Aire used to sell these as a pair, but they are now sold individually. The product itself has not changed, just the way they package and sell the oar stops. These will fit oars 1 7/8" (and slightly larger) diameter shaft.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've been using a pair of these all summer and I have to say that Astral nailed it. Kayaking footwear has traditionally been one of the weaker areas of gear that has been available. The Brewer is super durable, super comfortable, and actually fits in a kayak...plus, they actually look cool too. I highly recommend the Brewer for your next water shoe.

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

So I had a chance to paddle one of these recently and I just had to get on here and post a review. The hull design on this boat is KILLER. Without getting into too many "technical" details about the design, this boat cruises like a boat longer than 13.5', but handles like it's much shorter. I couldn't believe how fast it was and yet how tight it turned. It will easily hold enough gear for long weekend trips as well and even longer if you are good at packing. I liked it so much I have two of them on order for my wife and I. It will be perfect for cruising around and camping on the mountain lakes near where we live.

I use these oar stops on my Cataract Oars and they work perfectly. I have a pair that are rope wrapped and a pair that have the plastic sleeve and these stops work with both. They cinch down nicely and don't slip. I would definitely recommend them.

Yeah, it folds into one of it's pockets....

Yeah, it folds into one of it's pockets. It's very compact when stuffed in the pocket. I recently used one as a day pack on a river trip. It's great because it doesn't take up any space when you aren't using it, but when you need a decent sized day pack it's perfect. Super comfy and even though it's really lightweight it seems to be super durable.

So I own two Watershed Colorado bags (and quite a few of the other Watershed models too). Watershed bags are without a doubt, the driest bags out there, but what I love about the Colorado is it's size. Many river trips (unless it's your own private trip) will only allow you to bring 1 dry bag that is roughly 6500 cubic inches or less. This bag is 6400 cu inches...PERFECT. Two of them seem to fit perfectly side to side across a raft as well and the HUGE D-rings are the best I've seen for strapping the bags to the frame. The durability of Watershed bags are second to none as well. So often I have a piece of gear where I say "I wish they would have done...to this, and it would have been perfect". Not with the Colorado. This bag is PERFECT.

I have a 70 lb lab mix and he loves this thing. It packs down small and is really light weight. Because it has synthetic insulation in it, even when he goes and lays down in a creek on hot days, it wrings out really well and dries fast. It's the perfect pad when we're hiking and I even take it with us on day hikes. I was also worried that his nails would rip through the fabric, but so far so good...seems surprisingly durable for the weight.

The Zing is one of those pieces of gear that might take a minute to pull the trigger on, but once you have it you wonder how you ever went this long without one. Unless I'm on an actual multi-day backpacking trip, the Zing is with me. It's perfect to set up over the kitchen to keep the rain or sun off. We camp a lot in the desert and the Zing really makes a difference when escaping the sun isn't always easy. The zing also stands up to wind really well...a lot better than the 'ole cheap big box tarp tied to a tree method...plus, with the zing you don't even need trees to set it up. The only negative I can say is that I wish I would have bought one 20 years ago...
