Love living out the life of a spy? Well, ThinkGeek might have just the thing for you with the Uzi Tactical Pen, where this unique writing instrument can double up as a potentially life saving tool when the situation calls for it. The DNA Catcher which is located on the crown of the pen is very sharp, and hence can be used to deliver a very nasty jab to an attacker that causes not only extreme pain (and an opportunity to bolt away), while giving you a sample of their DNA to use when you go to the police. If you aren’t anticipating any attacks, the crown also functions as a glass breaker just in case you’re stuck in your vehicle. Made out of high-grade aircraft aluminum, it can write upside down or under water. This ought to be one of the few $19.99 pens out there that comes with a 1-year warranty…
Our favorite tactical pen is the Impromptu Tactical Pen. It’s made in the USA, comes with a Cerakote coating and works with space pen refills. It looks sleek while still offering all the features you might want in a tactical pen.
Our favorite tactical backpack is the 5.11 RUSH12. It is made out of 1,050 denier nylon making it rugged enough for pretty much every use case. There is more than enough storage with a 24-liter volume, a 60-ounce hydration pocket and 16 compartments.
