As the days start getting longer again and winter fades into the past, it’s time to turn our thoughts to camping and adventure. Here’s a quick look at some items that made TAP’s 2022 Spring/Summer Gear Guide.
Create that campfire feeling wherever you want, the portable Kamoto Fire Pit can be used anywhere, with wood or charcoal, for ambiance, cooking or grilling. It packs flat for convenient storage and travel, and quickly unfolds faster than you can build a fire!
In addition to any campsite or rafting rig, this leave-no-trace, use-anywhere fire pit is ideal at the beach, your backyard, or even a parking lot tailgate party. The integrated ashtray/base protects the ground from heat or embers. A removable grill grate is ideal for open-fire cooking. The powder-coated frame is stable and robust for countless campfires. The stainless steel windshields and the air inlet tray combine for efficient combustion.

Robert Young Pelton and William Harsey, Jr collaborate to create the ultimate tribute to Army Special Forces/CIA Paramilitary legend, Billy Waugh: The Billy Waugh DEMO Knife.
Together, Pelton and Harsey fine-tuned a design only a warrior of Billy Waugh’s level could sign off on. Inspired by the standard issue multi-purpose knife Waugh remembers from his Vietnam days, the Billy Waugh DEMO is not only a knife fitting of the special operator, but an homage to toughness, and performance under fire.
The DEMO features a balanced three dimensional Titanium alloy body with a retro diamond pattern and vintage finish. The four inch flat grind M390 blade is on bearings, with flipper, glass breaker screw, and an Awl on bronze washers. The knife comes with a replacement flat head screw. The deep pocket combat clip is engraved with Billy Waugh’s signature, the blade is laser engraved with William Harsey’s signature.
Billy Waugh has a military and intelligence career that can only qualify as legendary. Prevented from enlisting for WW2 because of his age, Billy signed up for the newly created Special Forces, choosing the most dangerous tasks our nation demanded. He is the recipient of eight Purple Hearts and has a lifetime of service to America, continuing his Special Forces career all the way to the opening months of the war in Afghanistan.
Only 250 copies of the Billy Waugh edition have been created with one off, custom numbered stonewashed versions made available through RYP Design’s exclusive dealer, Straack.com.

Meet the Delta Pro Shovel and Mount, straight from DMOS Collective.
We built the Delta Pro Shovel to be incredibly tough, but surprisingly lightweight. This big bad mother of a shovel weighs in at only 3 pounds, 8 ounces (less than a sack of flour!), but it delivers on it’s promise with over 1000 pounds of payload. Featuring 3 blade modes (shovel, hoe, or collapse to stow) and 3 adjustable handle lengths, this is a full-sized shovel that is meant to work. It’s impeccable design starts with premium aircraft-grade aluminum, selected for its unique balance of strength, weight, and style.
But as we all know, the best recovery gear won’t do you any good if it’s at home. That’s why we recommend pairing our impeccably designed, incredibly strong, surprisingly lightweight Delta Pro Shovel with our secure and rattle-free Delta Mount – for overlanding tools that are always at hand and never in the way.
Made from premium aluminum, the Delta Mount comes as a full kit for installation, including the backing plate featuring pre-drilled holes (or drill your own for custom mounting!) that accommodate up to 2″ ladders or racks or bars. Mount it to your roof rack, truck bed rack, ATV/UTV roll bars, MOLLE panels, snowmobiles, or whatever your steed is for the adventures at hand. Because we know gear envy is a real thing, we additionally designed it with a standard locking lynch pin, or add your own combination or key padlock for the ultimate security.
