Rob Robideau reveals the new segment called, “Gimme Some Lumens” to the Personal Armament Network. The new podcast segment will talk about flashlights and a whole lot more.
Here’s Rob Robideau introducing a new segment to the Personal Armament Network. The segment dubbed, “More Sharp Edges Podcast” involves blades and all things sharp. You definitely need to watch out for it.
Michael Janich of Martial Blade Concepts comes on the show to discuss the process of selecting a knife for use as a defensive tool.
Thomas Carey of the thecgacompany.com comes on the show to discuss important features and what you should look for in a quality watch.
In this short interview, we discuss the ITS Tactical trauma kit. Bryan is also introducing a new, slimmed down version specifically for EDC:
It weighs 5 oz and can easily fit in a back pocket:
The EDC Trauma Kit contains (1) Combat Gauze LE, (1) SWAT-T Tourniquet / Pressure Bandage and (1) Pair of OD Nitrile Gloves. The kit is also vacuum sealed and completely latex-free. Another added benefit of the EDC Trauma Kit is that it’s able to be carried on a plane without any trouble from TSA.
