What's The Strangest Place You Found Gear?

Or the oddest thing you found to use as gear?

After a PM from Viking asking me about a pair of gloves I was wearing in a picture, I figured it'd be interesting to hear who else found cool gear in an odd place, or an odd item that turned out to be cool gear.

(My gloves came from Extra Foods; they were President's Choice gardening gloves that I got for $5 on clearance sale)

I have a Penney keeping my stock from wobbling because I'm too lazy to fix it.

I have been wearing a $30 pair of safety glasses from canadian tire that look like sunglasses and don't even know I'm wearing them. I also use a lot of Blenderm tape from Ebay (I can't buy it in Yellowknife, so bought 10 cases of it on ebay). This is 100% useful in R/C, and somewhat useful in airsoft. Blenderm sticks underwater and is like magic.

And FINALLY, I use a cut piece of a chair felt to keep magazines on cansoft guns in line.

You can find some pretty sweet stuff at Princess Auto in Winnipeg. I've heard of people buying alpenflage and ACU 24 hour assault packs there. For cheap to!!!!

I love shopping at T&T whenever I back in Vancouver.
Unfortunately Saskatoon doesn't have a T&T.

I wish we had one here so much! Could you imagine being able to go to T&T every day and buy a fancy cake?









yeah, I totally derailed a thread about gear and turned it into a thread about cake. Lets go back on topic now.

I found a grimlock on the ground in a parking lot.

I have this knack of finding lost things. It's cool when no one will claim it.

Oakley Assaults in my size at a Winners for $60!

They had the tan ones too but I didn't buy them and I regret it. I have never seen them there again.

Hmm found a helmet, ground sheet and CVC gloves when I was clearing out cages at work one day. Lucky me, now I don't have to hand any of those in when I leave.

I'm assuming that you are talking about boots; not the gloves?

I picked up my gloves fro $55 canadian, but geez... $60 for boots is a fantastic price.
