Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Who would have thought that one day the large cog would be bigger than your brake rotor. I was skeptical of 1x for a long time but riding it on a long bikepack in Baja made me a believer. The jumps between gears are a bit big in some cases but the shifting is smooth and the low end gearing is great for hauling a loaded bike up long mountain passes

I used this shoe on a 300 mile Baja bikepack. The sole is stiff enough for good power transfer but also flexible enough for when walking around looking for Pacifico and fish tacos. The laces held my feet secure and the mess was great when the temps climbed.

I admit it, I am lucky and spoiled. I own a drift boat and spend most of my fishing days in it. I don't alway wade fish but when I do I like to walk aways. These boots do both really well. Whether it is jumping over the gunnel 100 times a day to fish riffles, man to oars or an extended walk to quite waters. Light weight, comfortable with just the right amount of support. My running shoe size is a US 8.5 and I purchased US 9. A little tight for winter fishing with thick socks and waders but just right for summer wet wading.

When the blue wings start coming off on that snowy April day on the Green, you don't want to have to row off because you are wet and cold. You pull out your Simms Pro Dry Gore Tex jacket and start bringing fish to the boat. This jacket rivals the best ski jackets out there but is made for fishing with large pockets for fly boxes and waterproof cuffs. You don't need to use this jacket often but when you do it is nice to know you won't have to stop fishing.

Who would have thought to attach the baggies to a pair of bibs. Those guys/gals at Gore that is who. I love wearing bibs and I also wear baggies but sometimes the baggies slide down. These are sewn in a couple of strategic place to keep the baggies in place. Nice chamois and baggie short. The only reason I didn't give them 5 stars is the baggie legs are a little tight on me and ride up otherwise they are great.

Knee warmers will never garner the raves that a good pair of shorts gets. They do their job, keep you knees warm, and don't draw too much attention to themselves. That is what is great about the Giro Thermal knee warmers. They protect you knees when the temps drop, feel good on the inside and stay in place. The fabric resists snagging and tearing which is good when you are flying down your favorite singletrack.

I was a little apprehensive to purchase another pair of Hokas after my first pair wore out so fast but I am glad I purchased the Speedgoats. Light weight and just the right amount of cushion. The mesh uppers keep you feet cool in the summer.

This pad is really light for the amount of night time comfort you get. I thought it would be cold with no insulation inside but it is not. I haven't used it below 40 degrees though. I thought the pillow was a gimmick but it is nice. The foot pump allows you to inflate it without putting down your cocktail or run out of breath. I am a little suspect of the light weight fabric but so far no issues.
