APALS from Brite-Strike

     APALS stands for all purpose adhesive light strip. The APALS was originally developed for military use. The APALS being a tiny adhesive LED that's completely water, dust, and shock proof. It's amazingly tough and incredibly flexible. The lights have been used for everything from camping and hunting to neighborhood walks after dark and school spirit rallies. I'm going to use them for marking deer stands and trails. They are also good to put on your bicycle and on your shoes for jogging. These water tight lights are small, light weight, bright disposable, and affordable. Now the APALS can be seen from up to a quarter of a mile and has a run time of 40 hours. With a tactical touch switch you can go from  a fast strobe to slow strobe and steady on/off. You can find APALS and other gear at This has been Max from Maximum Survivalist and always remember to be careful and God bless America.

Smith&Wesson M&P 15-22 AR

     With the 22 rifle being one of the most popular rifles in the American home, I would like to do this gear review on the Smith & Wesson M&P 15-22. This tactical rifle is chambered in a .22LR and the 22 platform offers the fit and feel of the company's popular M&P 15 rifle. While being chambered in the more economical ammunition. The upper and lower is made out of reinforced polymer. The benefits of it is that it helps reduce weight while retaining the look and operating features of the standard M&P 15. The barrel is 16 inches long with a 1 and 15 twist. It has a standard six position collapsible stock to accommodate a variety of shooters. This rifle comes with a A-3 style flat top upper receiver with a quad rail hand guard for easy mounting optional accessories and A2 pistol grip to improved firearm control. The M&P 15-22 comes with a fully functional charging handle and a AR15 style magazine release, bolt catch and a two position receiver mounted safety. It also has a 25 round magazine and A-2 style front post sight and A-2 rear sight with a single stage trigger.This has been my review of the 15-22, as always be careful and God Bless America.

Mini Portable Gas Stove

 Hi guys, Max from Maximum Survivalist here. This evening we're going to do a gear review on the mini portable gas stove by Nyliyan. You can use this stove on  a camping trip or during a power outage and even in your bug out camp. This is a light weight stove, weighing in at 4 oz, and you can pack and store it without taking up much space, seeing at it measures out 3.15 x 2.16. I like to cook on an open fire but this stove can be used if you are on the go and you don't want to put out much light, and especially if you are in a really dry area where building a fire could be hazardous. I tell ya this cooker is really good you can bring a pot of water to boil in less than 5 minutes. So I hope this information helps out and as always be careful and God Bless America.

us canteen with nbc cap

U.S Canteen with N.B.C Cap

     Hi guys it's Max from Maximum Survivalist, coming to you with another gear review. I think today we'll take a look at the U.S. military issued canteen with the NBC cap. These canteens are used by people such as hikers, outdoors men, but it's primary user is our U.S. military.
     Now when these canteens were first used they were made from thin metals such a s stainless steel or aluminum. They would get dropped which would cause dings and even holes causing the water to leak out. This day and age they are made from a hard plastic and are equipped with what is known as an N.B.C cap. (N.B.C stands for nuclear, biological, and chemical) This special cap allows you to attach a 28mm drinking hose from your gas mask to your canteen and safely drink without contaminating your water and/or yourself.
     The canteen comes in it's own carry case, which is made from a sturdy nylon, and has its own canteen cup included.This no frills cup can be used for cooking, heating water, signaling for help(metal banging on metal is an excellent noise maker), a heater(combined with esbit tabs or gel fuel), an emergency shovel, or just drinking a hot cup of coffee.
     Well folks this has been my point of view on the U.S. canteen, hope it's been informative. Remember to be careful and as always God Bless America.

Tagua middle of back holster

Hi guys, it's Max from Maximum Surivavalist with a new gear review. We going to to look at the Tagua middle of the back holster. This holster is all leather and weighs in at around 4 oz. I use the Tagua holster for my full size Glock, and anyone who carries a full sized pistol knows how hard it is to conceal. But this holster is very comfortable and truly does sit in the middle of the back. It's easy to access and your gun sits safely and securely without feeling like it's slipping and sliding around. I hope this review was informative, if you have any questions feel free to ask me or comment, and as always be careful and God Bless America.

Coleman glow stick

Hi guys it's Max here from Maximum Survivalist, with another review for you. Today we're going to take a look at the Coleman Ilumistick  glow stick. These light sticks come in an array of colors. From what I've read and understand green is the strongest and brightest while on the other hand white is the weakest. I use the red and orange for distress and safety. I used a blue one for testing purposes and only tested it for about 6 hours, but I had excellent results and was satisfied. You can also put them in the freezer after the initial use for a longer life span. They have a shelf life of somewhere around 2 years and are great for a variety of uses, such as camping or hiking. You can even use them at home during power outages or when you take the kids out trick or treating. Especially since they are nontoxic and waterproof. Just take them out of there package, give them a snap and a good shake. You will have instant light for about 12 hours. Hope this info has been helpful and as always be careful and God Bless America.

Black Scout Survival: Becker BK2 Review

Black Scout Survival: Becker BK2 Review

Becker BK-7 Review

Hey Guys this is Max with Maximum Survivalist with
another gear review on the Becker BK-7. It was designed by a chef named Ethan Becker. The BK-7 has a full tang blade that is 7 inch drop point blade. The blade is constructed of 1095 CroVan Steel which is flat ground. Providing a super sharp edge and is easily sharpened. I might add with the thick .188" blade allowsfor prying, chopping as well as many other field craft you may need. This is a full tang fixed blade and has a protective matte black epoxy powdercoat finish for stealthy protection against the elements. It weighs a stout 12.9 oz's. The sheath  is made out of a nylon. I'm not a huge fan of the the sheath. I will be looking into buying another sheath. Thanks for checking out my review of the BK-7. Remember be safe and God Bless America.

Smith Knife Sharpener

Smith Knife Sharpener Review by Max. Excellent tool guys. Thanks

SOG Tomahawk Review

Check out my most recent review on the SOG Tomahawk. Let me know your thoughts guys. Thanks

Reviewing 2 Multi tools

Hi guys this is Max coming to you from Maximum Survivalist and today we are going to be checking out the differences of two multi tools. The first one is by Winchester and weighs right around 12.03 oz. Now included on this particular multi tool is a set of needle nose pliers on one end and cutting pliers on the opposite end. Also attached is a serated cutting blade and medium knife blade as well as a small sized knife blade. Next you will find a phillips head and medium and small sized flat head screwdriver, plus a file with a 3 inch ruler on the opposing side. This particular multi tool comes with a handy carry case and several additional attachments for the screwdrivers.

Our next multi tool is made by Gerber and it weighs approximatley 8.96 oz, it has a push button release on  it. It has needle nose pliers with a wire cutting abilty and a serated edge blade along with a secondary blade that measures out at 3 in. It has a can opener, a bottle opener and 3 different sized flat screwdriver heads and a phillips head. This particular multi tool has a locking mechanism to hold the other attachments in place while using one tool in particular.
Gerber is the Winner

While both tools are very similar they do have differences for instance the Winchester weighs more but in doing so in that 3.07 oz added weight is 10 different screwdriver attachments. As for Gerber it has locking tools that stay out of the way while your using a single accessory. In my opinion they are both good tools in about the same price catagory, but my pick would be Gerber hands down. I would really love to hear from you guys as to which multi tool if any you choose and/ or you use  and why. Thanks this has been Max
