Leatherman Raptor Medic Multi-Tool

Leatherman Raptor sheath Leather man raptor J-knife detail leatherman-raptor-xl















Medic scissors with a few extra goodies to make a pretty rad all in one EMT tool.  Along with a good set of shears is the j-knife for cutting seatbelts quickly, a ruler, a glass breaker, and a integrated oxygen bottle wrench.  Koldsmoke likes the way the tool can be broken down to be more compact when they aren’t needed for quick draw use as scissors.  Available May of this year, Koldsmoke team member Mikael will be sporting this Leatherman Raptor Medic Multi-Tool as soon as it’s available.  Congrats on passing your EMT fit test Mike!

Agilite IPC Injured Personnel Carrier

agilite ipc














Kind of hard to explain, thank goodness for videos!  Basically a ready made sling system that you can drape around the injured person and then carry said person on your back leaving hands free, to climb ladders or shoot your way to safety or medical aid.  I see this as a potential Crossfit WOD; choose your partner wisely.  Agilite’s website is down so check it out later, until then, here’s the video.

Mobil Medic Trauma Gear-tactical series Trauma Molle Backpack

The problem with finding a good tactical style medic bag, is if you want it to come stocked, the price goes through the roof.  The Mobil Medic Molle backpack comes stocked, albeit with a basic first aid compliment, for under 200 dollars.  With that price point you can add, or replace or upgrade the guts of the bag as needed. Molle attachments enable pouches to be attached on the outside of the pack to suit the requirements of the worksite, or for personal gear you don’t want mixed in with the important interior supplies.  Koldsmoke looks forward to Tims review of the Mobil Medic Pack.  Click the link for more cool medic gear and the list of equipment the pack comes with.  Nice spot Tim!

I can’t even describe how weird and strange this looks.  I can think of a number of times a gas powered pup dog would have been useful.  Squirrel!

GoPro HD Hero2 Helmet Cam






The juggernaut that is GoPro just dropped a massive product explosion on the market with it’s Hero2 cam. 11 Megapixels from 5.  2 times clearer lense.  More intuitive lcd screen are the biggest improvements.   FYI, if you wanna film underwater, you have to buy an aftermarket non OE flat lense housing or the image is essentially poor quality, or exactly like what you see if you swim without a dive mask – dissapointing footage of blurry sea turtles and dolphins on a recent trip to Hawaii’s big Island with the stock housing.  The new wifi bacpack allows remote operation through a wifi network and a mobile device or laptop, as well as live streaming to the web or harddrive.  You can do this with up to 50 cameras.  Other features include an easier to understand LCD screen and more led lights indicating on off, more choices with field of view and frames per second, and for time lapse 1/.5 sec shots as well as the choices from the previous model.  GoPro HD Hero2 Helmet Cam.
