I like interesting EDC pocket tools, whistles, flashlights, things made of titanium, knives, and other doodads. I have several sources for things I want but do not "NEED":

http://www.countycomm.com/
http://www.uniquetitanium.com/
http://www.majorsurplus.com/

I peruse a few sites to see if they identify interesting things hitting the market.... GlockTalk is one. Others are:

http://www.candlepowerforums.com/vb/content.php
http://www.edcforums.com/

I have been to many of the prepper oriented forums.

I am looking for other sources for "hey that's pretty cool" or "how did I live this long without that" type things. Or maybe interesting surplus places that carry stuff other than the typical backpack and MRE type stuff, like titanium pressure tanks fro the space program or something (I am sure I can find a use for one:supergrin:).Do you have any suggestions? Cheaper does count. If I want insanely expensive, I will go custom.

Thank you in advance for you input.

+1 on dealextreme.

Plus www.mouser.com and www.digikey.com as well. They carry parts & pieces for small-scale projects involving batteries, diodes, & other component-level items.

www.lighthound.com has a good selection of lights, both name-brand and house-brand.

www.batteryjunction.com for batteries and a small selection of outdoor gear. They're where I buy most of our batteries from D size down to 123's and coin-cell.

www.batteriesandbutter.com doesn't have a lot of "cool-factor" stuff, but has all kinds of things from batteries to playing cards to disposable razors

Thank you for you suggestions. The last time I looked at deal extreme it was mostly flashlight bits and electronics. I see they are expanding in other areas.


It seems the rest of the the viewers of this thread are "Bogarting" their sources.

I like to hang around some of the nooks and crannies of ebay catagories...collectables and odd stuff...etc

and not quite what you described but there's always something interesting and "hey that's pretty cool" at www.thinkgeek.com (http://www.thinkgeek.com)
