like sleeping in a giant hot water bottle :) been using it for 5 years and it is still going pretty strong. very warm well built bag
These are great for everything that needs a strap. It's always nessasary to keep some in your car for activities that involve straps.12 footers will happily go around two kayaks! The cam buckles are tip top solid goods :) just remember to put them through the safety loops on your boat just incase ;)
Nice, solid construction they will last for along while! Much better then old goon bags in the back of your yak, plus they can be clipped in so they won't float out if you bail. Makes rescues that much quicker, easier and therefore SAFER. If your boating buddies have no floatation, tell them to get it sorted. These will do the trick
Has a goat on the side which is great as BC don't send stickers with orders anymore, nor do they send free ones to Australia :( Tough, solid little drink bottle. Great for Ginger Wine when bushwalking, or as a mini hot water bottle when it gets really chilly.
Nicely built, solid and dry! The 1200 is big enough to fit my DSLR (D90) and a couple of lenses, and small enough to slide into my ww kayak. I have had this case submerged for over an hour when my boat got a trashed and not a drop of water. Trust Pelican cases when you need to keep something 100% dry.
Dead easy to use, and pretty soon you'll get the hang of slackin around. Great fun to take to a park and just muck about on, passer buys will be entertained and sometimes they'll even ask to have a go! Great way to make new friends. I've also used it with one of my outdoor recreation classes and they thought it was rad!
Really comfortable and super warm to boot! The 3/4 length legs had me thinking. but turns out they are great. They don't ride up or get annoyingly bunched under a drysuit. Two zips means it is easy to pee. If it's really cold (snow melt) i'll wear a extra layer or two under just to ensure I'm snug :) I'm 6'1" and 85 kg large is great
Dose the job nicely! If you have spent the big bucks on top notch gear you should give it a good clean with this wicked product from time to time! Foams up nicely and makes you shine :)
Damn fine stick that will give you years of love even if you give it years of abuse. the blade size lends itself nicely to a bit of everything. Supreme build quality and nice highly visible blades, means great for communicating on the river and you'll hopefully spot it if you 'misplace' it on the river.The blades deliver really nice clean catch and there is plenty of power behind them. All Werner products are top quality, so choose a paddle size that suits your needs and you will be happy! Just an extra note on longevity and durability. I've used my Sherpa on shallow rocky creeks for over 12 months and it is still going great guns. Plus I've had it stuck in a gnarly rock sieve for a few hours and it came out happy!
Sweet deck that will keep you nice and dry! fits tight and toasty, and the extra flap seals great. Also I've never had it implode on me, even on solid class IV V water it just stays on. But thanks to the fluro tab is easy to rip if things get a little untidy :) If you are planning on doing alot of x rescues maybe consider something with a kevlar edging for extra durability.
Amazing product from Werner, strong, powerful and super stiff! I also use a Sherpa and this paddle has noticeably stiffer blades. I was a little concerned about the durability of the foam core blades, but I've used this paddle on some gnarly shallow, rocky creeks and it is going great guns. Few scratches but hasn't lost any size as of yet.
Only downside is the jet black colour, makes it hard to find if you lose it in the river, and for signalling to other paddlers it can sometimes be a little hard to spot. Easy fixed though with some bright tape or stickers :)
