The Possiblity Pack

Ever since Jim Bridger roamed the Tetons, MTN Men have carried a possibles pack when they ventured outdoors. MTN Men never left home without a rifle, a knife and their possibles pack. The bag contained all the essentials needed to survive in the wilderness. Today, some of the items may have changed but the need for the essentials to survive and thrive in the backcountry remains. Whether the modern mountain man is hiking, hunting, skiing the backcountry, fishing, mountain biking, mountaineering, traveling or even going to the “big city”, there is still the need to be prepared for all the possibilities in case things get “Western.”

MTN Man Possibility Pouch

This modern version of a utility bag is designed for the rough and tumble western lifestyle. Far more than your average zippered case, this pouch will withstand years of abuse, dirt, mud, and grime. While not built to be submerged in water, the MTN Man “Utility” pouch is made from a rugged 420D TPU tarpaulin that remains soft to the touch and flexible - even in extreme cold - while also being strong, tear resistant and a waterproof material.

The size and shape of this pouch are perfectly designed to enclose the elements of the Possibility Pack, or tools, first aid supplies, ammo or anything else you can throw in it.

MTN Man Buff

Cowboys and mountain men have never gone outside without a neckerchief anytime of year. The MTN Man buff is the modern, endlessly useful version of the tradition. It prevents frostbite on your nose and cheeks while skiing or belaying in a zero degree whiteout. Every Snake River fishing guide wears one to protect them from the blistering sun that - with reflections - is hitting them from 360 degrees. The fast drying, wicking fabric makes a great headband to protect the ears from freezing during a highly aerobic hike up Teton Pass. Our MTN Man camo offers stealth while protecting the face from the elements during a late season elk hunt. It provides cozy protection for the neck during a dog walk along the dike on a chilly spring morning. In the days of COVID, it can be worn as an effective barrier to keep you from spreading infection to others.

MTN Man Hanky

In high mountain altitudes, eye protection from the sun is essential. Sunglasses and goggles in the winter require constant cleaning in active pursuits. The MTN Man Hanky is made of fabric designed to clean expensive lenses quickly and perfectly without damaging them. The absorbent MMTS hanky makes a great towel to mop a sweaty brow from hiking up Teton Pass with a snowboard or up a steep canyon wall chasing chukkars. It makes a great wash rag with some Dr. Bonners after a sweaty day of hiking by a mountain stream. It will make a quick bandage if you’ve got a gusher. It will dry the eyes of a cowgirl you have to leave so you can head to the mountains and answer the call of the wild. Keep it clean with regular washing in any washer and dryer.

MTN Man Camo

As seen on the buff and hanky, our MTN Man Camo is inspired by traditional Scottish tweed. The original Scottish tartan plaids were not made with the flamboyant colors seen today. They were woven in patterns to create a camouflage specific to the region each clan inhabited. Tweeds were constructed by weaving individual yarns with wool died in up to 15 different colors to match the natural hues of the surrounding environment.

Inspired by this tradition, MTN Man camo consists of 16 different colors all drawn from Jackson Hole’s late September landscape. Several shades of yellow pull from the changing aspen leaves. Greens and blues represent the ubiquitous sage brush. Dark shades of green can be seen in the varied species of conifers. Many tones of grey and black are visible in the boulders and exposed cliffs that Jackson Hole is famous for. This kaleidoscope of color allows a hunter to meld into the surroundings during hunting season.

MTN Man Condom

Besides keeping MTN men safe when they go out for a few whiskeys, the MTN man condom has many other uses in the possibles pack:
• Pull it over the top of a jar with a stubborn lid. The added grip will make opening it easy.
• Use it as a portable water carrier or stealth whiskey container.
• It is highly flammable, so it can be used with a MMTS lighter to start a fire in wet conditions.
• It makes a waterproof container for a cell phone in an unplanned river crossing or swim to shore.
• Boxers fill it with water and freeze it to make an impromptu ice pack.
• Inflate it to make a fishing bob.
• Cover the barrel of your gun when hunting in crappy conditions.
• Pull it over your hand to retrieve something you dropped in the toilet.
• Cut it up to make rubber bands.

20" Voile Strap

Traveling in the mountains, whether hiking, biking, horseback riding, rafting or riding in a truck is the definition of “jostle”. A strong strap is essential to keep gear secure. The classic Voile ski strap was originally designed to hold skis together while hiking with them on your pack but they are universally useful for securing gear and fixing what’s broken. The unique buckle is fast and easy to adjust and doesn’t come undone unless you want it too. The strap has a slight stretch that allows you to cinch it real tight and secure goods through any kind of “jostle”. Example uses:
• Attach a spare oar on your raft.
• Make splint for a broken leg.
• Cinch an axe to your saddle.
• Secure a chainsaw to your four wheeler.
• Attach bear spray to your mountain bike frame.
• Join a fishing rod tube to your backpack.
• Splint a broken tent pole.
• Make a tourniquet.

MTN Man Duct Tape

If you can’t get’er done with duct tape, you’ve got a problem.
There are entire books and blog posts dedicated to the many uses for duct tape. Out in the wild, where having all your gear in good working order is make or break, duct tape will save you from the perils of torn tents and worn out jackets. Some example uses:
• Apply it to a splinter and let the adhesive pull that sucker out.
• Quickly repair tents, jackets, bags, gloves, pants, shoes, fishing poles, water carriers - you name it.
• A layer of duct tape on the underside of shoe insoles will provide extra insulation and warmth.
• Use it as quick support for a sprain.
• Tie down sleeves or pant legs if unwanted rain or dirt are getting in.
• Attach a flashlight or glow stick to a tree or hat to provide light where it’s needed.

