A few weeks ago I was contacted by a really nice guy wanting to sponsor the blog. His name was Mike. After some research, including a scan of ebay rankings, business website profiles, and other sources, he checked out. Mike and I began talking and we decided that the first piece of gear I'd review would be the Zebralight SC600II. If you follow this site, the light needs little introduction. It is probably the smallest 18650 light on the planet and one of the two brightest as well (the EagleTac TX25C2 is the other, shootout coming...hopefully). A chance to get my hands on this torch which has been in high demand since its release was an offer I couldn't pass up. It also happens to be something I couldn't get through any of my other channels.
Mike's site, E2 Field Gear with a slightly different focus from most of the mainstream gear commerce sites. In part, E2 Field Gear tries to stick exclusively with US owned companies to stock its virtual shelves. They also carry things that are slightly off the beaten path from the normal light and saber stock (though they have that too), including awesome stuff like Field Notes notebooks and Green Mountain Grills.
Welcome Mike and E2 Field Gear. Thanks for the light and I can't wait to work with you again. Oh, yeah, there is a bonus for you. If you buy things through his site and use the code "Commentary" you will get an 8% discount AND benefit the site. It is a good deal all around and I look forward to reviewing some more unusual stuff.
This is probably going to force me to buy some Field Notes for review. And my "probably" I mean "definitely" and by "force" I mean "tempt".
