William K's Bio

Born in Oklahoma, educated in Colorado, and have fallen completely in love with Utah. Salt Lake is an incredible city (small big city, which I prefer!), with ridiculous proximity to outdoor everything! I fish 100+ days a year, ski 50+ days a year, and have a smile on my face almost at all times. I love life, work hard, and have fun.

I bought this as a gift for my mother, and she absolutely loves it. She lives in Oklahoma, where the weather is fairly moderate, however there are times when the cold is bone chilling. She swears by this jacket during those times, and in many others. As far as comfort goes, you absolutely cannot beat this jacket, it's almost not fair. You don't feel like you're wearing anything at all, but somehow you stay warm, it's great. Great product that will last the test of time!

These boots for my girlfriend have been a hit - she loves them! They are great for her year round, she wears them with jeans, skirts, shorts - it doesn't matter - she always looks great in them and gets complements all the time on them. This is the first truly nice pair of boots she's owned and swears by them. The comfort and fit is there for her as well as the fashion of them. After these, she is never going to back to fake leather boots. The girl in your life needs these.

The BD Skylight Footprint is an awesome piece of gear to have if you own (or are getting) the BD Skylight tent (a great tent in-and-of itself - also highly recommended). It does what footprints are supposed to do - keeps the tent floor off the ground and protects it from getting ripped or pooling water below the tent - and it does it well. Also makes a great tarp when in a pinch, just big enough to sit under and keep you protected from the sun or a brief downpour.

The original Buff is great for all seasons - a nice, lightweight
covering for skiing when you need to keep the chill off your face as well as an awesome piece of gear for summer hiking to keep the sun off your neck, cool you down when soaked in water or as an impromptu headband for those super sweaty days. A must have.

I wear this thing all the time...it's almost ridiculous. It breathes relatively well and is the most comfortable piece of clothing in my closet. The fit is loose, but that's the intention. I bought a large and it fits great...still a bit loose, but doesn't bother me a bit.

I purchased a drift boat over a year ago and needed to replace the oar locks that came with the boat. I chose to go with these, and they serve their purpose very well. They're strong, reliable, and thin. The last thing you want to think about when rowing through big'ish water is having an issue with an oar lock. Hard to beat for the price.

Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

Bought this helmet as a gift, and returned it due to compatibility with the goggles we wanted to use. With that said, this helmet is super light, loved the color we purchased Metallic Hammer, and the fit of the helmet itself was great! The only reason for returning it was due to compatibility issues with the goggles we wanted to use, that's it. Great helmet, just didn't work out for us this time.

Not all buffs are the same...but then again they're not terribly different either. I classify buffs in two categories, good and bad. I don't like thick buffs, tight buffs, or buffs with air holes in them. This buff fits all my criteria for being the perfect one. Super comfortable, very thin, and breathes well.. I love it. I fish and ski in this buff on a regular basis and have nothing bad to say about it.

I bought this shirt as a gift for a family member, who had specific intended use...fishing sun up to sun down, for 10 days straight, in South America. Upon his return, he said he didn't take this shirt off (actually that's a lie, because he had two, but had one on at all times!). He couldn't stop talking about how comfortable it was for hours on end, and how it wasn't too hot in the heat of the day. You can't put on enough sunscreen for a trip like that, so wearing a layer for protection was the way to go, and he sure was stoked to have this shirt with him. He talked so highly of it, I just bought one for myself, ha.

I've owned multiple pairs of Shwood sunglasses, but these are by far my favorite. One of the main reasons is that they are sturdy, durable. I'm not a guy that likes to use sunglasses per application...meaning I don't like or want a pair of sunny's to drive in, a different pair to golf in, etc... I like one pair that does everything, which means they need to be tough, and these sunglasses meet this criteria. They look slick, fit extremely well and are super comfortable, and I've had tons of compliments on these. Definitely recommend these to someone who wants an affordable, but yet fashionable all around great pair of sunglasses.

I bought this as a gift to a buddy at work expecting, and it turned out to quite possibly be the most fun gift I've ever had the chance of gifting someone. I cannot wait until I see my buddies little one ripping around on this thing...I'll post pictures when the day comes!!

This helmet is comfortable, well ventilated, low profile, and looks badass. Unfortunately, I bought this helmet two weeks before a season ending injury, but with that said I had the chance to ski roughly 10 days in it at Alta, Snowbird, Solitude, and Jackson Hole. Each time of use I was extremely impressed by how comfortable it was, literally out of the box it fit perfect. I paired this helmet with the Smith IO/7 goggles, and found it was the perfect marriage between helmet and goggle. Obviously, your chance at finding a helmet and goggle to be compatible greatly increases when you go with the same brand (Smith in my case), but I didn't think it would work as well as they did.

I've worn helmets for the last 15 years of my life, and this is by far my favorite. Highly highly recommend this to anyone in the market.

These goggles are, by far, the best I've ever had the chance to wear. After asking some folks at work which goggles I should purchase, the unanimous response was the Smith IO/7...and I mean unanimous. Can't be the total viewing capacity, comfort, and compatibility (especially with a Smith helmet...I own the Variance). The low light lens that came with my goggles is so bright that I have trouble wearing them even on the lowest of light days, but the standard red lens actually does extremely well in low light. Obviously, the red lens also is money on bright days, so I use it for my everyday lens. I'm curious if I'll actually use my low light lens...I'll report back if I do. to anyone looking for an all around banger pair of goggles, these are them.

I received this rambler as a gift for Christmas, and I now swear by it. This rambler will keep ice all day, will keep coffee warm/hot for hours on end, and it's as durable as they come. I even pulled out of my driveway with it on top of my car, started driving, and watched it roll off my hood, onto the street, and bounce along until it hit a curb. Couldn't believe my eyes when I picked it up and it was completely fine, minus one small scratch on the bottom...even the lid was good to go! I highly recommend this product to anyone that was a daily rambler that is good for literally everything.

I have two of these, one on a 4wt where I throw dries and nymphs, and the other on a 7wt which I use specifically for throwing big bugs. Both perform extremely well, especially with sizable fish on the other end of the line. The drag is very simple to adjust, the reel is the most sound that I've gotten my hands on (period), and looks sexy as well. In the end, this thing is bombproof and I've talked many anglers into purchasing this reel. Absolutely has my seal of approval.

From the gift recipient:
Very cute case! I love the detail on the back and the wood is very smooth. The edges are slightly ?grippy? so it holds well and if you were to put the phone face down on a table, the screen does not touch the table. That was a major bonus for me. I have only dropped my phone once with this case and no damage at all. Seems like the case fits real nice and tight. Love it!

Fit: Runs large

From the gift recipient:
Run a little large and baggy in the crotch. Had to return. Recommend sizing down in these bottoms. They’d probably better fit someone with longer legs. (I’m only 5’3” and size small were a bit baggy) Very comfortable material though!
