These are hands down the best men's boxers on the market that you can buy. On a scale of 1 to 10, 10 being super comfortable and 1 being the sad life of chaffing and adjusting all the time. These are like a 12. And we've got them in a 2 pack!! That's 2 times the comfort!

These shoes are super light, easily pack-able, they dry fast and they stick to slick surfaces like no other! Not the best for wading in rivers while trying to fish though! Probably want to get something with more ankle support like the Rasslers or TR1 Junctions. For rafting/kayaking and boating though... these babies are prime!

The wire tube brush worked great on my reservoir! Its a pain to make sure the tubing is clean and that brush scrubbed it out with ease! The package only comes with 1 cleaning tablet though so purchase the big pack if you need more! The Bottle Bright tablets are freaking awesome though! If you have any kind of bottle, reservoir, coffee mug, whatever you have container wise for drinking, these tablets will clean them out entirely. Not even a smell left over from whatever used to be in your container!

I've tried a couple different merino boxers and even some forms of mesh boxers but these babies take the cake! They turned the comfort level all the way up with these boxers, chaffing is literally a thing of the past! Not to mention the Viscose fabric stretches, wicks away moisture and breathes really well.

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

I needed a one person tent for a camping trip with some friends and borrowed one of these from my buddy. Needless to say this tent blew my mind! Super light, easy set up, insane amount of space for a one person tent and the rain fly kept the elements out with space to leave my wet boots outside under the vestibule! I bought one for my future backpacking trips after I got back that weekend because I was so impressed!

If you have any questions about this tent give me a call or email me! I'm a gearhead here at backcountry!

Took the 10L version of this on a 5 day river trip on the yampa for my day pack and it worked like a charm! The purge valve made it easy to get the bag down as small and as tight as possible with zero leakage! Simple and easy but very durable dry bag

Awesome sunglasses!

I've got the Jade Iridium lenses and I freakin love these shades! The style looks kind of small on the site but they fit really well for medium to large faces! I eventually picked up a polarized pair for fishing and I'm happy I did! Clarity is incredible! If you want a great, good looking pair of sunglasses, check these out. If you want a bit more clarity, its worth it to get the Polarized versions! Here's a pic of me on the lake fishing with them!

This shirt is fantastic! The super fine merino wool that icebreaker insists on having with their clothing is incredibly soft, breatheable, and moisture wicking. The nylon weave they use with the merino wool makes it much more durable than a normal pure merino wool shirt that will lose its shape over time, sort of droop on your body, and eventually just fall apart. These shirts also don't stink if you're taking them out on the trail! Great cut and fit as well. I used to wear cotton blend t shirts but now I'm stocking up on these merino wool tech shirts! They are next level!

I took this bag out camping in the Uintas just recently and got caught in the rain when I wasn't prepared for it, forecast showed sunny skies but Utah weather is never certain! I was out fishing and had left my tent with the rain fly off. So when I got back to my camp (after sprinting through the woods with my fishing gear) all of my equipment was soaked except for my sleeping bag that was about half soaked through (Glad this thing had a DWR treatment) but it was still wet and i was getting ready to enjoy myself a cold, wet night! But I did have a break in the storm with about 30 minutes of sun, I laid the bag out in the sun to dry hoping it would dry up a bit at least. The bag was completely dry by the time the rain came back! Blew my mind! Definitely a great bag. It's a mummy bag though! So it will be a bit tight, Just a heads up!

My dad and I have always been fans of Astral PFDs in the past but when I found out they made shoes as well, bought a pair of these for my dad for his birthday! I asked him how he liked them and the old river rat freakin' loves them!! He already wears them on a daily basis just as a normal shoe which works for him because he calls himself an "urban fisherman". So he can still go fish at his favorite spots in town and still be able to have dry shoes in 30-45 minutes after fishing for whatever else he wants to go do! All in all, these shoes are great! You can take them on the town, trail, river, boat, basically where ever! The rubber is super sticky, they have great support and the fit is true to size! I definitely suggest getting a pair!

If it it wasn't for the super comfy foot beds and support on these shoes, I'd probably forget that I'm wearing them! Super light and almost drive me to run farther just with how the shoe is formed! Definitely suggest trying a pair of these! They are amazing!!

Got these pants for my dad for christmas and he loves them! He hates having too many pockets and wanted something that had insulation but not too much, and was durable. My dad was stoked about these pants! Nothing but good things to say! Except for the cargo pocket is at a weird angle if you are trying to get into it on the chair lift!
