I recently made a repeat visit to Redoubt Surplus & Tactical at their new location, just north of Bonner’s Ferry, Idaho. I stopped there to pick up some more ammo cans and other assorted surplus items from among their big selection of gear. While I was there, I learned that they recently acquired more than a dozen used Polish army surplus commo wire spool deployment backpacks, complete with 1/4-mile-long spools of green heavy-duty two-conductor insulated field telephone wire. These, of course, pay out the wire behind you, as you walk. Due to their weight, Redoubt Surplus & Tactical is selling these only in their store — not by mail order. They are offering used packs, each with one full spool of continuity-checked wire, priced at less than $120!
