    Hide your wallet!

    Budget Flashlights - Fenix EO1, E05, Streamlight Microstream and Stylus Pro. If going bigger, Fenix E12 (I like simple small torches)

    Look for "EDC gear" on the evil bay for small pry bars and such. Imitations work almost as well as the real deal, and cost way less to replace.

    Best budget Multitool - Leatherman Sidekick or Wingman

    As of late I've purchased a lot of used SAKs (again, bay of evil), in very good/great shape, cleaned and sharpened them up. Half the price and there is no shelf queen syndrome.

    Also check the Buy-sell-trade (unlocked after 15 posts). Great deals on stuff! And so many great people to deal with...

    Most of all, try out new stuff and enjoy, discuss, etc.
