    Leathermans are usually a good PX buy.

  6. Not on Arr**** F*ck up 04

    Bose sound systems hell of a lot cheaper. North Face Gear
  11. Camelbaks, and as mentioned, 501s. Bought a pair 9 years ago, and they still fit.... sort of :oops: .
  12. Maglites.
  13. In Afghanistan you could 'buy' one of the checkout girls, :D (*ahem* allegedly 8O ) she was sent home after $5000 was found on her. :twisted:

    Apart from that try the strangely flavored sunflower seeds.
  14. makeup??? 8O
  15. Household linen (sheets, towels), luggage, some hand tools. If there is a military clothing store it's worth a look if only for boot zippers ( I think that's where they keep them). Zippo lighters.
