw.
