The photograph, taken with a Leica IIIa, was published a week later in Life magazine among many photographs of celebrations around the United States that were presented in a twelve-page section titled Victory. (Wikipedia)

The Mil-Spec Monkey and Tactical Tailor have done it again. They combined forces to make a new product that embodies everything I love about tactical nylon in the new MSM Adapt Pack design. This one has so many cool features - just watch the video:

We just got these babies in and we will have them at the show this weekend in Monroeville! Plus, we'll have a bunch of other new stuff from the Monkey, RangerUp, 7Point62Designs, and our usual array of fine tools and cutlery from CRKT and SOG.
