Jonathan Wilson's Bio

Instagram @seadart86
Been traveling around and working overseas for most of my adult life. I've lived in Indonesia, Australia, Singapore, Argentina, Mexico, Russia, Romania, and Brazil. I'm an avid caver, snowboarder, kiteboarder, surfer, mt biker, trail runner, river pirate, and amature naturalist. I live and work outside and somewhere along the way I became a gear junkie. Lately I've been all about gear that serves multiple rolls, in multiple enviroments.
It's all about taking the good with the bad: like sleeping under the stars on a remote beach, you still get sand in your butt.

Not much of a fan. Maybe don't need.

Two issues: first I've come to realize that my whitewater boat and my flat water boat ride fine just on the bars. Any rotomolded boat is tough enough to withstand those stresses. If I had a cedar strip wood sea kayak these would certainly be in play. Second the connection on the round Yakima bar is terrible. To get it right enough not to spin, you end up chewing up the plastic coating of the bar.

The more I'm around any other straps as a raft guide the more I love the NRS straps. The cams don't corrode, the sticking is solid. The strap has a great 'hand' with plenty of grip to tighten up while wet. Pro Tip: if your strap gets frayed and hard to thread, cut on an angle. Get an old butter knife and a torch. Heat up the butter knife and shape and smooth the bitter end.

If you're running a frame on your raft these are the way to go keeping down the cooler, dry box, etc. NRS straps in general are at the top of their game. The cam does corrode like cheaper cam straps. The nylon strap has a go 'hand', meaning the feel in your hand as you grip and pull. Pro Tip: if you strap gets frayed and hard to thread, cut on an angle. Get an old butter knife and a torch. Heat up the butter knife and shape and smooth the bitter end.

Great water shoes

I've really enjoyed the porters for quick trips down the river. The angle lock cord wore through and Astral rushed me a brand new pair. So loyalty points to Astral. The grip is awesome on wet rocks. Barefoot or with socks they remain a comfortable stroll. Pictured: after rafting the Upper Animas outside of Silverton CO, waiting on the DSNGRR to bring us back to town.
