New products are launched by brands and manufacturers all the time, so there is always something new and interesting to look at and maybe add to our kit. This month, we thought we’d feature some items from a few categories we don’t often talk about. Optics are not near the top of everyone’s list of must-haves until you need to extend your visibility of the landscape. While you’re taking a look downrange, you might also want to let others know what’s going on. The radios in this group can keep you connected over some impressive distances. A good pair of socks and boots can make your day, even a bad one, much more bearable, and bug and thug repellents are always good additions to your load-out.
