Altama Maritime Assault Boots

As the name implies these boots were designed for tactical assault elements operating in marine environments. More specifically they were designed so that units like the US NAVY SEALS could wear them under their flippers and quickly transition out of their flippers when boarding a ship or conducting other dry land operations. In the past, these units sometimes wore skater shoes like Converse All-Stars or Vans. Obviously this was not the purpose for which these sneakers were originally designed and the skater shoes faced some limitations when it came to durability and their ability to dry quickly. Enter, the Altama...

KUIU Stalker 500

KUIU STALKER 500 The Stalker 500 is designed as a low profile hydration pack which can be easily stowed inside a larger backpack and deployment on the final stages of a stalk, hence its name. Its shoulder straps are ingenuously made to fold into their own dedicated pockets to minimize bulk when riding inside a larger pack. The Stalker 500 also features a dedicated foam padded hydration pouch, two additional storage pockets, water repellent Ripstop Cordura fabric, Duraflex hardware, and YKK zippers. Over the years we have found ourselves continually purchasing hydration packs of comparable size from companies like Camelback,...

We figured now would be a good time to do an honest write up of our favorite bows that launched earlier this year. #3 The Prime Logic IBO Speed: 330 FPS Brace Height: 7” Axle...

Medkits & Mountains

It was a chilly November night in the Catskill Mountains of upstate New York. I was back at the house cleaning my gear and washing up after successfully recovering my first kill with a bow. My emotions were still settling from roller coaster ride of adrenaline, concern, anxiety, relief and reverence that accompanies every kill. I was washing my knife in the sink while reflecting on the events that had unfolded during the past few hours when I slipped and ran the blade down my right index finger just above the last knuckle. I wasn’t spraying arterial blood or anything...

New Release: SEVR Broadheads

Here at Knights of the Apex we have always been very apprehensive about mechanical broadheads, specifically because we have seen them take some pretty wonky deflections off of rib cages. That being said we do concede that their lower aerodynamic profile and often larger cutting diameter have obvious advantages. So we were highly intrigued when we saw the release of these new mechanical broadheads by SEVR.  These things are loaded with features. The most notable of which being their trademarked and patented Lock-and-Pivot design. As the name implies, this design locks the blades open on impact creating a 2.1 inch...
