The Wilderness – Wilderness Hunting Vest

Thursday, June 27th, 2013

Wilderness Hunting Vest

The Wilderness came up with the Wilderness Hunting Vest as a lighter, more versatile alternative to their Wilderness Hunting Shirt. Made from 50/50 NyCo MultiCam fabric, the vest features dual 5″x7″ flat chest pockets and dual 6″x7″ bellowed hip pockets, all with Velcro-closure flaps. For an additional fee, the vest can further be customized with 6 and 7-slot Velcro shotshell holders, a rear game bag, and 3x size extenders, allowing the vest to be open while still secured for better ventilation or fitting over bulky winter clothing (custom options seen above).

Electric Amphibious Vehicle

Available from Frontgate, the Electric Amphibious Vehicle is an RC boat capable of land navigation with the push of a button. When in land mode, the EAV can carry up to four beverages via the wheel wells and features independent left and right wheel controls for 360° spins. It also comes with an on-board water cannon, should the need to douse unsuspecting victims arise. Electric Amphibious Vehicle is a little misleading, though; Electric Amphibious Drink Cart would be more accurate, if not as impressive, product name.

One of our readers alerted us to these fan-made ‘Borderlands 2’ belt buckles representing the various in-game weapons manufactures, as made by a friend of theirs. The quality is fantastic, and the creator hopes to possibly obtain licensing permission from Gearbox to make them an official product.

The inteliSCOPE is an app for Android and iOS smartphones that turns the device into a tactical optic. It features multiple self-orienting reticles, 5x digital zoom, drop compensation, recording and playback options, built-in compass, GPS positioning, shot timer, and local prevailing winds.

Additionally, the smartphone can be attached to a 1913 picatinny rail using the inteliSCOPE Tactical Adapter System. It’s made from high strength composite-reinforced polymer with a ruggedized tactile rubber finish. It detaches via a quick-release toggle, can be adjusted to portrait or landscape orientation, and allows for the user to shoot around corners with no head exposure. A Nerf rail adapter also allows the user to use the inteliSCOPE on any of the N-strike Nerf blasters.


Thanks to J. Smith for the tip!

The S.H.O.V.E.L. or Semi-Horned Oblong Versatile Eating Ladle, is not just an ordinary titanium spork. It’s also has a serrated knife, bottle cap opener, and six feet of red paracord wrapped around its body. Well, all this, and it also happens to be open-source. The product page includes the data sheet and CAD files so, given the proper tools, you can make your own S.H.O.V.E.L. and even make improvements to the design.
