Many of our readers are active LEO’s, military or folks from the intelligence community. And some of us operate in high threat environments will trying to stay below the radar as the grey man. Many others are former members of those communities and/or passionately focused on being prepared and taking personal responsibility for their safety. As such, we regularly look at tools for the grey man and the everyday prepared.
Wazoo Survival Gear makes products that exactly fit that bill. Based in Longmont, Colorado, Wazoo has been producing quality products since 2013. They engineer, build and sell the tools they want to use, informed by their experience in SAR, NASA, the Coast Guard and as first responders.
One of their top product lines is their Cache Wear line, which includes the Leather Cache Patch.
I love this patch and have since modified other patches (both hook and loop and permanent patches) to create similar cache capabilities. It is a perfect little low profile tool for storing a few critical items, including a small blade, cash, handcuff keys and a lock pick set.
Wear it on your hat like any other morale patch, or stick it to your car headliner, inside your pack or anywhere else you have hook and loop material. I’m sewing piece of it to some of the jeans I wear and it will look like any other label on those jeans.
It will be in my kit when I next head back to South Asia.
