First Lite Kanab Pants

100% Merino wool. This is huge for me on three fronts; first, they are as quiet as a pant can be, second, they are warm in cold temps and not suffocating in warm temps because if the thickness used. Lastly, because they are Merino, I can go for WEEKS without washing whether I’m on a long hunting expedition or a multi-week course that I teach, I only need one pair of pants.

Some other points-

Two sections of elastic in the waist to help with fit when layering

Removable suspenders and well placed belt loops

Two well placed cargo pockets on thigh without Velcro. There’s no Velcro anywhere.

Wide cuff with bungee drawstring and button for wearing the pants up Capri style. I found this useful when crossing a creek that was deeper than my boots were high.

I can’t say enough about the Kanabs. Without a doubt my fav work and outdoor pant right now. Check back for some other gear I’ll be highlighting from First Lite - all stuff I use regularly, check them out here-

The two scopes that I have developed with U.S. Optics are now available. Over the past year a lot of people have seen the early prototype SR-4C that I have shot at all my carbine & rifle classes. While perfecting this new scope I also discovered Bobro mounts to attach to my BCM rifles.

For 20 years I have shot scoped weapons with a lot of that time being a military reconnaissance operator and I believe without a doubt this is the best set up for the modern day reconnaissance operator, military designated marksman, law-enforcement sniper and additionally the soldier, assaulter and Marine, as it provides the ability to use one’s weapon throughout its capability spectrum in every environment and situation.

The guys at U.S. Optics basically asked me what I would like to have in an optic and they did it. Additionally, because of the experience of the US Optics personnel this is an ongoing project with continuing updates, changes for the better when needed, more reticle options, and advancements in material. This will all continue. Here’s the breakdown of the SR-4C & SR-8C scopes;

•Daytime visible red dot on second focal plane with multiple brightness settings
•True one power
•Available in 1-4 or 1–8 models.
•Reticle is on first focal plane
•Capped Scope Turrets
•Fixed parallax
•Industry leading mil spec construction

All in all, I have never seen another optic that provides the versatility of the SR-4C and SR-8C from USO. You have a daytime visible red dot on one power that can be used exactly the same as an Aimpoint, and then as you go up in power you get a simple easy to use reticle for accurate shots a distance. All in one bombproof package.

So here’s your chance to own my original, and the first SR-4C complete with a Bobro mount. I’m a big fan of gear with patina and good karma, and this one has it in spades. The people, not myself, who have shot this scope are heroes, legends, and professionals from dozens of different organizations, units, commands, and branches. In the comments section on my Facebook page, in six sentences or less write what Brotherhood means to you. Think of the ones that are close to you, the 10,000 hands that came before you, the camaraderie of your friends, the closeness you develop when training together and the mindset and virtue that is common to all of you.

The winner will be chosen by me, my instructors, and some of my best bros from places where Brotherhood is legendary. The contest will be open for one week, from Friday March 21 to Friday March 28 2014. The winner will receive the scope and mount free of charge, no strings attached…..and it’s already zeroed.
