I'll be the first to admit - I'm tough on gear. I am a breaker of things, that's just the way it is. What this means for you is that I have been able to weed out a great many products that didn't quite stand the test of time. The products in the dropdown menu you can see by hovering your mouse over 'The Gear Review' tab are examples of gear that I have successfully used and abused for at least one entire season. Thanks for stopping by, and if you have any gear to suggest, please don't hesitate!
