Doug Small's Bio

Brewing beer, building bikes, and busting out the banjo are a few things that describe my afternoons. On weekends you’ll see me on the trail, at the crag, or maybe swilling a pint at the local pub.

This set is awesome. It packs up nice and small and it's big enough for a family of 4. The handle clips on and off super easily, and can even be switched out while in use. Make sure to take it off while your pot or pan is on the burner or the handle gets hot.

There are a lot of thoughtful features built into this bag that sets it apart from the rest.
I really like the padded shoulder straps so you can wear it on your back and keep your hands free for sketchy approaches. The window lets you know what rope you've got in it without needing to open it up. Good build quality and a big tarp means I'll probably be able to keep it around for quite a few seasons.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've typically bought Dakine gloves over the last few seasons due to a bad experience with some Giro gloves wearing out too quickly in the past. I was looking for something with some better protection and decided to give Giro another chance. These offer good protection with great fit adjustment. The cushioning on the knuckles is flexible and lightweight. I've put some serious time into these and have seen very little wear.

I'd definitely suggest these if you want a comfortable glove with some added protection.

Fit: Runs large

Great material, soft, durable but lightweight. The only reason I give it a four is it's a little wider around the body than I'd like. Less of a slim athletic fit like you'd get with Arc'teryx, so it looks a little bigger on me. Still a rad shirt, though.

Really well-made chair. Durable and super roomy. It also holds about four beers at once and has a built in bottle opener. The arms adjust and so does the angle of the recline. If I had one minor beef it's that when you sit back in this chair , it's pretty deep and you feel like you should have your legs up. That's not a problem when there's a log nearby to prop up your gams. Totally worth the price to have a camp chair I know will last.

This is the perfect sized pack for any day out on the river. It has well thought out pocket placement, plenty of storage for a bevy of fly boxes. The hip belt pockets are fantastic and plenty of loops and attachment points. Enough room in the main compartment for a light jacket or a few beers. As well as two bottle pockets and a rigging station. The only thing I really wish it had was a small water proof pocket for a phone , keys or anything you don't want to get wet. Other than that it's everything I want in a hip pack.

I've got this reel paired with a 7'3wt Butter Stick and loaded with Sharkwave Ultimate Trout Taper. For an inexpensive die cast reel it's very lightweight and extremely sturdy. This is my first reel without an adjustable drag. While it does take some getting used to once you do the result is fantastic. Fish are a blast to fight when you get one on the line. I'd really suggest pairing this with a smaller fly rod. It excels with drys and emergers. I've even set up a small dropper rig with good results. Not great for nymphing or anything that adds a lot of weight to the line and long casts require some extra attention. If you're looking for the perfect reel to pair with a glass rod or to fish your favorite small stream you can't go wrong with the Zero.
