Gear that gets you through hard times

If you are looking for something to wear that is tough and durable when you need to survive in the jungle, you need to check out EDC gear(s) from tacticaldistributors.com. Normal clothing and footwear that you can purchase from regular stores will not be able to endure the torture, which they will face when you are tracking on rough roads. However, the best advantage that you will get from Every Day Carry Gear is the comfort that comes from wearing these gears. Not only are they comfortable, they also provide you with safety that is crucial to keep you alive in a harsh environment.

Click on their website and see what type of gear you will need to get when you are planning a camping trip. The best place that you can find these specially made EDC items is this website. The main difference in getting gear like this will be your mind set. Now, normal people will only think about either comfort, or style. Most people will not think about the safety aspect of their backpacks or clothes, when they are spending money purchasing them.

If you are someone that likes the military, these gears will not only look cool to wear, they will also give you a feel of what it is like to wear them if you are not enlisted. The best thing about them is the fact, that if you are planning to join up, wearing and getting used to gear like this will give you an advantage when you are in the core. Most people that have never worn items like this will not have a clue how to use them correctly when the time comes. So, if your child is going to the service, it would be a nice idea to give them all the advantage they can get before they are shipped off.

Keepsake from CIW inmates

I saw this crochet throw pillow case inside the cabinet buried in the pile of untidy throw pillowcases and bed sheets. It brings back memories that made me a little bit sad. It was given to me by one of the women inmates at the Correctional Institution for Women (in Mandaluyong) after a visit and interview with some of them. 

This throw pillow case is one of the many handicrafts being created by the inmates to support their personal finances inside the prison. 

On this note, I wish them all well and hopefully they (those I’ve personally talked with) were already released from the institution and living a normal life now.
