D-Rmor Gear C2 Armored Deep Concealment Holster

Denim deep carry holsters have been providing users with a comfortable and extremely low profile method for carrying a handgun for years. Because they have their own integral belt and are worn under your clothes, they work well in locations where you absolutely can not risk any part of a holster being visible and are even useful for wear under exercise clothes. This style of holster isn’t new but… D-Rmor Gear’s new C2 Armored Deep Concealment Holster isn’t your typical denim holster.

The C2 is constructed from FR Denim but it is what is under that denim that really sets this holster apart. D-Rmor Gear incorporates 4 layers of woven aramid that fully encapsulates the muzzle end of the handgun. That is enough material to stop most handgun rounds that can stuffed into a holster like this. If you have ever wanted to try this type of pelvic carry but have been a bit gun shy about carrying so close to the family jewels, this could be what you have been waiting for.

Additionally, the C2 can accept an optional soft armor insert behind the holster pockets (2A protection). If you don’t need the extra threat protection from the soft armor insert, D-Rmor Gear will offer a breathable sweat shield that fits the armor pocket and would protect your handgun should you intend to use the C2 during workouts.

The integral belt is custom made to your waist. It features two elastic sections for comfort. The design is fully ambidextrous with dual holster pouches that can also hold magazines, flashlights, and similar items.

Russian Roulette Clothing 5.7×28 Shirt

Russian Roulette Clothing’s latest shirt is an homage to the little PDW cartridge that could (or maybe couldn’t), the 5.7x28mm. The shirt features an image of the blue tip SS197SR cartridge along with the caliber designation.


5col Survival Supply Attachenator Kit

5col Survival Supply’s Attachenator Kit is now available. This clever kit comes with everything you need to attach all kinds of gear to a PALS grid, a backpack, your belt, and more.

The kit includes:

  • 4 ITW GTSP Cordlocs
  • 5 ft. 1/8″ diameter Shock Cord
  • 5 ft. MIL-C-5040h Type 3 Parachute Cord

This kit can be very convenient for the guy who doesn’t already have these components on hand. In order to piece together a kit like this, you would have to buy all the separate components in bulk which not everyone wants to do.

I have used these same components to do all kinds of things like:

  • Mount a TQ to a PALS grid
  • Attach trekking poles to a backpack
  • Attach water bottles to a backpack shoulder strap
  • Make a strap for managing a sling on a rifle
  • Make retaining straps or a grid for securing bulky outerwear to a pack
  • Make adjustable dummy cords for gear like a compass

Perseverance Survival Woobie Hoodie

I recently had the flu and I am not sure I would have made it through without a poncho liner, or woobie, that kept me warm while I wasted away on the couch. My wife and I even keep an after-market poncho liner with improved insulation near our bed in the winter to stave off the morning cold that comes with having a wood heated house. It is safe to say that woobies are integrated into my life and I suspect many of you are the same… but what if you could wear one all the time?

That is exactly what the Perseverance Survival Woobie Hoodie is all about. It is a hoodie, the world’s most versatile top, that is made from a woobie, the world’s most versatile blanket. You can wear it on its own or use it as an insulation layer under a shell in cold weather.

The Woobie Hoodie is available in three colors: Coyote, MARPAT, and good old Woodland Camo. I just ordered a Woodland Camo version for myself from Kit Fox Outfitters and I might do a review on it once I put it through its paces.

You can check out the Woobie Hoodie at PerseveranceSurvival.com.

Sneak Peek: 5col Survival Supply HPG Kit Bag Survival Kit

5col Survival Supply is developing a survival kit designed specifically to fit the Hill People Gear Kit Bag. The kit features quality components from Solkoa Survival Systems, Aquamira, UCO, and more. Given the versatile load carrying capability of the Kit Bag and it’s ability to stay with the wearer even when they have to drop their pack, I am surprised there hasn’t been other similar kits developed.

Stay tuned for additional details.

Review: Black Rhino Concealment Oscar Mike Wallet

I’ve spent the last 2 months with Black Rhino Concealment’s Oscar Mike Wallet in my back pocket… and I don’t plan on that changing after this review is completed.


The Oscar Mike Wallet (or On the Move Wallet) is an ultra-compact wallet created from rugged materials. The wallet is built around a webbing sleeve that can hold around 10 cards. The sleeve contains a simple webbing pull tab that allows you to lift the cards partially in order to sort through and find the one you need.

The front of the sleeve has a nylon card slot sewn to it that can be used to provide immediate access to your 2 most used cards. The back of the sleeve has an elastic strap used to hold folded cash.

Observations from Use

There are lots of wallets on the market. Some offer great access and organization. Some are extremely compact. The impressive thing about the Oscar Mike Wallet is that it offers great access and organization in a very compact wallet.

I have 9 cards in the sleeve and 2 in the nylon card slot and this wallet is still very compact. It pretty much disappears in the back pocket of a pair of jeans. Yet, in spite of how small this wallet is, I have immediate access to everything in it. I keep my ID and the only credit card I used in the front pocket where they can be accessed without even having to unfold a wallet.

The rest of my cards like insurance cards or reward program cards are kept in the sleeve where they would be real pain to access if it wasn’t for the “Quick-Draw Tab”. This is a simple strap that wraps under the cards so that when you pull it, it lifts the cards out of the sleeve. I usually just lift them about 1/3rd of the way out of the sleeve so that the elastic is still holding them tight but I can fan them slightly to find the card I need. It is a dead simple system that works perfectly and it might be the coolest thing about this wallet. I never would have thought you can stack that many cards into a deep elastic pouch and expect to be able to easily retrieve the one you want.

The one issue that I always have with these compact wallets is how they handle cash and coins. When ever someone hands you change, you have to deposit the loose change in your pocket, then fold the bills before putting them on your wallet. It takes longer than something like traditional bi- or tri-fold wallet but then again, you get to avoid the chiropractor visits that come with carrying an overloaded traditional wallet.

Wrap Up

This is probably the smallest wallet I have ever owned and that is a nice thing in and of itself. However, compact wallets can be more of a pain than a convenience if you can’t access what is inside of them easily. That is what sets this apart from other wallets I have tried. Sure, it’s small… but it also gives you easy access like a larger wallet.

I like it enough that it is still in my back pocket as I type this even though I really, really liked my previous wallet.
