A straight shooter. Around a campfire, this flask serves up a straight shot of your favorite spirit. Made with odorless and tasteless stainless steel, the interior won't mix good whiskey with the aroma of last month's Jager mistake. The slim profile slides flat into a pocket for discretion, and an engravable base provides room for a few words ? for those occasions that require more than a toast.
Quick on the water and roomy in the cockpit, the Wilderness Systems Tsunami 145 Kayak is the ideal balance of comfort and efficiency, and now has the added benefit of a drop-down rudder. Inherent Wilderness Systems stability is evident as the multi-chined hull keeps this boat on an even keel while whether the wind stirs up swells or you're trying to turn on an edge. A touring hull design means the Tsunami slices through water with the speed and stealth of a multi-billion-dollar spy aircraft. The moderate V on the bottom offers outstanding initial tracking ability, and multiple chines create sidewall rigidity. Not only does this extend the life of your boat, but multi-chines enhance primary and secondary stability--tipping is tricky while tracking gets glorious. The BTS rudder takes this already-awesome tracking boat and converts it into a screaming arrow of directed speed, regardless of water conditions. In concert, the hull design and rudder let long-time paddlers and novices alike enjoy a stable touring platform. The Phase 3 AirPro Tour seat adjusts for a custom fit and can be tweaked mid-river to relieve fatigue following a full day of paddling. Finish off the perfect fit by adjusting the Keeper footbraces to find the perfect paw resting position for maximally powerful paddling. Three bulkheads offer storage galore for an extended tour, and the domed rubber covers offer some protection when the wind bring spray across the boat. On-deck rigging in front and in back puts the bare necessities at your fingertips.
