REVIEW: The North Face Ventrix Jacket

The North Face Ventrix is a jacket that caught my attention. The quick video describing the Ventrix system and how it vents excess heat during aerobic activity seemed like a really cool design technology that might come in handy here in Texas where it can get cold but not cold enough to stay indoors. About The North Face Ventrix TNF Continue Reading

REVIEW: Salty Scales Fishing Shirts

I love a good fishing shirt. My ideal shirt has UPF 50+, is soft with no seams that rub, no buttons, and has to be a long sleeve. If it’s got a cool design, that really adds to the appeal. A couple of months ago as I was discarding another delaminated fishing shirt I came across Salty Scales. They have Continue Reading

REVIEW: 13 Fishing Concept Z Baitcasting Reel

I first saw the Concept Z in person at a local tackle shop, Tightlines PFT in Killeen, last week. Having a review for the 13 Fishing Inception in the works I picked it up, gave the spool a spin, scoffed, and put it back down. I think the words I used immediately were, “That sucks. How are they going to Continue Reading

REVIEW: 13 Fishing Inception Baitcasting Reel

13 Fishing has been cranking out new rods and reels over the last couple of years of which I have reviewed quite a few. Walking through my local tackle shop a couple of weeks ago I picked up a 13 Fishing Inception reel and gave it a spin. The spool seemed to spin well, the drag seemed strong, and the Continue Reading

REVIEW: Plano Z Series Backpack

Plano made an interesting step into the kayak fishing world with the introduction of the soft side, V Series, and Z Series. Inside the Z Series was one of my favorite ways to organize my gear, a backpack. The Plano Z Series Backpack caught my attention because it was waterproof and came equipped with four Plano 3700 boxes. I went down Continue Reading

REVIEW: YETI Panga 50 Submersible Pack

Ever had a need for your suitcase to be waterproof? Ever needed to store camera equipment on a boat or raft? I have unfortunately needed both of those things which made the YETI Panga an intriguing accessory for outdoor adventures. I’ve killed a few cameras in kayaks and rafts over the years which isn’t cheap. YETI took the common dry Continue Reading

Cooler weather is here and just in time for the cold water kayaking days is the newest kayak from Ascend, the Ascend H10 which is due out soon. The Ascend H10 hybrid sit in/on kayak is a scupperless kayak that takes great features from canoes and kayaks and blends them together. The Ascend H10 is the little brother to the Continue Reading

REVIEW: Napier Sportz Truck Tent

If you’ve ever fished tournaments, taken a long trip to go fish, or just wanted to save some dollars on lodging, you’ve probably thought about tent camping. One of my least favorite things about tent camping is being on the ground, and no large, flat surfaces to put the tent. Paying for spaces can be a little better but rarely. I’ve Continue Reading
