Organized anti-terrorist actions provide a lot of emotions, especially when we can admire them on a TV or laptop screen. In more than one movie, we can see the complicated activities of special units that try to rescue hostages or stop dangerous criminals. Close Quarters Battle is certainly an extremely interesting field. There is no room for error in the schemes in which the units act. That is why the training of members of special formations is so important. Often the lives of action participants depend on one another. In this post we will try to bring, what exactly is Close Quarters Battle.
Preparations for this trip took almost a year. The plan included Rwanda, Uganda and Kenya. Within 6 weeks, we were to cover this route by land, local transport, without the help of an agency, because we organize both this and our previous trips ourselves from start to finish. Long we wondered about the things that we needed and will prove themselves both during trekking and on safari. It is known that during a trip longer than 2 weeks, and when packing all things into a backpack, every kilogram counts, which later weighs on our back. Therefore, it is worth considering what things will work and what conditions to expect in given places. That's why I do some research before each trip.
Bushcrafters call it EDC (Every Day Carry), the military IPS (Individual Survival Package). Different names, but a common task, which is to provide the owner with a minimum of self-sufficiency in casual terrain. A set of items ready for use in an emergency must be: waterproof, small (it can be carried in a pocket in case of loss of equipment) and resistant to mechanical damage. The basic IPS looks similar to most Special Forces operators. It can be divided into sets, each of which is responsible for a separate aspect of military survival.
Fall and even winter do not have to mean the end of the running or trekking season. All you need is the right and thoughtful outfit to be able to continue your active sports life in peace. What you wear as the first layer of clothes is very important. Thermoactive underwear will be the best possible solution. This is a good solution because, firstly, we do not overheat our body with a thick layer of clothes, and secondly, we avoid soaking our clothes with sweat. How to choose the right thermoactive underwear? Read our post.
Combat actions take place in various scenarios. Both in forest areas and in the city. It is the spatial conditions that determine the color of the soldier's uniform. Part of the world's armies create their own camouflage patterns, private companies also do it on request. The point is not to make the camouflage stand out. It is supposed to be effective, i.e. it is supposed to integrate the adept of the art of war into the field. Of course, some of the patterns are specific to a given army. That is why we decided to introduce you to the 10 most interesting military camouflages that you can find in our store.
The popular theory of "threes" is that a person is able to survive: 3 minutes without oxygen, 3 days without water, 3 weeks without food. While the first two points are indisputable, it is worth considering the third. Can we really survive that long without any food?

Thirty-four years have passed this year since the disaster at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant named after Vladimir Ilyich Lenin. It would seem that this is a long enough period for the emotions related to this catastrophe to disappear forever. However, this is a wrong impression. It is enough to mention the events of April 1986, and you can almost immediately hear the voices of people remembering the unpleasant taste of Lugol's liquid, which was given to them to drink by hygienists employed in schools and kindergartens. Chernobyl has become an inseparable element of our pop culture and a symbol of the fight between man and the atom.
When it gets a little cooler outside, you should take care of your body's thermal comfort. The change from warm summer days to gloomy fall can be drastic. Before you know it, the day is shorter. For cold autumn mornings and evenings, wear a kangaroo jacket. Each of us likes it when the feeling of warmth in clothes goes hand in hand with the comfort of wearing. A combination of these two functions will give you the kangaroo jacket. Why is this a good choice? See for yourself.
As the sun goes down, you should give up your activities and start looking for a shelter. In the mountains, it gets dark faster than on the plains, and it is difficult to prepare a place to rest in conditions of limited visibility. Lack of a shelter in the face of wind, rain and low temperatures can lead to hypothermia, i.e. a drop in body temperature below 35 degrees Celsius. This condition leads directly to death.
