    At SHOT Show, CRKT announced something coming very soon.
    It's an add-on for paracord straps that is a plastic case with a compass and either a ferrocium firestarter and/or an LED light (there is also one with just a bottle opener).
    It attaches to your paracord strap with a screw-on backing that holds it in place.
    With the price range from only $12-$16, is anyone else waitin for this to come out?

    Found a video here. It's a little large for my liking, but a cool idea. I could see sliding this over a bag strap.

    I wouldn't want it for a bracelet, but it would be awesome for the sternum strap on a backpack! Are they available for sale yet?

    Most retailer sites are listing availability as "Coming Soon" (translation: RSN (Real Soon Now)).

    One site attached some numbers to it and list availability as 16-25 days... don't ask me... those numbers could just be off the dart board/Magic 8 Ball/tea leaves.

    Any ship/arrival dates for an unreleased/newly released product should be taken with a boulder of salt unless the retailer can confirm they have the shipment on their loading dock (and even then, only after they have done a manifest check).

    They had a signup where they'd email you when they are released, so I signed up.

    I really want one, but it seems they are just beginning to be shipped.

    Not sure having a ferro-rod with a high iron content that close to a compass is a good idea.

    I know this is an older post, but has anyone picked up one of these yet? I've seen them for sale online and even on Dvor, but not yet in a store.

    I went to a gun show a couple weeks ago and someone had them.
    I didn't get one, but they are out now.
