The editorial staff and contributors of RECOIL, OFFGRID and CONCEALMENT spend a lot of time traveling. We attend training, we visit compelling places, we wind up in interesting situations.

As you can see above, some of them are more improbable than others. Across the continental United States to Europe, Asia and far Araby, one of the best parts of the job are the people we meet and the places we go. Some are mundane, others less so, all of it suits the spirit of adventure — and occasionally of service.

Our next sojourn is rapidly approaching, though this one is a little different than others in that some of our lads and lasses will be reporting while others are actually providing the instruction. Should be interesting. Many of our valued industry partners are supporting the endeavor with equipment, moral support and in at least one case a bottle of good whiskey. What you'll soon see below are the pieces of kit they'll be using — high quality equipment, apparel and logistical support from some of the best companies in the business: US Elite Gear, Arc'teryx, Arc'teryx LEAF, Salomon, Uber Group, F3 Tactical, Surefire, Benchmade, MultiCam, Crye Precision, SOG Knives & Tools, Ares Gear, Kestrel, Coye Knives, Vertx Apparel, Triple Aught Design, In God We Must, Prometheus Design Werx, Archangel Design, Bone Tactical, Smith & Bradley Watches and many others. We'll start seeing them later today or over the weekend as they arrive. We'll update as we go, and over the coming months we'll provide candid feedback on how it all holds up.

You'll be able to read that here on, over on and in future print articles.

Hopefully we won't lose another advertiser, but you'd be surprised how arsehurt some people will get if their gear fails and you tell the truth about it…though with this list we doubt that'll be a problem.
