    No, I just stumbled on it looking for an alternative to a Tilley.

    They are a small American company with customer service that will remind you of your favorite bag vendor. As a bonus, they will contribute a portion of your purchase to your favorite shelter or rescue. And of course if you don't have a favorite, Save Our Setters would gladly accept your donation.

    The treats are not organic just "all natural", which anybody can use in their labels as this statement is not regulated.
    They use human grade ingredient but battery chicken and feedlot beef are human grade meat.

    Just wanted to clarify the ingredient but they are a very nice company that does a world of good.

    Holds the camera very well. Plus there is another lockdown.
    You get two mag mounts. One is for DSLR and the other is for a lighter camera or device.

    I used the lighter one for my Canon S1 super zoom. The heavier one almost ripped the camera apart trying to disconnect it.

    As a side note, the panning part of the WindowMount is not availble on their web site, you have to call.

    All in One Monopod,Tripod, hiking staff

    Trek-Tech

    I had the original TrekPod II. Gave it to my son-in-law when I got the Trek Pod go which breaks down into a size for a carryon.

    The TrekPod II has a carry bag($29) that I used to carry on the plane. Fit in the overheads fine.

    I just bought the panning part of the WindowMount Plus for my TrekPod. Allows for better horizontal and vertical panning. Not as precise as a professional tripod, but great for hiking, etc where you don't have to carry a heavy tripod. Plus, you also have a hiking stick.

    Expensive, but well engineered, like TB bags.

    DeWalt DW2190 Medium Tough Storage Case

    Reference picture.

    I got mine at Home Depot for $4.99.

    Great for my bits and other drill accesories. Everything stays locked down.

    I bought another one just to keep assorted screws, etc

    I’ve noticed several people listing lip balm or chapstick in their packing lists. Gear Pipeline offers clip-on chapstick holders -- just right for clipping to an O-ring, & they keep it easily accessible instead of stuck in the bottom of a pocket or a pouch:

    https://www.gearpipeline.com/c-30-su...-products.aspx

    The clips come with their Beyond Coastal lip balm, but I prefer Blistex Herbal Answer. The clear plastic holder is nice & sturdy. The neoprene holder is not as well-made.

    Unusual, but perfect (for me) pocket organizer/wallet: http://www.billscustomcases.com/accessories.html

    The quality is excellent and a lot of thought went into the design. Plus, Bill is a great guy to work with.

    Travel related: Singapore Airlines. Great service at reasonable prices. On some Asia routes, they sometimes offer the lowest air fare.
