    An apex quilt that mates to the MEST tarp and/or poncho.

    A piece of silnylon that can be drawn closed & used as a one person shelter similar to a bothy bag.

    I'd like to see a BCUSA waxed Greenland / M65 style type jacket - something designed to fit over the infamous LR Boreal shirt.

    that green buffing compound for leather strops. Beeswax candles, probably mentioned already. And maybe Yeti coolers and coffee mugs.)))

    I’d like a woobie that snaps into the mest that can be used as an emergency sleeping bag.

    I would also like to see a woobie/poncho/tarp intergrated system. Especialy if arrived in Digital Woodland/MARPAT. (I know, I promise I'll be sober tomorrow)

    As long as we're dreaming a Windproof but breathable Kit Carry Smock, ala SAS.

    And maybe a nicely done quality ball cap.

    Also,
    Condor is coming out with a Wilderness Survival Shovel. Similar to the Cold Steel Spetznatz one. I'd just assume buy it from you guys as anyone else.

    I have a poncho called the O.P.S.E.C. its an oversized poncho specifically meant to double as a shelter in a pinch. If you are interwsted, lemme know and I will dig it out and get you the manufacturer and NSN number.

    I have a new favorite winter shelter. It was tough to get. I eventually ordered it online from the Netherlands. I do not speak dutchand couldnt figure out how to translate their website. It is called the Finnish Loue ii Shelter and its made by Vihe Vaellus. I think a lot of the members here would like it and Im not aware of any American companies stocking their products. Green on the outside. Silver reflective something inside. Heres a pic from google.

    The Loue and Loue II would also be way cool. I have been lusting after them for a while. I usually go by myself so the standard Loue might be my choice.

    Being from the northern Adirondacks. It's amazing how much Finnish gear I have accumlated over the years. Apparently a winter forest in Finland is very similar to a winter forest in upstate New York.

    For the record. All my wishes and hopes are just that. Wishes and hopes. Having owned a retail business. I understand how difficult acquiring new vendors can be. Especially ones from overseas. It all takes time and money. Usually more than anticipated on both.

    I also understand the desire to steer clear of size specific garments or gear. A 10x10 tarp ftis everyone. A 42 Regular jacket only fits 42 Regular folks.

    For a bit of moral support. If you view the overall big picture. You guys are certainly adding quality, real world, useable, gear. There isn't much on your site that doesn't make me go. Wow, I'd like to own one or three of those. I'm only checked by my wallet and/or my wife.

    Other than my Finish/Swedish deviations. I try to buy American as much as possible. Empire, Danner, Filson, Carhartt Double Front, And so on.

    I truly like that you guys try and offer a selection of U.S.A. Made goods.

    My basic rule of thumb is USA first, Canada second, nothern Europe third, and anyone else who isn't actively trying to blow us up a distant fourth.
