Review: TacPack May 2017

The May 2017 TacPack has landed. This box is one of my favorites to date thanks to some solid inclusions from Hexmag, Doc Spartan, and Live Fire Gear. Lets look inside!

Hopefully you are familiar with the concept of TacPack by now. If not, you can read the reviews of the previous TacPacks for some background on this subscription box.

Hexmag “Blaster Pack” – There is a whole lot of Hexmag in the May box. There is an AR-15 magazine and you can never have enough magazines. There is pack of pre-cut grip tape that can be stuck into the hexagons on the magazine. Finally, there is grip that is a collaboration between Hexmag and ERGO. It’s comfortable in the hand and comes with a free “Gapper” to fill in that annoying gap behind the standard AR-15 trigger guard. No one ever said, “I think I have enough AR-15 magazines.”

Do Spartan Triple Threat – The Triple Threat is a 3 pack of Doc Spartan’s Combat Ready Ointment packaged three different ways – in a small deodorant type container, a lip balm style tube, and a tin. The different types of containers make it easier to apply the ointment in different ways or carry them in different ways but the ointment inside is the same. I’ve been using this stuff from a previous TacPack and I like it a lot. It smells good, works kind of like a triple antibiotic ointment (teatree oil kills all kinds of nasty stuff), and is versatile enough to work as a moisturizer or to prevent chafing. This is probably a lifetime supply for me.

Live Fire Gear Fire Starting Kit – This is a great inclusion too. The kit contains 1 ferro rod and 1 Live Fire tin. The full size Live Fire tins like the one in this kit spark easily, even when wet, and burn for a long time. If you have any idea what you are doing, this kit represents at least one nearly fool proof fire when you need it. I’ve been pleased with every Live Fire Gear product I have tried and I have tested the smaller version of these tins. They work and this is the kind of thing that belongs in every Get Home Bag or vehicle emergency kit. You and your family can practice with this one and then use the included Live Fire Gear coupon to pick up more tins for your kit.

TacPack Safe Magnet – Normally the TacPack add on items are meant to be humorous. This month’s magnet isn’t meant to be humorous but it is meant to be a reminder to us all to “Honor the Brave”.

If you want to try TacPack, you can check them out at TacPack.com. TacPack says that the June box will be their highest dollar value to date.
