Saw these today and found them interesting, thought maybe you would too.
For the gear whores here is a pretty no nonsense guy who has been there done that talking about how he set up his plate carrier and why.
And for the gun nuts thought this was interesting. Goes to show that it doesn’t need to be that extreme of a situation to cause a problem with you weapons. Get some rain before the temperature drops overnight or other wetness and it can cause a problem.
The historical parallel for this would be the Korean War naturally. I will have to find the source but there was instruction for troops in dealing with the cold and one of them was to actually not to bring you weapon into the warming tents as the snow and frost would melt to water then refreeze into ice when they went back out.
