Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is probably one of my favorite lines for my local area. It is a bit noisy, but nothing close to the Shark line. It floats great, and stays for flexible, even in the freezing winter weather.
I also like the textured line as it allows me to grip it with a finger a lot easier, and where I got small cuts in my fingers from sharkskin, this has yet to do that to me.

I have this paired with my Fly Pig and Sage One 5 wt and 4wt rods. Could not be happier.

Have had these boots since they came out and do love them as they allow me to change soles very easily and they hold up very well. As someone that pushes their luck in the stream to get to a perfect spot I have ran into many rocks, logs, etc and these are holding up great.
The BOA system does work great, but I have had to replace it once already which Korkers covered. Other than that I have not had a problem with them.

Fit: True to size

I am a person that likes basic/plain shirts, I don't like all the graphic stuff usually. Bought a few of these around the holidays and do not regret it. They are that nice 50/50 blend which makes it feel soft and light.
I bought the Deep Heather, Kelly Green and a few other colors. I will definitely be buying more. They hold up real well from hiking, fly fishing, climbing, or sweating it up at the race track, I typically have one of these shirts on or around me.

Definitely a good buy.

I use these as my indoor climbing shoe. Love them, they fit my skinny feet well. I wear a 10US street shoe and go a full size down for these, so in La Sportiva's sizing chart is a 42.

The rubber on these is sticky enough and the shoe is able to do what I ask of it, though I don't climb outside with them, so cannot comment there. The Velcro system works great for my foot, heel sticks nicely. Just a great all around shoe for the price in my opinion. Anyone looking for a good cheaper shoe I recommend these or the 5.10 Rogue shoe. I have also heard good things from beginners on the Evolv Deft shoe.
Just make sure to find the shoe that fits you best, not the shoe everyone tells you to buy, you will thank yourself later.

I think most chalk is all the same. This stuff is good, been using it for a few weeks now and it is pretty chunky at first, just crush it in the bag and you're good to go, or of course use it how you feel.
In the gym it works very well, anything outside I tend to still use Bison Designs, but that is just because I use two different bags for the occasions.

Fit: True to size

I bought several different colors of these, love them. I am a basic shirt kind of guy, and these fit the bill. Got them for a great price and very happy so far. They are comfortable and light. Fit true to size, and quality feels great so far.
