Guest Article: The Practical Application of Tactical Gear, Load and Weight Considerations- Part 2, by Max
The intent of this continued post is to tie in the related, practical application concepts of tactical gear, fitness, teamwork, logistics, and tactical loading, in order to present a realistic and logical way to approach the subject.
