I use this line for small stream fishing with a fiberglass fly rods like the Redington Butterstick or Echo Glass. It is great for those tight streams where you expect to fish in the 10-30 ft range. If you are going to bomb out 50 ft casts at a lake or wide open river I might pick something else.

I'm not convinced this shape is the best, and it doesn't seem nearly as durable as the traditional 5 gallon water carriers everyone uses camping, but I do like how small it packs down. It might be good for a river trip where space is at a premium and you need to filter river water for drinking.

Backing is great to add some diameter to your reel, especially on older reel models with a very skinny center. This helps line retrieve speed as every turn equates to more line distance. I'm also a fan of adding backing to all reels, even small stream reels as getting spooled would be a major bummer. I don't get taken into my backing often, but am always glad to have it.

I was trying to use a tarp for my Halo 6 but with a dog, and the habit of keeping shoes on in a tent now that I have a baby and am always in and out meant that the tarp wasn't enough. The tarp didn't fit exactly and also tended to cause water to collect and pool up. This is a much better alternative and will cause your pricey tent to last years longer.

I love filling growlers, even if in Utah that means 3.2% alcohol beer. I stopped bringing glass growlers camping because they weren't very convenient and filled up the cooler fairly quickly. This is a great, durable, convenient solution. It keeps beer cool and saves cooler space for food. I like it so much I bought one for a friend as a wedding gift.

There is a reason all the reviews are employees, and that the office is full of Stoic button downs- they are great shirts at a fraction of the price of alternatives. Stoic continues to update their line to be relevant and I'm a fan of this shirt.

I love this bag. It's at home on camping trips, airline flights and everything in between. They are versatile, tough, stylish and functional. I have them in every size from a small one to carry my computer to work, all the way up to the massive size that I use to carry tons of fishing and camping gear.

These are really nice pants with nice materials and some stretch. I liked the fit through the legs as it wasn't full on skinny jeans, but for me the waist was too tight to be comfortable. I ordered my normal waist size and was disappointed.

I've been using these gloves ski touring for a few years now and am a big fan. I really like the big pull tab, that makes pulling them on and off easy, which is great while transitioning. I am a split-boarder and have some hardware I need to fiddle with at the top and bottom. I also appreciate the extra layer on the palm, that keep them dry if I pick up my poles after dropping them in the snow. My only gripe is that I wish they fit under the ski gloves I use for downhill, these are just a bit too thick to slide under them.

Overall they are comfortable and warm, even for weekend long yurt trips.

This thing is a blast. I've got an entire splitboard setup and way too many gadgets, and what I love about this is I can hike my local hill in jeans, and the only gear I need is a pair of gloves. It's definitely not recommended for hardpack or resort riding, but works great for powder.
