I fish a lot in the fall with my dog, and the only other people I run into are deer hunters wearing blaze orange. I figured this would help prevent my dog from being mistaken for a deer in the willows and brush around the river.

This is a small lock you can keep in your pocket and use to lock your board at lunch. It should slow down someone snagging your board off the ski rack while you are inside for 30 min. I wouldn't expect it to deter anyone who is seriously motivated or someone who has even hand tools.

I use the low cut men's slippers for cold days at the house and on yurt trips. I just bought these for several family members and wish I had bought this version for myself. It seems to solve the most annoying issue i have with mine where my foot occasionally slips out. They are very warm and the nonslip grip is great

I'm a big fan of these, they are durable enough to wear hiking through thick brush, but comfortable and stylish enough to wear around town. I've worn these in combination with gaiters grouse hunting and they far outperformed my old setup with generic hiking pants. I've also work these under waders, and while most pants bunch up or have pinch points along seams, these were comfortable.

I did find them a bit long but i have shorter legs.

This is is a solid boot we purchased for our 1 year old for snow days, but we didn't like that the side flap/slit went so low. It makes getting them on and off easy, but makes them less waterproof and snow proof than desired.

This was way bigger than expected, even though I had looked at the pictures others had submitted. This definitely takes 2 people to set up. It does what is advertised, and seems durable, I just think it is better suited to camping or beach days, when I had hoped to use it for summer concerts. It's just too large to bring to a crowded lawn.

I'm a Redington fanboy, I have 7 Redington rods and 5 reels. They perform, are durable, and are great value. Do you really want to spend double on a fly rod for a 5% improvement in performance?

I have the 7wt and have used it for stripers and stillwater trout. It casts heavy streamers and sinking lines just fine.

I originally bought these for striped bass and other saltwater species, but as normal overestimated how often I would get to the salt. I've been using these for smallmouth and largemouth bass, and they are great at turning over larger, wind-resistant flies.

This is a very versatile shoe. I wear it around the office when new, then I hike, camp, and run in them as they break in and get too dirty for office life. I don't buy any other running/hiking shoe. The drawcord is great for changing shoes, such as switching between climbing and belaying, or slipping off these to get into ski/snowboarding boots.

This is a great cup, and the goat logo is solid. One note- for some reason I had expecting the mouthpiece to be a soft plastic like a baby bottle nipple, while this is a hard plastic. I should've realized the product title was "toddler" not "baby" so this is going on my pile of stuff I bought before my 8 month old was ready to use it, along with a fly rod, powsurf, and swiss army knife.

I've been struggling to find pants that have a modern fit, but aren't restricting. These fell on the baggy side for me, and even got the dreaded "dad jeans" comment from my wife. I thought the fit was good through the waist and thigh, but then was too baggy down in the calves and ankles. I bought the Prana Bridger pant and am much happier. Prana pants are great, this just wasn't the fit I was looking for.

This shirt will work well for spring or fall in cooler weather. For some reason I expected this to be a light, cool summer shirt but it is definitely heavier and stiffer. Great for fall camping or evening drinks on the patio. Not recommended for dead of summer.

I find a lot of hiking socks overheat my feet, and are basically ski socks with different branding. These are the right cut, thickness and material. I've used these on hikes in hot weather, while using my waders, and around the house and they've worked well in all scenarios.
