I'm super stoked on the new grip for these shoes. The Brewers are always my go to whitewater kayaking shoe because they're comfy, dry quickly, and are long lasting.

What I really appreciate about the 2.0 is the improved sole, which is great both for slippery rocks and loose or muddy terrain.

I've been using it for an extended road trip & it's proven perfect for 2 people. There's enough space to keep everything we want chilled, but doesn't take up too much room in the car!

Also, things stay exceptionally cold for an exceptionally long time!!

Love Werner Paddles! They are trustworthy & exceptionally durable!

I really like the Sherpa because the blade is a great size for mid-sized paddlers wanting good stroke power, but also a size easy enough to maintain a good stroke rate. I'm stoked on it for creeking, but it's great playboating as well!

Carbon is lightweight & long lasting! And, 30 degree offset is great happy medium for playboting & creek boating!

I use this PFD all the time for creeking, instruction, and playboating. It's super comfortable and has all the features necessary for a good rescue PFD. The Green Jacket is very durable & holds up for year under the abuse of sun & being shoved in the back of trucks. It also features a great front pocket for organizing all your snacks, sunscreen, earplugs, river knife, pin kit, and whatever else you might wish you had space for!

I've been wearing these shoes religiously for the past 4 months either whitewater kayaking or hiking. They are stand out for all outdoor activities! And despite the daily abuse, the shoes are holding up really well!!
They dry quickly... they are super comfortable & have great arch support. I've used them while backpacking a loaded kayak into a creek & they provided all the ankle & arch support I needed for long days on the trail. They also have great traction on loose dirt, mud, and slippery rocks!
I would highly recommend this shoe to anyone looking for a trail or water shoe... or a do it all outdoor shoe!!

Love these shoes!!! I purchased them for use mostly in water activities, but I've been using them a bunch on land AND in the water.
On the trail, they have great grip on mud, dirt, and rocks. They are extremely lightweight and offer great foot support so unintentionally they have quickly replaced my other trail shoes.
In the water they offer great traction on wet rocks and have proven to be super durable.
They dry really quickly & are exceptionally comfortable so I can use them all the time... kicking around town, running, and whitewater kayaking!

I use this paddle on a daily basis for river running, creeking, and playboating once in awhile. The blade shape is perfect for maximizing power per stroke. The mid-sized blade is good for mid-sized paddlers and use for the occasional playboating.

I've wedged this paddle between rocks, smacked it against cliff walls, and let it ride under a pile of gear in the back of a truck on the way to the put in. It's super durable and I trust it to not break when I need it most.

Also, small shaft is really nice!!

I want a river shoe that is sticky on slippery rocks, dries quickly, and has ankle support. I also want a trail shoe that is durable, lightweight, has good tread, arch support and is suitable for trail running and backpacking trips. I also don't want to look like a goon when I end up at the brewery after. Sounds like a lot to ask out of shoe, but is all well within the Aquanauts comfort zone!!<br ></article><br />STOKED!

Astral shoes are known for being versatile and the Bakers are no exception. I love that they're a simple slip-on shoe that still is durable, has great traction, and good arch support.

They easily slip on and off, so they're the first shoe I put on when running out the door.

Because they are lightweight and packable, the Bakers are always included as my camp shoe on overnight kayak and backpacking trips. Flipflops may seem like a great idea, but when you start scrambling around on rocks to explore or wash your dishes in the river, you're stoked to have a shoe with good tread that stays on your foot.

The Bakers also have enough support that I can wear them to work while waitressing for a full shift of running around at the restaurant and my feet don't hurt.

Love em

I've owned these shoes for a year and wear them almost everyday and they're still in great shape. Besides being exceptionally durable, I love how comfortable and functional these shoes are. They provide great ankle and arch support, but the soles are still flexible enough to feel the terrain and climb around. The soles are sticky and trustworthy. I wear the Rasslers with my drysuit. I've used them with bare feet. And, I've hiked in them with socks for hours carrying my kayak to a put-in. Best creek shoe out there. LOVE em! BAM!
