Two Watershed MTP items receive US Government NSN

October 29th, 2010 No comments

Recently the Watershed Weapon’s Bag M4-M60 (P/N: 12300-ZD) and the Weapon’s Bag M240 (P/N: 12301-ZD) have been qualified to receive NSN’s assigned by the government. A NSN is a NATO Stock Number, or National Stock Number (NSN) as it is known in the US, is a 13-digit numeric code, identifying all the ‘standardized material items of supply’ as they have been recognized by all NATO countries including United States Department of Defense. Pursuant to the NATO Standardization Agreements, the NSN has come to be used in all treaty countries, where it is also known as a NATO Stock Number. However, many countries that use the NSN program are not members of NATO, e.g. Japan, Australia and New Zealand. These new NSN’s are now posted on our website for easier ordering.

On a typical BC summer trip Evan Garcia and I motivated to get an evening lap of Fear Canyon of the Elaho. Fear Canyon is a great big water run a little ways outside squamish,BC. After bombing through some rapids, I handed my prized Canon EOS 7D in my Watershed bag over to Evan to film me. We continued down the canyon. As I followed Evan into a particulary gnarly looking rapid, I saw him drop into a monster hole. I paddled for my life and barely made it out of the same hole. I eddied out below. Evan was getting extremely beatdown. After a long beatdown, Evan swam and I saw my beloved camera float past in my watershed bag. Evan got back in his boat, and we continued down the river hoping to see the bag unharmed floating somewhere. I had almost lost hope when we finished the bottom rapid Evan rounded the corner and there it was, the bag floating in an eddy. We pulled up, grabbed the camera, and on further inspection at the takeout, my camera was unharmed thanks to my Watershed Drybag.
