The Olympus TG-5 Tough is an excellent rugged, waterproof camera. It’s perfect to have around when a smartphone won’t do, but a DSLR is too much. Or when you just need a heavy-duty camera. But like with any electronics, that doesn’t mean you should mistreat it. The best way to make sure your camera is always protected and ready for action is a good camera case. Here’s the best camera pouch I’ve found for the Olympus TG-5 Rugged waterproof camera – the Lowerpro Portland 30 Camera Bag. It’s also a perfect fit for the TG-4 and TG-3, the Nikon W300, the Rikoh WG-50 as well as the vast majority of compact cameras out there.

Nothing sucks more than turning your ignition key…only for nothing to happen. Well, almost nothing. It goes head-to-head with having to repair a flat tire on the go. The best way to avoid a dead battery is to check its voltage every once in a while. There are a few ways to make that job a bit easier. One interesting option I’ve found recently is the JS-8T Battery Voltage Indicator. What makes it pretty unique is that it’s compatible with any battery chemistry, including Lithium and Lead-Acid. That makes it perfect for cars, motorcycles and RC devices alike. Plus, it sure beats having to dust-off your jumper cables.

Nothing sucks like going to bed hungry. Especially in the aftermath of a natural disaster, such as following a tropical hurricane without electricity or normal services. After deciding to get a survival food kit for emergencies, I wasn’t just going to put it away without trying it first. So I went three days without eating anything else. Having never really tried prepper food before, I found the experience pretty interesting. Plus, I learned a few things too. Here’s my review of the Augason Farms 72 Hour Kit, including the conclusions I reached.

I wear earmuffs for hearing protection pretty often. Around a year ago I found myself not too happy with the stock ear pads on my earmuffs. It’s not that my hearing protection sucked, it’s just that after a few hours it can get tiresome. After looking into the subject, I saw that gel pads are the gold-standard for comfortable earmuffs. However, the gel pads for my 3M Peltor Sport Tacticals cost more than the earmuffs themselves. I wasn’t too happy with that. That’s when I found another, even better solution for a fraction of the price. Here’s how to make your own cheap gel pad upgrade for hearing protection earmuffs. I promise you won’t regret it.
