7.  Tent Heaters -- One of the few models that are actually approved for use inside Army tents.  The large tent heater is manufactured by Hurricane Heaters.   It will easily keep a battalion TOC (roughly 3-4 SICPS tents attached together) 60 plus degrees when it is sub-freezing outdoors. 

8.  Pistol Lanyards.  These aren't just useful for your M9 (or other pistol), they can be used to tie down ANCD's, PLGRs, and other sensitive items.  NSN 8465-00-965-1705 is green nylon, and 8465-00-262-5237 is white.  Blackhawk! also makes a pistol lanyard which is made of a coiled, black rubber-coated steel cable, with NSN 4020-01-493-8335.  The coiled lanyards will usually make it through a year-long deployment, and their flexible, retractable characteristics mean they won't get tangled up with the rest of your gear, compared to a "straight" nylon lanyard.
