Tactical Crutch

I stumbled across this on Tumblr and all I can say is…I want it!

Now if I could only have a pair of these with snowshoes grafted on to them, it would be perfect given the 8″ of snow on the ground here in western NC. I’m thinking the connection between the crutch and snowshoes would need some sort of articulated joint with hydraulic dampening.

Oh, the things you dream about when you are stuck in the house due to snow and a broken ankle and are starting to get cabin fever.

Tactical Is Cool But Damned Expensive

A company called Kitanica has these cool tactical shorts out. The model Xl.A is shown below.

The shorts also come in other colors such as olive, sage green, and black.

And how much do these cool Kitanica Xl.A pants cost? How about $107!!   

By contrast, a nice pair of either Columbia or Carhartt cargo shorts costs about $25 at Cabelas. If you really want to be fancy you can get the UnderArmour Safari Cargo shorts for $55.

Jeez, for that price they must think you are some sort of government contracting officer to be able to spend that much.
