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.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These boots are surprisingly burly for how light they are. I've been in them for a year and they have almost no signs of wear. They're the perfect boot if you have a hike to get to your hole. The only thing I'd like to see would be more drainage. The only drain holes are on the inside arch of the boot.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

When you’re sick of toting around a bunch of extra stuff, a Tenkara rod is the way to go on a small/medium river. It feels natural to use, is light, and telescopes to a very manageable size. The included wooden line holder lets you keep your setup as it is, telescope the rod down, and hike around to new spots without fumbling over a full-length rod.
This kit is a great intro fly fishing because you can literally start right out of the box. I enjoyed the simplicity of using nothing more than a rod, a line, and a fly. I also can’t wait to try this out as a backpacking rod. Given its small size and light weight, it’s sure to be a winner. If you want to go simple, go Tenkara.

Fit: True to size

These are good all-around shoes. Sturdy, but reasonably light-weight. They vent decently and were comfortable out on the hiking trails as well as around the office. As another reviewer noted, I did find the toe box a bit narrow. I’m guessing the narrowness has prompted some to buy the next size larger. I didn’t find the narrowness to cause serious discomfort and I suspect they’ll open up as they break in.

I've had ultralight compression sacks in the past and typically they don't hold up. Seems split, straps tear, and they end up in the trash. These are exceptionally well built. Mine was crammed into my saddle bag on a 6,700 mile motorcycle trip and returned with no wear after a month of use. I purchased the Small size for my WM Versalite 5'6

Fit: Runs small

Definitely size up if you'd like to wear both the liner and the outer glove at the same time. Disappointing to find that the liner is NOT waterproof neither is the shell. Hands were wet in moments while riding in the rain. I ended up ditching the liners and was actually warmer with just the neoprene glove. I think they'd work better for cold but they just don't cut it for wet.

I got the 6in version of the work pliers and I'm loving them. Good bye to hemos and nippers. Great functionality! There are times when I wish I went up to the 8.5in version, like on cold mornings. Awesome tool, would definitely recommend the upgrade.

This is a lifesaver, I purchased it for a motorcycle trip I was taking. It gave me the ability to have music playing but without having to fumble with my phone on the bike. The remote works great and the battery seems to last for about 9 hours as stated.

It's also really cool at home to be able to turn any set of speakers into a wireless sound system. An awesome cheap little piece of tech.

Solid sound quality for such a small package and great volume. Definitely a better wireless range than most other speakers in this category. It has a threaded mount that is compatible with most camera mounts which makes it easy to mount on a bike. Rugged and rubberized, this thing can take some abuse.

Great size and easy to use. They pair well with any of the Nomad Panels if you are looking for a solar option. Gives me about 75% charge from dead on my HTC One. If you are looking for something to give you some more capacity check out the Flip 20.

I probably should have gotten this sooner seeing how I'm probably not the expert skier that I think I am. First off this is probably the nicest looking helmet that's out there. Plenty of colors to go with your kit. The upgrades that they've made to the new version leave this lighter and give you more airflow options over the previous years Vantage. I always run pretty warm and end up sweating in whatever I'm wearing. I have yet to overheat in this. The BOA system is killer and will give you a snug fit even for the strangest head shapes. Also the earpads are removable and have a zippered pocket so you can drop some speakers. Bottom line this helmet is the way to go if you're looking for a comfortable, well ventilated lid.

Who knew fixing gouges in your base could be so easy? I watched a few YouTube vids on base repairs and now I'm P-Texing like a pro. Make sure to get a metal scraper with these if you don't already have a sharp one.

I love these! Its super easy to swap lenses, easy to clean. Mine came with the Red Sol-x and sensor mirror. The Sol-x is great for bright bluebird days and the sensor is fantastic for overcast or storm days. I have to say that 80% of the time I'm using the sensor, its a killer lens. The size is perfect for medium size faces and they offer great peripheral vision.

I've used a few different reservoirs in the past and this is by far my favorite. The big opening makes it really easy to clean out when you need to. The bite valve is sturdy and drip free. I love the quick disconnect hose, it makes it super easy to get in and out of my packs without messing with the hose. The quick disconnect parts are also compatible with my Katadyn Hiker Pro filter. I have had mine for about 3 years and it is still going strong.
