Jedi powers
5 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times

This rod is amazing. I picked up a 7wt to go chase stripers and bluefish back in Massachusetts on trips home. It is a fantastic rod to cast, the grip reduces hand fatigue and is extremely comfortable in your hands. I paired it with a Rise Reel and some RIO lines and quickly was able to double haul fly's out far! No fish on it yet, but that should hopefully change in the future!

North Face Quality
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
Height: 6'
Weight: 205 lbs
Size Purchased: Large

While the North Face may sell way more Denali Fleece's than anything else, this jacket is an exceptional piece of technical outerwear. I have used it for well over 50 days and have no issues with the waterproofing, seams, zippers, or colors fading. I do have a small tear in the jacket but that was from carrying skis one day (rocks+metal edges=sharp). I would recommend this jacket to anyone looking for a resort shell. Its a bit bulky (read:stiff material) to be an easily packed backcountry jacket, but I make it work. two inner mesh pockets hold a waterbottle or goggles, the sleeve pocket has a goggle wipe included, and is a great place to store a mouth guard or an RFID ticket. I don't use the two upper chest pockets, and the hand pockets are small and inaccessable with gloves on, but good for small items. Wearing a beacon underneath does not alter fit of the jacket, and it is a great piece.

As a duck hunter, skier, and general bad weather enthusiast, warmth and concealment are equally important. This buff covers both of those, with the added benefit of UV protection. It defenitly helped keep me concealed during my days hunting this fall, and also keeps my neck warm while skiing. I look forward to being able to use it while fly fishing this summer, especially on streams with finicky fish. A great buff!

I took this down to Fruita for a weekend of mountain biking, and had some pretty good results with it. They have added a software update to allow the camera to film inverted, which is awesome! The only downside to that, is you need to make sure to select that option on the camera every time you turn it off. If the camera times out, you do need to re-set it to inverted. I did a run at the lunch loops and a run on PBR at 18 road and did the shake to edit feature. This works really well, however since it mostly tracks speed, it also highlights any time you slow quite quickly, leading to some sub-par footage. The upside is its quick and easy to remove those clips and add better ones in to your video. Quick, easy, and the ability to view and adjust camera through your phone and change some settings is great. Size is a bit bulky compared to others, but under the handlebars it is hardly noticeable.
EDIT: Video only uploaded in a max of 240, not sure why that happened, but it was not intuitive to make sure it published in a higher quality.

I received these pants a few months back and have been waiting for the weather to cool off enough to give them a good review. When you are on the bike, these are some of the most comfortable riding pants. I generally ride in Levis 511's or 514's around down, and these blow them out of the water. They do feel as though they are designed for the cyclist. The mini chamois inside adds just enough padding to make the trip to the bar or store that much more comfortable. It is unnoticeable while you are standing or sitting on anything but a saddle.

The pockets on the pants are numerous, but neither of the phone specific pockets actually fit an iPhone 6, but thats a very small issue. I love to wear these and will continue to wear these around and ride.

My only gripe with the pants is the belt loops and the button fly. I like button fly pants, but when there are two buttons holding the pants up at the top, it makes it difficult to actually un-do the buttons to use the fly. You're pretty much required to fully un-button to use the bathroom. The belt loops are angled in odd directions on the front of the pants and interfere with one of the buttons. Anything larger than a 1" wide belt is tricky to use, and anything with a traditional style buckle is almost a no go.

Sizing is strange, I'm a 36x34 in most pants on a bad year and 34x34 on a good year (Levi's 511 is what i am referring to here).
I got these in 34 waist and they are as roomy as a 36 Levis.

All in all, a fantastic option for those looking for something to wear around town while riding your bike.

These things look great. I'll keep them in the pack to counter my standard hemostats, but they have pinches for split shots, and small nippers as well. These will definitely come in handy for pike and other toothy critters as well!
