Big Game Gear
This is what I run with in the backcountry. It'll change from time to time as I find & test new gear and refine. Most of this gear has been put through the ringer after years of abuse and misuse.
Sage & Braker
It's my company, so I'm allowed to think it's the best.
Sage & Braker is a company that makes high-quality gun cleaning products and accessories for hunters and gun enthusiasts. We make it simple and easy to maintain and protect the life of your gun and offer products that help you get the most out of hunting.
Pnuma's gear has been nothing short of impressive. A lower price point doesn't necessarily mean lesser quality. These guys prove it. Plus a lifetime warranty? Yea, sign me up.
I don't care what model your looking at, they're all good. Made in the USA and built to last through a cataclysm. There is a model and style for every need, so give them a ring and they'll help you pick out the best one. Better yet, if you're in Denver give their showroom a visit
Geigerrig Water Filtration System
I hate pumping water. Plain and simple. I'll go without water sometimes just to avoid it. So this year I spent the time and looked through all the water filters out there and Geigerrig really stood out. I gave them a shot and I've by hydrated ever since. Simply fill up the bladder and give the rubber bulb a few pumps to push the water through the inline filter and right to your mouth. Why can't everything be this simple.
Spot Satellite Phone
I used to hate any technology in the backcountry. Then I had a kid and everything changed. The wife is more than tolerant of my solo backcountry hunting adventures, but now likes to know that I'm still alive here and there. Small concession to make when I'm neanderthal-ing it back in no-man's land. Doubles up great to call in those favors for a meat extraction. Game on.
