Vanquest Markhor 45 Review

We were lucky enough to get our hands on one of the first Markor-45 packs.  This is a full size pack from Vanquest with a ton of options for customizing it to the users body type and pack needs.

Coming in at 6 pounds on the nose this pack isn’t as heavy as it would look thanks in part to using 500 D Cordura in lower wear areas and 1,000 D in areas that are more prone to wear.  It also has a removable high strength poly carbonate frame as well.

Olight H2R Nova ‘Versatile LED Illumination tool’.

We’ve been working with some various lights from Olight for awhile now and we’ve been impressed with both their construction and function.

The H2R Nova is a bit of a departure from what we would normally review here because it isn’t really an EDC (Every Day Carry) light and it isn’t a tactical light.  Olight bills it as a “versatile LED illumination tool’ and honestly, I think that describes it fairly accurately.

The H2R has turned out to be an excellent multipurpose utility light around the hacienda.  As those of you who follow 13C know, we live on working farm with acreage and we’ve got to just about every situation you could imagine for illumination needs.  Read more »
