    I can attest that the shelter half can be good down below zero. Used it on our FTX's in basic and the final week-long FTX was in early December with temps dropping to freezing. Woke up one night for night security and we had ice on the tent. With the modular sleep system i was plenty warm. Crappy issue mat outer green bag on top then black bag over all that. Inside the black bag i was in summer PT gear and plenty warm.
    The issued gear may be rediculously heavy but when it needs to last in wartime and survive, the weight is livable.

    Is it really a good idea to have a device that both "scrapes ice" and "breaks glass?"

    "Scrape Ice"..... I think those will definitely come in handy when "winter" comes.... LOL

    Luke why do a larg portion of backpackers use smart water bottles over a hydro pack when the badders weigh half as much

  • ferdonandebull

    They are not ice scrappers.. they are self defense things designed as a ice scrapper..
    Same with the car escape thing...

    4:36 wow what an ungrateful little MFR on the Folgers coffee,
    ive enjoyed Folgers French Roast and Maxwell House French Roast all my coffee drinking life and never had any problems or complaints,
    Folgers French Roast is what is used in most restaurants, and it doesn't break the bank, one $7 lasts me about two months,
    im glad to say ive never wasted my hard earned money on any Starbucks and would never dink of putting that stuff into my body either,
    i think ive came to the realization that your "gear review" videos aren't all that interesting anymore, come to think of it the only reason i continued watch them is because i thought you and your wife together, you guys reminded me of a couple of Garden Gnomes trolling the woods, but the novelty has ended, i am discontinuing my subscription to this channel, ...cups high!!!

    Enjoy the review ice scrapers are definitely different. But you definitely got something I like and that's that old army tent. During the sixties in the seventies that's all we camped out in well for that matter part of the 80s. then look like a bottom came to it, but we never had one with ours either. a friend of mine's father that was in World War II and the D-Day invasion. Showed us a trick of what to do about that. You should camp out in that one do overnight. And if you don't want it look me up

  • Reason to Live Adventures

    I will definitely be looking into buying a few of those ices scrapers as stocking stuffers. Ninety percent of my gear is now purchased after watching one of your reviews. I also stopped an order after your review of the Snugpack tarps. Always great to see your videos.

  • Grim Adventures of Bushcraft and Hiking

    Those scrapers are awesome man now I want one. What, we've got nothing falling here yet but man I'm looking forward to some cooler weather so I can take my new canoe out and have some fun without filling it up with sweat. Oh I like the tent buddy, sounds like a great guy.

    There's a reason most ice scrapers have handles. If your hand is that close, you'll get the frost/ice/snow all over your hands. Pretty chilly. Gloves won't fit in them either.

    I really like that last zippered pick 'Fieldline pro" I think you said? That would make a great belly pouch on my backpack waist belt. Can you drop a link to where I can find that? How much does it weigh?

    Yup was an amazing summer here in Montreal since June 21st we had sun 90% of the time, maybe once a week it rains and that's how I like it. Was kinda cool yesterday, but gonna heat up starting today again, 1 more month and fall will be here, time flies by. Cool tools, that ice scrapper would come in handy.

    Would Luke ever sell his truck Moose? It's an emotional attachment. But, for enough of the correct smelling coffee, he may open negotiations lol

    • TheOutdoorGearReview

      Good ole Moose is gone, now there is Beast.....
      Still not completely sold on that name.

    Choate has been at it for ages- long before there was a YT; always top-grade gear from them. This "Ice Scraper" (and "Kitty Cat" keyrings, "Letter Openers", etc) will not be legal in some places so know the local laws before you carry them on your person. Those are the best tent stakes I've ever found: more compact stored than the plastic ones and they hold far better than the thin round ones when rain loosens the soil. When you really need your shelter most is not the time to discover it's failing!

    Speaking of eating coffee...I enjoy chewing a bit of fresh coffee grounds as a 'pick me up",( I too love my coffee "nasty" strong... I carry a vial of instant with me most of the time to add to other peoples coffee when it is too weak...(almost always is)... No cream... no sugar...just strong and bitter...When making a standard cup of instant, it is 3 HEAPING teaspoons of powder for a cup...Believe me, I get a LOT of comments in public. BTW....Would have loved to hear you complete that last thought about "there are so many people who..." How about "there are so many people who...Have YT "survival" channels...that I would not be caught dead with in a survival situation.... Thanx for the vid and look 4ward to your next wilderness outing. Still trying to catch up with your past ones.

    • P RO

      Your "There are so many people..." is SO very right, but unfortunately the average YT viewer is so unknowledgable that they don't realize this. It's a good thing (or is it?) that they'll probably never have to discover their heroes are zeros when the chips are really down. Makes you appreciate the few good ones like Luke a whole lot more.

      They are also marketed as a self defense tools but in all honesty, I rather have something else in my hands!

    Been using that same bag for a few yrs, had some tearing and zipper issues, however the warranty has always covered it. They charge 10 bucks for a flat shipping but they send a new 50 dollar bag to replace the damaged one so no complaints really. Got the first one issued in basic training.
