Armageddon Gear Kit Bags Plus

Don’t disrespect the duffel!

Duffel bags never get their due. People fret and fawn over the latest backpack but no one gives a second thought to the trusty duffel bag that has been doing yeoman’s work carrying their crap for years. When you have a winter kit that you keep in your vehicle, you’re not going to use a backpack for that. Time to head to the gym? No one uses a backpack as a gym bag (okay, maybe some of you weirdos do but you’re wrong). Does your backpack work as a range bag? Nope. Would you keep duck decoys in a backpack? Please. There are just some things that duffel bags do better and when it comes to actually hauling gear, they are hard to beat.

The Kit Bags Plus from Armegeddon Gear are what duffel bags should be. Some makers complicate them with lots of pockets or organization features but that isn’t what a duffel bag needs. A good duffel needs one thing – a large, uncluttered main compartment with a wide opening so that the entire compartment can be easily accessed. Any other small compartments are bonus and should be kept out of the way. That is exactly how the Kit Bag Plus is designed.

These bags feature a large main compartment with top zip access. Each end has a small Velcro secured stash pocket and both sides feature full-length zippered stash pockets. Armageddon Gear attaches the webbing handles with large box stitches and reinforces the bottom with thin closed cell foam. The bags come with an adjustable shoulder strap and are available in three sizes:

  • Small: 17″l x 9″w x 8″h
  • Medium: 23″l x 11″w x 10″h
  • Large: 32″l x 13″w x 13″ h

Check out the Kit Bags Plus at Armageddon Gear. There are only about a million uses for them. I’m sure you can figure out a way to use one.

CRKT and Artificum Solis Collaboration Knife – Clever Girl

The Clever Girl with its sweeping, Persian style blade is one of Artificum Solis‘ most recognizable knives. While the Clever Girl is already pretty affordable for a custom fixed blade, it is about to become even easier on your wallet with the announcement that CRKT will be offering a production version.

The production Clever Girl is ground from .158″ thick SK5 steel and matches the custom’s dimension closely with its 4.6″ blade. It also features sculpted G-10 handle scales and a functional molded nylon sheath.
