In this episode of What’s In Your Pack, we look at multi-tools and headwear! Specifically a Victorinox Trekker and Buff Headwear.
Jim & Todd talked about their gear, unfortunately we didn’t get to include a few more people due to tech issues.
The purpose of this hangout is to pull out an item from our pack and just talk about it.
