Doug Ritter Gear

After evaluating survival gear for two decades, Doug has developed some very strong opinions about what works and what doesn't; what will save your life and what might not. In some cases he has given up hope that someone else will deliver a product that includes all the features he would prefer. As a result, he has begun collaborations to produce gear to his own exacting specifications. One key feature has been that all this gear must be affordable and a good value a well as being gear you can bet your life on

Proceeds from the sale of Doug Ritter Gear supports Doug Ritter's Knife Rights' efforts to free knife owners from irrational knife restrictions.
