Army Surplus Gear For Survival
This week I talk all about Army Surplus Gear For Survival. Why should you choose surplus over the newest gear you can find? There are many reasons. The first one to me is the toughness of the gear. Army surplus is some of the toughest stuff you can find.
It was made to be beat to hell and back. I have seen gear still in great shape from WWI and II. Not much made now could hope to accomplish that. Anything even close to matching army surplus gear in very expensive. I saw a review on a super tough hiking pants. They cost almost $300. No pair of trousers is worth that much to me.
Speaking of price Army Surplus gear can be cheap. Some of the gear will be a great bargain. Much less than their hiking/ camping counterparts. Sometimes though you will need to haggle with the shop owner to get that great price though.
Make sure when looking for A real surplus store to not be deceived by fake ones. A good army surplus store will not be a chain store. It will not have barcodes on things. It will be dark. They are always dark. They are messy. You will have to dig through bins of stuff. Hell most wont even have a price.
Sometimes the “Fake” ones will have a few good deals. Check both. But The best deals come from real ones.
