About Me

Hi! I’m Ivan. Thanks for stopping by.

I grew up spending a lot of time outdoors.  Lots of backpacking and camping trips as well as extensive international travel…  Eventually I landed in the Marine Corps in the late 90’s, spending my time in the infantry.  After a hiatus from the military to race the Baja 1000 a couple times, I got myself another DD-214 with more time spent in the Air Force.  Departing that I wound up with large metropolitan Police Department for a spell, and eventually landed in the Security Contracting world.

The one constant through all of these experiences was gear.  From plate carriers, to holsters, to tac-lights to hard shells…  Having spent time in a lot of environments and with the opportunity to field a lot of equipment, I have grown fond of well made gear.

So I figured I would share some of the knowledge and experience.  So here we are…

Thanks for visiting!
