I’ve been on the hunt at local thrift shops for a bargain.  After scouring the Eugene/Springfield, Oregon area I hauled in fresh gear, and saved a wad of money buying items second hand.  However, most of the swag mentioned in this HD video production is new.  I’ve been popping tags.  I hope to use these pieces backpacking, vandwelling, and as essential Every Day Carry items.  

Nike SFB Tan Boots

I found a new pair of Nike Special Field Boots or SFB at St. Vinnie’s.  They retail online for $140 or more, if you can locate your size.  I had hoped they were size 12’s when I spotted them on display.  It was my lucky day, because they were a match for me.  The desert tan kicks had been marked $29.99, but were half off that day.  I got the shoes for $14.99!  I’ve been wanting this exact pair of 8 inch high military style boots.  Here’s the male equivalent of girls wearing Uggs in public.  I get lots of compliments on them.  No I haven’t served, but I train with soldiers.  

Mechanix MPACT gloves

I lost one of my all black Mechanix M-PACT Covert gloves bouncing around town celebrating New Years.  So, now I’m breaking in another pair of work gloves that I had for backup.  I like wearing them while biking, or even driving my Volkswagen Vanagon.  This brightly colored safety wear is men’s size Large.  Newer versions fit even better.  I also like that they dry out quickly in the sun.

Here’s my other videos on thrift store shopping.  I’ve found some treasures, and I look forward to going back into the city to discover what else I can’t live without.  Thanks for supporting the blog.  Visit again shortly.  I have lots of wacky videos in the works.  Have a great Spring Break, and Summer!

Survival Bros smashes the screen of a cellphone with a new COAST Products F611 Tactical Field blade.  It was total destruction!  The carbide tip can also muscle through regular glass, Plexiglas, and plastic.  It’s a sturdy knife, and I usually have it handy at the bottom of my backpack, just in case.  The F611 is a solid tool for camping, because it can help you process wood for a fire, or even when creating an emergency shelter.  You’ll like working with it, and it’s guaranteed by COAST.

Thanks for watching!  In addition, the blade steel is 154CM with a titanium nitride coating. Super durable. Don’t get the F.A.S.T. version of this knife.  It felt slow to deploy, and cheap. Boker makes fixed blade Applegate designed knives too.  Subscribe to Survival Bros on Youtube for more.  We’ll have other knife reviews soon.  Here’s the Gerber LMF 2 stress test I did breaking car windows.  Enjoy.
