If you're a fan of baggu and the circle purse style then you will really like this one. Its a little bit smaller than the leather version - not quite as many pockets or space on the inside but I can still get my phone, keys, and a few other items in there no problem. I adjusted the length of the strap by tying a small knot on the inside of the grommet.

The Sage Motive packs a serious punch for the price. It is fast, very fast, without reaching the quickness of the Method. Fast enough to cut well enough through winds while saltwater fishing for me. I have this rod in both a seven and a nine weight rod. It does everything I want from freshwater trout & bass fishing to primarily salt water Seatrout and red fishing. A windy day is no match for either rod weight, and for the price of this rig, I don’t think this type of performance can be beat. It is remarkably easy to cast, even though it is quite fast. I wouldn’t recommend this rod specifically for beginner fly fisherman given its speed, but definitely intermediate and advanced fisherman would find a friend in this rod. It is very casting friendly and will cut right through a headwind to put the fly where you want it, which is a big deal with saltwater fishing. Lastly, Sage’s warranty speaks for itself. Would order this again without a doubt.

I recently purchased a Lamson Litespeed Micra 5 and cannot say enough about this reel. I used the original lightspeed reel for a three weight rod that I learned to fish with, and absolutely fell in love. I love this option just as much, only for a different purpose. The original lightspeed is excellent for smaller fishing and closer casting, such as small trout and streams, as it has a much smaller spool diameter. I ordered this reel for a nine weight sage rod, and it is the absolute perfect tool for saltwater fishing for redfish and other larger game fish. With a larger spool diameter, faster retrieve rate, it’s easier to land larger fish that can put you to the backing quickly. As always, Lamson‘s smooth drag. Lastly, the coating on this reel will last a lifetime if taken care of. I use my gear (beat my gear to oblivion) and this thing has held up nicely just as my other Lamson reels. Would absolutely order again and will order one of these for my seven weight rod. Smaller stream fishing and smaller weight rods I will probably stick to my original litespeed, but that’s preference only. This reel will do what you need it to do.

I can carry 3L of water in my reservoir, plenty of snacks, a rain shell or jacket in my bag, and a camera too. It has two pockets on the hip straps that fit my cell phone, lip balm, and other odds and ends. The stash pocket up top is super convenient and roomy, as well as the mesh zippered pocket on the inside of the bag - which you can also clip your keys into. The shoulder straps are adjustable and distribute the weight nicely. This is like a micro version of my Osprey backpacking bag. Lots of thoughtful storage and accessibility options

After trying on many packs I landed on the Ariel. The waist straps hug just enough and aren't as stiff as other packs to get around your body. The anti gravity system really seems to to distribute the weight on your back properly and the mesh keeps you dry. Lots of nice storage solutions including the sleeping bag compartment. The best thing about this bag, besides the fit, is the versatility. The removable day lid is my day hike bag - its the perfect size and even has a spot for a bladder. Ive only used used the full bag once on a ten mile hike and I stayed comfortable the entire trip. Definitely looking forward to using it more. I am 5'4, 120ish and ordered a size small

Finally! A merino wool thermal with a modern fit and is also very comfortable, form fitting and extra long. Ive worn this on a backpacking trip in winter conditions and on the couch while watching a movie. Its a versatile piece for any outdoor lady

Good support in the arch with extra cushion on the toe and heel. These feel more like a midweight sock instead of lightweight. Ive hiked with these in the snow as well as in the desert - my feet stayed very warm in both instances. I don't think I will reach for these in the summer time but other than that these are a solid pair of hiking socks.

These shoes don't seem to need a break in period. Ive worn these on long hikes without getting any blisters. This is my first pair of shoes with vibram and its so good and so sticky. I took the advice of the other reviewers and sized down. Im usually a size 8 and a 7.5 fit just right. These are quite stiff but it translates to the feel of durability and support.
