MaverIK II

rated 5 of 5 stars I use this kayak five days a week all summer long. I can't say enough good things about this boat! Sturdy, durable, comfortable, light, easy inflation, and on and on. I will admit it is on the expensive side, but I guarantee you are buying a kayak that will probably still be in good working order long after you have passed on. Full review


rated 3.5 of 5 stars Excellent product for getting into packrafting. Durable, easy to inflate, fine for short paddle trips away from roads. Too bulky to carry on a long backpacking trip. I'd been wanting to try packrafting, so when I found the NRS Packraft on clearance at REI, I picked it up.

Extreme SAR Drysuit

rated 5 of 5 stars I have been teaching swift water rescue and swift water boat operations since 1985. I have used this suit now for the last 7 years and it is always dry. Very rugged and dependable. There is not another drysuit that will compare if you REALLY use it in rugged environments and use it often. Buy smart the first time, folks! Full review

NFPA Rescue Throw Bag

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Will save a life if USED CORRECTLY. (Practice.) I used this bag in Swift Water Rescue training. Works well and is easy enough to throw. Keep in mind it has plenty of rope and requires a bit of strength to throw the full distance. I only managed to throw it the full 75 feet two or three times in a day practicing with it. It's easy to coil, but it's still 75 feet of rope. Use a partner to help speed things up when coiling the rope. I really liked that the victim's end of the rope has a flotation device… Full review
