GEAR REVIEW: A Look Back at 2012

by David Higginbotham,  |  published on December 28, 2012

Well 2012 has come and gone. The Mayans missed it. I’m still hankering for zombies, if only to quell the relative boredom. While I wait, I’m taking stock of what has come and gone.

Part of what defined 2012 for me was a deluge of guns and gear. With the new year just around the corner, and new products ready to be launched, I thought I’d take a minute and go through the highlights of 2012.

This is the best of the best gear I’ve reviewed in 2012. Not all of what follows made it onto the site, but most did. Some of this is still waiting to be reviewed. So here it is. Some flashbacks, some previews.

1. Maxpedition
One of the best all around products I saw for the first time in 2012 was the Jumbo EDC from Maxpedition. But there backpacks are great, too. For this installment, I’d like to highlight their Compact Range Bag. This small bag is ideal for keeping things organized and is made to the same rigorous standards as the rest of Maxpedition’s gear. The Compact Range Bag has an MSRP of $138.59.

2. MultiHolsters
Tony Catner at MultiHolsters is one of those rare craftsmen truly dedicated to what he does. I own several holsters that he made, and all are perfect. He’s my go-to for hard to find Kydex, and for new guns. As a review writer, I see sometimes see guns early and need to have a holster before a gun has hit the market. Tony is willing to work with my quirky requests, and knows his craft well.

This one below is an IWB for the new Colt Mustang. Flawless fit and a really subtle sense of style that fits nicely with the Mustang.
