    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 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.

    Since your making pouches, how about a small one, say...3 X 4" for a little booboo kit bag or such. Thanks for all the great stuff you've added thus far!

    +1 on some lighter colored tee shirts for summer. Maybe something with a simpler design?

    I went to the shop tonight and I built up a nice kit that was fairly complete if I was new to bushcraft. I like to do this on various sites to see what it would cost for a complete setup. There was one thing missing....a bag or backpack to carry it all in.

    You must have really big ‘possums! The ones around here don’t get much bigger’n 8-10#s before they try car wrestling. That pretty much ends their existence.

    Great setup on the store. There's only one thing I really noticed that I would like to see and that's the sizes of the tarps when packed. I've been looking trying to decide which one to get. I asked around here on the forum and got answers pretty quickly, but it would be a nice option for those of us trying to conserve space or figure what will pack where. Either way, thanks for all you do and keep up the great work!

    I bought this grill not to long ago and have enjoyed using it. Inexpensive (cheap not a good word here) and easy to bring along. The pouch is nice for storage to keep other gear clean and you can throw in some stakes for placing the grill on easily.

    I like what I see. There is a fair amount of higher-priced gear, but there is also quite a bit for us budget-conscious folks.

    Other suggestions:
    Poly-cotton blend t-shirts (I live in a high-humidity area) with more subdued logos,
    A good collapsible/packable daypack,
    A good daypack-sized UL Hammock (bonus if it is camo to use as a ground blind),
    Some type of lower-price poncho/raingear. No doubt the BCO poncho is an excellent piece of gear and worth every penny, but I suspect a lot of budget-conscious families would like to see something trusted by BCUSA but more in line with their price range.

    I understand what you are saying about less expensive gear. I promise you we keep our prices as low as we can. I will use the new Koretemp Hooded Poncho Liner as an example. We have a following who wants a made and manufactured in the USA products. This costs at a minimum twice as much to have material manufactured in the USA . We also use cottage industry as much as possible. I won't break down the man hours and capital it takes to do this, but I think most people would be surprised. We will continue to try to manufacture quality gear, and try to make it as affordable as possible.

    This is going back to my 18th Century living history days but the stuff worked!

    How about a modern materials version of a Market Wallet in the size of a sleeping pad? I used to have one that I'd stuff with leaves for use as a sleeping pad, made from linen. KoreTemp fabric could be used. essentially, it is a full length piece of fabric folded lengthwise and the outer 1/3s are meeting in the center. The top is sewn shut and along the center seam and leaving a 2 or 3 foot unsewn hole for stuffing leaves inside. Being that the hole is in the center, the leaves will be less likely to come out. I'll attach some links with pictures....

    http://bethlehemtradingpost.com/bags-and-packs-on-line.php


    (Meant to be a funny clip with the oversized pack basket)

    The regular sized Market Wallet was also a handy as a foraging sack easily thrown over the shoulder. When empty, it rolls up to almost nothing.

    I'd like to have a mesh tent. Something for the summer that lets me stay tick free at night. Big enough for a tall person. Deployable with proper ridge lines. Decently tall basin-style bottom.

    I already have mine, but a basic envelope style pack seems like a worthwhile target. D rings on bottom, axe loop, single mesh inner pocket. Seems relatively 'do-able' in terms of design complexity.

    USGI-style canteen pouch with molle on the outside (alternative to a Mother).
