asked and we listened!
By popular demand, we are now delighted to offer the official
Meteorite Men Meteorite Hunting Kit. Created
and designed by Geoff of MM, this kit is identical to the one
he carries with him in the field.
There is nothing more frustrating for the meteorite hunter than
getting out to your favorite hunting site and realizing that you've
forgotten something important. That's why Geoff assembled all
of his most-used items, and packed them into a small, easy to
carry, tactical field bag.

ABOUT THE METEORITE MEN
Geoff of Meteorite Men is a meteorite specialist, photographer
and science writer and his meteorite hunting articles and photographs
have appeared in Meteorite magazine, Astronomy, Rock
& Gem, Sky & Telescope, Wired, Geotimes, Seed,
Sci Q, and many other national and international publications.

Steve of Meteorite Men stunned the scientific community
in the fall of 2005 when he discovered a 1,430-lb pallasite meteorite
buried in a cornfield near Brenham, Kansas. It is the largest
of its type ever found in North America. Pallasites are unique
among meteorites as they are composed of iron-nickel and olivine
crystals (the gemstone peridot).
The two friends have made documentaries about meteorite hunting
for Discovery, National Geographic, The History Channel, PBS,
and The Travel Channel as well as co-hosting Science Channel's
Meteorite Men adventure series.
