The Fitted Shirt

“Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "Wow! What a Ride!”

"Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water my friend."

Glint & Glow: Ru Titley Knives

Based in the UK, Ru Titley provides custom made knives, sheaths and tactical products. I first discovered his blog through valleydeepmountainhigh, who has helped test and develop the markers we’ll be talking about today. Based on the strips of SOLAS that ValleyDeepMountainHigh used in the military, ru-titley-knives has developed a whole range of products that provide exciting new ways to “Glint & Glow”.

I have been using a selection of his products for over 3 months now and they’ve been on my pack since I received them! Besides looking really cool the are truly effective at their job. Standard “Ranger Eyes” or “Cat Eyes” have a good initial glow, but fade quickly after that. These take identification to the next level as they are useful locators, even hours after charging, due to the glint combination. These could easily work as markers for your camp or individuals, I’ve even used them on the inside of our tent to help quick location of the zipper pull.

The Square MK4 is great for attaching to the small velcro squares on various TAD clothing (the first image shows it attached to my Force 10 RS Cargo Shorts). It’s low profile and convex edges mean it doesn’t catch as easily as I’ve found other Ranger Eyes do. As well as the rather cool ‘hive’ design of the Cyflect, the interchangeable central section means you can taylor this product to specific activities whilst on-the-move. 

The ITW Web Dominator MK3 attachment (see above) is really easy to attach to any pack with webbing (most outdoor packs have at least some webbing on them). Ru suggested undoing the screwed on MK3, attaching the Web Dominator, then re-screwing the MK3 on. I found that the Web Dominator could actually be attached in reverse. I’ve had two attached to my pack almost the whole 3 months with not even a hint of them coming off.

Last year I found myself walking along roads, often at night and often at my own peril. These have put an end to that and with something attached to my straps and the back of my pack I feel very visible, in a pretty stylish way.

I seriously, seriously cannot recommend Ru-Titley’s products highly enough. The build quality is fantastic and these inventive solutions are very worth getting hold of. Also they look really cool.

Check out his site here. There is a full selection of his gear on display here, from beautiful custom knives, to other creative products like the ones seen here. He doesn’t have a store, but if you drop him an email on rtknives@hotmail.com he’ll sort you out. He’ll ship to any destination and even offers discount for any Military, LEO, SAR Teams and First Responders to name a few, so be sure to ask about a discount if you think you qualify.

Goodman said, “Who else is coming on this show?” (In Los Angeles, movie people call a movie a “show.”) There was Steve Buscemi as Donny, Julianne Moore as Maude, Jon Polito as Da Fino. Joel said, “Our friend Luis, who was an assistant film editor on Hudsucker, will be playing the enraged Mexican.” “Yeah, you’ll like Luis,” Ethan said in a creaky voice. “He makes a big statement.”

"Turturro is coming in to play the pederast," Joel said. "He said he’d do his best F. Murray Abraham."
