Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The idol drysuit is great for kayakers. I was a little unsure about the middle zipper that can completely separate top from bottom but it's been great. It gives you the opportunity to just use the top on hotter days, or you can just use the bottoms as waders.
Kokatat is top of the game in regards to drysuits. They have the best warranty and will pressure leak test your drysuit free if you ever want to send it in.
Keep in mind the neck gasket will be very tight at first but breaks in with time.

The icon drysuit is great for kayakers and rafters. You'll find that the back entry zipper is easy to use and water tight. It doesn't interfere uncomfortably with the PFD.

First impression of this jug for me was how tough it's built. The stainless steel finish looks great and you can tell it's quality.
I like the magnet feature for the lid so you don't lose it while you're drinking.
Most importantly it keeps water cold forever, if you put in a little bit of ice, days! It also retains heat well but obviously not quite as long.

Keep the digits warm in the coldest of waters. Gloves come with a natural curl to them to make it slightly easier to grip the paddle

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Used this on a trip to Canada recently and was able to fit 3 pairs of skis plus some clothing with room to spare. I was even able to squeeze in a pair of 194cm slid into the 190 bag but it was a tight fit. Highly recommend this for someone not wanting to break the bank but needing something of good quality

Super rad poles with a cool color to show everyone your the best skiier on the mountain. the flicklock is annoying sometimes if you're like me and somehow randomly unlock it then lost the bottom of your pole on the way down. Probe feature is cool if you're in a pinch, but don't use it as a substitute to a full size probe.
