Improvise Photo Contest: Win Awesome Tools from Leatherman!
“Improvise, adapt and overcome” is a popular saying in the military—and for good reason. When something can go wrong it will. That’s why it pays to think outside the box. From a creative use of duct tape to makeshift shelters, you have your own way of problem solving.
Partnering with Leatherman, MilitaryGear.com is excited to launch The Improvise Photo Contest. We’re asking you to show us how you improvised. Just submit a photo of your unlikely tool or solution and tell us how you did it. To get started, visit The Improvise Photo Contest page.

The winner takes home a pretty cool prize package. The Tools of Improvise Prize Pack includes a Leatherman MUT ($180 retail price) and a LED Lenser M7R Rechargeable Flashlight ($150 retail price). These are especially handy tools for the gun enthusiast.
Designed for military and civilian shooters, the Leatherman MUT boasts 18 tools of awesomeness, including a three-bit count. Among the tools you can find in this ridiculously amazing multi-tool are wire cutters, combo knife, hammer, saw, carabiner/bottle opener, large bit driver, cleaning rod/brush adapter, bolt override tool, replaceable firearm disassembly punch, replaceable bronze carbon scraper, front sight adjustment tool, replaceable cutting hook, needle-nose pliers, and 3/8-inch wrench. Whether it’s the shooting range or the field, this little bad boy might just become one of your favorite pieces of kit.
To light those night patrols, the M7R Rechargeable Flashlight provides up to 220 lumens of bright light. Outfitted with the Advanced Focus System, it ensures you have both a focused beam for long-distances and a light source for up-close situations. The Rapid Focus system allows you to easily switch from reading to searching with one flip of the bezel. Probably best of all, this handy flashlight can be recharged in as little as five hours. Say goodbye to added battery costs.
