    Seek Outside Guardian Sneak Peek

    We've been working on this tent for a while now. The Guardian is a big brother to the Silex, and is about as light as you can go for a two person hot tent. The Guardian has the higher opening door (similar to Silex) that allows you to enter by squatting down instead of going to your knees...

    Cheap Stuff that Works

    Not everything should cost an arm and a leg. Post any inexpensive stuff you’d recommend that just flat works. I’ll start with a Mora 711. ~4.5 oz with sheath, easy to sharpen (and resharpen in field), and the textured rubberized grip is fantastic. Easy to grip and your hand doesn’t tire after...

    YOUR success rate on elk.

    Archery elk success rates run 10-12%. Rifle success often runs 12-25% depending on area. I'm curious what some guys here run. I'd love to hear: - Years hunting - Elk taken - Archery, Rifle, ML? - Public land or private - OTC or draw? - Days per year spent hunting I suspect we'll see some...

    Waterproofing a Paradox Pack

    Hi guys, we've had a lot of questions on how to properly seam seal our packs. For best results, seam seal the outside seams. Seam sealing the inside does little good. I thin the sealer pretty hard with mineral spirits, then suck it up into a small syringe and use that to inject it into the...