The Original Bic Lighter

The lighter is a mountain man's most important piece of rescue/safety gear. The ability to build a fire can make the difference between a mishap turning into a good story or life and death situation. On the Teton County Rescue Team it is common practice to have a lighter in the pocket of every different coat and layering piece in your kit. On a weekend car camping trip you can not take enough lighters. 6 is a good place to start.

Check the pockets of any member of the Jackson Hole Air Force, Jackson Holes elite extreme skiing fraternity, and you will find a bic lighter. The only thing that works better than a bic is two bic lighters. Our bright yellow MTN Man Toy Shop lighter is easy to spot when dropped in the back country or left lying about after a few too many whiskeys by the campfire. The Classic Full size will give you up to 3000 lights and is big enough that it won't slip out of your hand.

MTN Man Fire Tablets

If you want to mess around rubbing sticks together and scraping flint, by all means - go for it. But if you want a hot fire going right now, grab some kindling, these tablets, and a MTN Man lighter and you will be warm in no time. Come rain, sleet or snow, these tablets will give you the spark to get’er done.

MTN Man Titanium Whistle

Sometimes, sh*t gets western; someone gets broke and you need it’s time to call in the cavalry. Don’t leave home without this weightless whistle to signal for help when it’s needed. Attach it to the zipper pull on your jacket or your pack. Or - train your pets and children to come to its call if hollering isn’t your style and whistling isn’t your forte.

550 Paracord

No MTN Man would head out on an adventure without a length of paracord in his pack. While the type of rope has certainly changed over the years, the multitude of purposes remain the same. Example uses:
• Hang your bear bag while camping.
• Lash materials together to build a shelter.
• Construct a rescue sled.
• Apply a tourniquet.
• Throw a rescue line.
• Create a sling for a broken arm.

MTN Man Ranger Bands

Think rubber bands on steroids. The name comes from Army Rangers who would use these heavy duty bands to tie down gear such as flashlights or knives so they wouldn’t stay in place while in stealth mode. Unlike those rubber bands that show up on stalks of broccoli, these are powerful gear ties that can withstand years of heat, cold, UV exposure, and repetitive use. Example uses:
• Keep spare batteries attached to a device or lashed together for convenience.
• Splint broken fingers.
• Secure backpack shoulder straps together.
• Mount a flashlight to tools or weaponry.
• Use them for emergency kindling.
• Keep currency in place by using the band as a simple bill fold.

Cyalume 6” Green Chemlight

TOn a moonless night deep in the backcountry, pitch black takes on a new meaning. These may look like a simple glow stick at first glance, but the Cyalume ChemLight is the gold standard in chemical light technology. Providing 360-degree light for up to 12 hours, these will get you from dusk till dawn on an unexpected overnight stay. Cyalume ChemLight sticks are standard issue for all US military personnel which is why we picked them for the Possibility Pack.
• Make a flashlight.
• Mark a trail.
• Signal for help.
• Mark Tripping Hazards.
• Maintain visibility even when flashlight batteries run out.
• Provide light when rain and wind make fires hard to start.
• Illuminate your camp even when fire danger is high.

MTN Man Disinfecting Wipe

Being a MTN Man doesn’t mean being an uncouth derelict. Health, hygiene, and high adventure all go hand in hand. These handy little wipes are soaked with medical-grade alcohol to help disinfect the places that need it. With germs and droplets on everyone’s mind and the blood and guts of the great outdoors, the uses for these wipes are endless.
• Kill COVID and other germs.
• Clean a wound.
• Sterilize a blister.
• Wipe away game animal blood.
• Remove grease from gun sights or glasses.
• Start a fire - the alcohol will light up quick!

TRANSFORM CHORES INTO A JOY

The vibrant colors of the G-Fusion line remind us that making nourishing, delicious food for those we love is an expression of who we are. We make tools to be an extension of the hand of the culinary artist.

G10: BEAUTIFUL AND BOMBPROOF

Don’t be fooled by the pretty colors, these handles are bombproof. Originally developed for the motherboard of a computer, this fiberglass laminate is extremely tough, feels good in the hand, and thrives in the hot and humid environment of a professional kitchen.

THE BEST STEEL FOR CHEF KNIVES

S35VN is the best steel available for kitchen use. Sharpness, edge-holding, stain-resistance, toughness: the powder metal process lets us pack in more carbon and special alloys with none of the tradeoffs of other high-carbon blades.

PROFESSIONALLY TESTED AND APPROVED

From top test kitchens like Bon Appetit and Food & Wine to Michelin star restaurants and your local favorite bistro, New West KnifeWorks is professionally tested and approved. “My Best Friend in the Kitchen.” Hunter Lewis, Editor in Chief, Food & Wine Magazine.

NATURE AND NURTURE: THE BEST OF BOTH

For those who prefer the natural look and feel of a wooden handle, we tested all the top candidates: Desert Ironwood rose to the top. One of the hardest woods on Earth, it makes a perfect companion in the kitchen for the cutting edge blade.

SKILLED AMERICAN MAKERS

A knife is an extension of the hand, which is why all of our knife handles are hand-finished in the USA. We don’t have an assembly line, each knife is taken through the entire knife-making process by one expert maker to ensure the quality of every blade.

SOLVING THE RIDDLE OF STEEL: POWDER ME

Traditional steel selection always involved trade-offs: too sharp and it becomes brittle, too much stain-resistance makes it cut like a butter knife, too tough and you can’t sharpen it yourself. S35VN steel gives our blades all the good qualities with none of the bad.

LIFETIME GUARANTEED

The craftsmanship of our knives is backed by a 100% satisfaction guarantee. We also offer free sharpening and service for all of our knives by mail or through our retail shops.
