Happy Birthday to the United States of America. We are proud to be American. Proud to be American made. Proud to call this our home. We hope everyone has a Happy 4th of July.
Without further ado we’d like to present the “Big ASS”. Its the LMIW backpack you won’t want to live without. We designed her from the ground up to be your everyday carry. She’s built tough to take whatever it is you throw her way. She’s a full 35 liters of places you will want to put your junk. From her basket weave bottom to shed rain and sand like a sieve, to her voluminous interior she has what you need. A diamond quilted cordura 1/2 inch yoga matt back for extra padding, and dual full side zippers can conceal a laptop or our own drop in holster sleeves (coming soon!). Molle rack on each side for your favorite sheath or accessory (like a Footlong or Holmes!) and velcro loop straps for an axe handle, or machete. In addition the slots on the sides are designed to fit LMIW inserts and pin into the grommet at the bottom the same way as they do on the sheaths. Seat belt quality/strength straps and top carry handle are sewn to extreme so she can take it. Ever break a ladder lock and render your pack worthless? Yeah we have too, so at the bottom of each strap is a backup steel D-ring just incase. Of course she has some of the same features as others: 3×2 patch spot, zipper pocket front and a carabiner loop, but that’s about the only similarities. Seven internal pockets to stay organized, yet there’s room for whatever else you carry. Sewn with 92 pound thread that’s UV coated into Mil-Spec 1000 denier cordura she’s built to last. And as all LMIW products she is designed in the USA, built in the USA, and proud to be American Made. We love her already and we are confident you will as well.
I’ve always carried a “Firesteel” as a last resort. But until now it was usually packed away somewhere and not readily accessible – Well no more! The “Dangleberry” is a no-nonsense clip on, last ditch necessity. It holds any standard firesteel/ferocium rod securely. A hollow inside for tinder, and a place for your favorite 3×2 patch. Attached with an H&K clip fastener and sewed to the extreme, it’ll be there when you need it!
Very excited about this weekend! I will be there walking around and gawking like the rest of you. We didn’t get a table this year but would be happy to meet up with anyone interested. I’ll be wearing our new backpack prototype and have our sheaths on hand for all to see. In addition a new line of organizer bags and a firetool/tinder holder we call “Dangleberry”. Pictures to follow later today. Hope to see you all this weekend!
Sometimes you don’t need the kitchen sink. Sometimes you just want to pass around your favorite blade and show it off. Sometimes you just want to stuff it in a bag and go. Whatever the case may be sometimes things should be simple. In the spirit of the upcoming Blade Show we want to show off a few things we are working on. So over the next few days some pictures of our latest creations will start to pop up. Hope you like! Oh, by the way, it fits all existing LMIW inserts, so if you already have an insert all you’ll need is the case. If not we’d be happy to sell it as a complete package.
A link for each insert size is available now at the bottom of the Footlong page. This is a temporary solution until the new website is launched. Thanks for your patience.
