Fall 2018 Gear Guide

Fall 2018 Gear Guide

Check out what’s new for our Fall 2018 lineup:

We’ve been hard at work this summer designing and sourcing some awesome new products. You’ll find updated FiST bundles, new accessories for your Battle Board, more Rite in the Rain notebooks, as well as some of the most talked about everyday carry gear that can go with you everywhere (well, everywhere but on planes - don’t take knives or firestarters onto a plane - unless you’re an air marshall, then do you).

New From Battle Board

Updated FiST Bundles

We’ve thrown all of our best eggs into the same basket with the new FiST Bundles. Now, you can get all of our best accessories and your Battle Board FiST in the same place. Choose from our Essentials, Plus, or Premium bundles.

Essentials gives you an expedition, swift, waterproof map pouches, a protective cover, and a Staedtler Lumocolor pen.

Plus throws in everything in the Essentials, grease pencil 3-pack, and three of our best selling new overlay sheets.

Premium gives you the kitchen sink. You get an Expedition, Swift, AND a Leaf, our 14 pack writing kit, 3 overlay sheets, our new Accessory Pack 2.0 to attach your board anywhere, and a snap fastner kit so you can repair your board should anything go wrong when you’re in the field fighting wildland fire or on long isolated deployments.

Overlay Sheets

A lot of people had been asking for overlay sheets, so we set to work designing a lightweight, tough, and precisely engineered sheet to tightly snap on top of your polycarbonate board.


Now you can use our crystal clear overlay sheets to share mission plans with your team, protect your polycarbonate, and create the most complex of fire plans all for $9.95 for the 10” X 12” and $11.95 for the 12” X 16” (comes in packs of 3).

Accessory Pack 2.0

With the new Accessory Pack 2.0, you can attach your boards while you’re in the TC seat, riding in a turret, or to handlebars, steering wheels, or anywhere else you can think of! We also threw in our popular accessory clips for keeping your stack of reports in place, and a durable wrist compass.

You get mini-carabiners, handlebar straps, large elastic straps, mini-elastic straps, accessory clip 4-pack, a wrist compass, and a strip of loop tape, all for $12.95. Comes in Coyote and Black.
