CyFlect marker and custom “Ru loop”
So I carry a small MC utility pouch in my EDC which holds, surefire E1B Backup, spare batteries, ear defence, leatherman Squirt, Spyderco Grasshopper and my keys.
I use this custom made Kydex D ring which attaches to any Molle webbing. These have been dubbed “Ru loops”
I now have these on various packs and straps and they are very useful for attaching gloves, lights, cylumes etc.
I have now added a double backed CyFlect disc so I have a personal marking system on me always. It also serves as a means to finding this pouch in low light conditions.
Both products are made by Ru from firstname.lastname@example.org and are highly recommended.
Paracord bracelets by Naimakka………
I was lucky enough to receive some bracelets from a company called Naimakka.
All are hand made using a high quality 550 paracord and a custom shackle. They also come extremely well packaged which is a nice touch.
This version is in charcoal grey which I loved as it matched my TAD stealth hoodie really well.
I have been wearing this one for around a week now and it has been great. Custom made to fit your wrist you are guaranteed a good fit.
So far this one has seen plenty of climbing indoors, then a big adventure at weekend off out in the mountains.
Although there are many companies on the market that sell paracord bracelets sometimes it’s nice to go with basic design.
This version also works very well with casual clothing and looks quite smart.
I have a few more off this company so I will be posting more pictures in the near future.
If you get a chance go check them out over at -
The company is very well run and I received fantastic customer service. There photography is fantastic too.
Thank you to all my followers………
I just passed 1,400 followers thank you all for your continued support!
Someone asked about helmets. How does the old school Pro-tec stack up to the helmets like the Ops core? I know you can still add the same stuff to them just like Ops Core, and have been used for freefall. What's your opinion?
I haven’t used a pro tec so I can’t really give an honest answer.
I know which version you mean tho the Pro tec Alpha. They look pretty good.
I did look at getting one of those too, they are just hard to come by in the UK.

What makes that helmet particularly good? /post/78359148780/ops-core-ops-core-fast-base-inforce-wml
Thanks for reaching out.
They offer slightly more protection I’m lead to believe than a standard climbing helmet as they are rated for parachute jumps and cover more of your head.
The chin strap and retention system is fantastic and very secure.
In my opinion what makes these helmets so good is the ability to quickly add various lights, cameras and optics.
I also use a dedicated SAR helmet that I will post a review of soon. That too is a great helmet and in non military colours.
I am on the look out to try a Team Wendy Exfil also.
Cylume light shapes from www.lumisafe.co.uk
I received some samples from the good folks over at lumisafe to have a look at and test out.
This is the “light shapes” from Cylume.
A round disc that has a strong adhesive backing that is easy to activate, you simply give it a squeeze to activate.
It provided a bright light source all night and provided a good marker at a distance. More than enough light to read a map buy or light up a small room. These would be a great way to mark vehicles for SAR teams or buildings once searched.
Most defiantly a product I would use again.
Go check them out over at www.lumisafe.co.uk
