remember those times where you have to pick up those measly twigs for your campfire nights? you probably need a load of those to make a decent fire that’s probably going to burn out before you could finish belting out ‘Rocka My Soul’. if only you could break down those fallen trees that you saw while scouring for the pathetic twigs or perhaps, fell a couple of little trees. for obvious reason, nobody bring a chainsaw to camping trips, until now. in comes the Pocket Chainsaw – a 28-inch (71-cm) hand chainsaw crafted from high-strength, heat-treated steel – that let’s you cut through a 3-inch thick limb in a matter of seconds.

if you think the name KAMMOK sounds suspiciously like a hammock, then you are right. the KAMMOK is the latest in hammock innovation, utilizing light but strong and yet breathable diamond rip-stop nylon fabric called LunarWave. it surprises me that there’s even any further innovation further for a hammock but apparently, there is. the LunarWave is said to be “softer than a baby’s backside” (figuratively speaking and we are not pedophile or anything of sort) and it conforms to the shape of your body with a ‘no-tip’ design. i.e. you won’t risk falling over while you are deep in your dreamland. its thin form allows it to be stored away in its water resistant compression sack easily and the compressed size is slightly bigger than a softball and is light enough (20-oz or 567-grams) for you to bring it anywhere or anytime.

if not for the nature of light and the law of nature of day and night, we wouldn’t need a flashlight or any light for that matter. since we can’t change the nature, we embrace it by making simple things like flashlight a joy to use. sure, i was stumped by the Invictus price but then again, i probably don’t need such a high-end flashlight since i am not in an SWAT team. hence, the SureFire 6PX Tactical and Pro flashlights might be a good alternative. with a price tag starting from $95, it is still not cheap but is certainly way cheaper than the professional-grade Invictus.
