Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have this on everything from a 3 weight reel I use on small streams to a 10 weight I use for pike and saltwater. While it is probably overkill on the small reels as most fish I would catch are not capable of taking me into the backing, it is nice to add some diameter to the spool so the fly line doesn't get wound so tight.

This thing is a beaut, but not so pretty that you don't want to use it. It also comes with a really nice leather holster that isn't shown in the product photos. I can't wait to use it this camping season.

This is a nice shirt that isn't as loud as some prints out there on the market today. I agree with Alex Manfred, I needed to trim some loose threads when I first wore it but it has held up since then

I previously had a long sleeve Stoic shirt that was tight in the elbow and forearm region, and I am very glad the fit was updated for this shirt. I am 5 10, 165 and ordered the medium. it fits perfect. The shirt is comfortable for the office, but I wouldn't recommend climbing in it or doing other outdoor activities, it doesn't stretch quite like a comparable Patagonia shirt.

Fit: Runs small
Height: 5' 4"
Weight: 120 lbs
Size Purchased: 8.5

This is Nick's wife:
Bought these nikes because I am on my feet all day for my job and needed a black alternative to my blue Nike Pegasus pair I use for running. I actually like these better than the pegasus because of better cushion and arch support. I'll plan on running in these too! I did have to size up half a size after ordering my normal 8 which I normally wear in Nikes. The size 8 fit but the toe box felt tighter than normal and I went with the 8.5

I recently got this boat over other kayak alternatives mainly because of the stability and ability to actually cast from the boat while standing up. My parents had some fishing kayaks but they weren't nearly stable enough to stand up in and cast a rod heavier than a 5 or 6 wt. I haven't fished heavily out of it yet due to winter, but have taken it on some short paddling test runs and it is super stable.

One con is that it does not track well when paddling standing up, I recently got the optional skeg and hope that helps keep it straight.

This is Nick's wife: I love this swimsuit (also bought the matching bottoms) fit is great. Built in cups, stays in place, love the pattern and style. Overall win. Fit may be a little small. I am 5'4", 120 lbs and 32b and ordered a 6 based on the size chart. I think if you have a big chest, broad ribcage or shoulders you may want to size up.

This is Nick's wife. I bought this top for a trip to Hawaii. It is great, has built in padding, ties nice in the back and fits well. Only odd thing is that it drys a bit weird. Not sure if this was due to ocean water or if it would happen in the pool too. As it dries it gets a color gradation across the top in shades of green. Once it dries it is gone. Not a big deal but there are certain points when it looks a bit weird, like as the gradation crosses the nips. Oh well!

This is Nick's wife. We recently went to Hawaii and I bought a ton of swimsuits from BC. This one piece is a keeper and well made. So flattering, stays in place, gives you a tiny waist. It is a win! Sizing: I originally ordered both the XS and the S and went with the S. I am 5'4", 120 lbs, 32b. I feel like the sizing difference was mainly in the length of the swimsuit. XS felt shorter. I will say the S may be just a tad big in the chest but nothing that bothers me in any way.
