    A local guy offered to get me in last year for a certain price. Honestly, I think the NRA show is better for people not "In The business"

    Wouldn't mind going, but the traveling and lodging just seem expensive.

    I'm here. Day 1 coverage is up on Trek Tech Black.

    Lodging is what you make of it. I'm at the Tropicana at $89/night. It's about two miles from the Sands Expo but the monorail gets you pretty close.

    I like the looks of the Vertx clothing...

    I've sworn off of all things "tactical" and from what you've shown of those pants they'll easily pass for "carpenter" or "general labor" pants in my neck of the woods.

    So the SOG packs you saw were of higher quality that what's available right now at wally world?

    Thanx for the coverage.

    I like the vertx shirt idea, but I want to see what it actually looks like. The pants just look like their existing casual pants with tool pockets....which is to say they look good but WAY too heavy.

    I'd like them, but I'm swearing off cotton as much as I can. It's just a terrible fabric.

    Unless you might need to use your pants as a flotation device :D. For most of us, cotton is far more likely to end you than save you.

    These Vertx pants could easily pass for skater punk in some areas. :D

    Yes, these are not your Wally World SOG packs. Like I said, I didn't get the chance to actually test one but they seem to be on the same order of quality as the Vertx pack, for instance.

    geostation Eberlestock has a camera bag out new this year. I may have also glimpsed a messenger bag at their booth but it was jam packed with people wanting to meet one of the guys from 13 Hours.

    Of course, there are the SOG packs. I haven't been to the New Product Showcase yet but nothing truly new has jumped out at me other than those two.

    Agreed. Usually it takes at least a week before most booths have videos out.

    Still waiting on spyderco and esee products.

    So, there are a few things I really like out of shot show.

    Not the least of which is cobalt's new rifle.

    If I ever get to the point where I can justify a three thousand dollar race rifle, I don't think it has much competition....assuming that mechanism actually stands up to some abuse.
