5 Favorite Products Picked by the Harry’s Staff

Harry’s has a ton of awesome products available online and in our store, but have you have wondered what our bestsellers are or which products the employees use? The answer is that our staff uses a variety of our products on a daily basis, but I have asked 5 of my fellow staff members to pick out their favorite product and to give us some insight as to why it is their favorite product.

1. Benchmade 15020-2 Bone Collector picked by Jordan

Here’s what Jordan had to say:

“I am a huge fan of the Benchmade Bone Collector 15020-2! It does a great job of combining modern functionality and old world charm. The cutting edge D2 blade steel offers an extremely durable yet razor sharp factory edge, and the AXIS locking mechanism gives some of the smoothest action I’ve seen in a folder. The walnut handle is simple, functional, and elegant. It looks great and fits comfortably in your hand. On top of all that you are getting a knife that is made in the USA, with a lifetime sharpening guarantee and a lifetime warranty on the knife through Benchmade. This knife is great for collectors and for people looking to put it to work. You really can’t go wrong with this knife and it comes at a great price of $132.99.”

2. Condor Urban Go Pack picked by Andrew

Andrew says,

“The Urban Go Pack has a simple, yet functional design. I like that the pack is made of a high quality nylon and has many practical features for everyday life including an independent pocket for a laptop. This pack has space for essential equipment like first aid kits. This bag can be used as a school bag or as a nice day pack for hiking.” 

3. Decorative Metal Signs picked by Carl T.

Carl says,

“I like all the cool metal signs we have in the store. There’s so many cool vintage signs, everything from superheroes to classic military posters. We’ve also got some pin up girl signs! I love all the superhero signs and have more than a few hanging around my house. These signs are great for any man cave or collector of military memorabilia. And thanks to the never ending variety of signs, I never get bored with trying to figure out which one I’m going to buy next!”

Please note the selection we have online are just examples of what we have in store. We have over 50 different signs to choose from in our Dearborn location!

4.Bates GX-8 Waterproof Side Zip Tactical Boot picked by Adam

Adam loves this boot because:

“This uniform boot is super comfortable and extra durable. At an affordable price you’re getting real leather, a GORE-TEX waterproofing system, and a slip resistant outsole. This is the perfect boot for people working in the first responder  field, like police or EMTs, or for anyone wanting a high quality black boot. The GX-8 is my kind of boot.”

5. Simmons 8 x 24 x 50 Zoom Binoculars picked by Carl Douglass (Available in store only)

Here’s what our most well known employee had to say about these binoculars:

“These Simmons Binoculars are my personal favorite! It has the capability of using them for sporting and casual events, they are also great for nature observation, like bird watching. The zoom offers you the opportunity to have multiple binoculars. They are durable and very easy to use.”

These are just five of the products adored by our staff. Stop by the store to check out everything we have to off and get more information on our favorite products. Our staff is highly trained and more than willingly to assist you in finding YOUR favorite product!

 

Ultimate Survival Gear, The Zombie Apocalypse Continues

By the looks of it, we have all survived the Mayan Apocalypse without any problems, so now we can all go back to waiting for our favorite world ending event; the zombie apocalypse! With everyone’s favorite zombie show, The Walking Dead, off the air until February, we thought we would give you your zombie fix with a list products to complete imgresyour zombie apocalypse survival kit and make you the ultimate zombie killing machine.

To start out the list, we all know that everyone imagines themselves looking like a bad a$$ when the zombies rise ( myself included), so you need to have the perfect zombie apocalypse outfit on hand. A basic military BDU pant is a good choice due to the functional design, including several pockets to store your extra ammo. Don’t worry ladies, these pants also come in pink camo so you can still have a touch of femininity during Tactical Vestthe zombie invasion. A tactical vest is also a smart choice. All of the pouches allow you to keep all of your gear close to your body and easy to access. Throw on a moisture wicking t-shirt on underneath and you’ll be good to go. Another great option would also be a leather jacket. Tough and durable, leather may help prevent biters from getting to your skin. What you have on your feet is also important. I suggest a tall leather boot.

As far as zombie weapons and zombie tools, guns are typically the most efficient, but not everyone has access to guns and some do not even want guns in their Machetehouse. So here are some creative, yet effective alternatives. The Parang Machete is a great choice for those of you who don’t mind getting close to the walkers. The ergonomic handle has a comfortable, textured grip so the chance of slippage when your swinging the machete through the air is greatly reduced. The SOG Tomahawk is also perfect to have during the rise of the dead. Not only can it be used to destroy zombies, it can be used for other purposes like chopping wood and it can be attached to your belt.

In addition to all of these items, Harry’s also has a number of survival items like food and water rations, first aid kits, emergency blankets, and more that are all practical items to have around the house in case of a more likely emergency, but would still be great to have in case of the zombie invasion.

All of these items will help make you look like and feel like the ultimate zombie killing bad a$$, but it’s up to you to summon your inner warrior to get the job done.
