    Singer 66 - Will it work?

    I've been keeping an eye on a Singer 66 Centennial that is posted on Craigslist. I'm looking to make some bags, pouches, webbing loops, etc as well as eventually dabbling in the diy saddles. Will this machine be able to handle these different tasks (going through several layers of heaving...

    Black Friday or Christmas sales for Seek Outside / Stone Glacier / Kuiu?

    Socks - Altera alpaca / Darn Tough Merino (edit... Alpaca/Merino Socks)

    I would like to upgrade to a premium, unconditional lifetime warranty sock (both for hunting as well as everyday work). Altera and Darn Tough both seem to fit this bill but two different materials. On paper, Alpaca seems like it is a superior choice, but I would like to hear some first hand...

    Safeguard vs ISC D2 Escape for Oplux

    Has anyone used ISC D2 Escape descender (https://www.iscwales.com/Products/descenders/RP860-D2-Escape-Descender) on Oplux? It is specifically for 8mm rope. Doesnt look like it can be installed mid-line, but needs to have the end of the rope fed through. Is that correct? Specifically looking...
