Familiarity: I've used it several times

Everything you could ask for in a leader! With preformed loops it is easy to attach to your fly line! I have the 7.5ft and 9.0ft for creeks and rivers accordingly. Seem super easy to unroll. I have not used anything else so I am not used to other issues with leader. I attached this tippet to this leader:

Strong and comes in the proper size for the trout I am looking for! I have the 3x and 5x. The trout are biting so they must not be able to see my line, sweet! Just attach to a leader by using a simple Surgeon's knot and you are ready to cast!

Familiarity: I gave it as a gift

My mom really likes this paddle! It is very light compared to other ones she has used in the past. It was easy to cut down to the proper size, just need a decent hack saw! Also the blade is not too big so you don't have to be a body builder to make clean paddle strokes.

I have a car and this Kayak is great for running mellow rivers with friends and family. Super easy to inflate/ deflate / and pack up. Rapids were a non issue in this thing. We had a cooler and three people in it at one point (although tight) the weight was totally fine!

I recommend this pump: http://www.backcountry.com/aire-barrel-pump-4-in

Proper fit right outta the box!
5 5

I loved these right out of the box! No hotspots or anything on my feet! I typically wear a 9-9.5 in most shoes. However I downsized to an 8.5 and the fit was perfect and comfortable.
I have used these already in some hot desert conditions and your feet will get warm on account of the Gore-Tex insert, I was able to handle it however. I recommend using lightweight breathable socks on hot days. NO COTTON!
I got these because I frequent the Pacific Northwest and need that waterproof-ness.
