Favorite New Piece of Gear

It's the holiday season and I've been doing a lot of shopping and still need some last minute items. It's got me wondering what is all of your favorite new pieces of gear you use rafting?



I would say that my single favorite piece of gear in the last couple of years has been my Pacific River Bag that rides in the back cargo space on my raft and simplifies rigging. I just love it and can't imagine not having it. I do also love my goal zero yeti 150 that rides in my captains box and allows me to always charge up speakers, phones, gopros etc.


So what are some of your favorite things?

I got a new Selway groover before this last season and it's sooooo much nicer to clean and deal with than the old eco tank setup. I also love my NRS canyon box for a kitchen box. I finally have it dialed in and if I go car camping I just grab it n go, same with rafting.

My Woodland Power stove ( Blaster), that I got for an up and coming Grand trip.
The test run in my driveway, I turned it up full blast on a pot of ice water, big enough to make coffee for 14, in 20 degrees F. Hot in 8 minutes, frame was glowing red, and sounded like a jet fighter. God, I love this thing already!!!!
More Power!!

I love my "Everything bag" by Tuff River Stuff. It makes loading the boat so much faster and easier. I also have really been enjoying my Edge Oars. They are crazy light and seem to be pretty tough so far.

I second the "Everything bag", bomber way to rig your boat in 1/3 the time it takes everyone else.

Seek Outside Redcliff tent with SXL wood stove. Wish I wasn't hosting a Christmas party next weekend as I would like to be taking it out instead! It is the reason my boat is still on the trailer, half deflated and covered in snow.

These are just perfect for rafting, love having hot coffee or cold drinks all day long without opening cooler
