  • Gear we wish existed

    What piece of gear do you wish you had, but are fairly sure it doesn't exist?

    I'll start:

    HH Impertech waist-length jacket. Cut and fit similar to a Simms guide jacket. For my uses, the current Impertech jacket is too long for wade fishing - it drags in the water when I wade deep.

    Kinda fits the bill for what youre looking for. I ordered one awhile back, but havent tried it on yet to see how it fits. (im in South Korea for the next few months ) if i feel it is a lil too long, ill take it to the alterations place and have an adjustable elastic cord put at the bottom so i can tighten it around my waist. anyhow, hope this helps. this thread should be a big hit. i like it anyhow haha!

      camcorder case

      Last year I was looking for a soft padded waterproof case for my new video camera. After extensive searching, and even talking to a couple companies who make waterproof bags I realized there was no such animal. So I just made one myself for the cost of a blue foam sleeping pad and an OR waterproof stuff sack.

        I always thought this would be cool -

        typical mid-weight hiking type boots that is waterproof - ok that exists, but these boots have a special feature.

        A very thin packable membrane built into the boot and rolled into the cuff. You unsnap a little flap, roll up the 'wader' membrane to hip boot height and wade across a stream. Get to the other side, roll the wader back down snap it into the cuff and proceed. With minimal time, effort, or forethought to packing waders and of course no wet or cold feet.

        Glacier socks are about what is out there and they do the job, but are more bulky and require taking the pack off and putting them on...besides a material thin enough to pack down into a boot cuff without being too bulky when stowed probably isn't out there.

          You can put this one in the impossible category...

          I hate that I have a whole storage tub dedicated to nothing but clothing. Base layers, Mid layers, rain gear, warm weather, cold weather, east coast deer clothing, etc. It would be nice to have one set of clothes that can change depending on the weather, and digital camo that can change depending on the area of the country you are hunting and type of game you are pursuing. That would be nice!

            Fog "polarizing" lenses...

            Eyewear you slip on that cuts the fog the same way polarized lenses cut the glare. Imagine...

            "Aha! There's the _________ !"

            a). trail!
            b). bull!, ram!, boar!, buck!...
            c). reef!!!

              High quality and fast drying hiking pants for people 6'6" and 300+ lbs. I actually wear my blue jeans around camp on float trips as I can't find anything else that will fit.

                    not exactly freeze dried but close

                    Looks like this fellow is on the right track.....looks interesting!

                    Beer concentrate + appropriate amount of water + mini carbonator = beer in your nalgene bottle.

                    Wonder if it really works?

                        WHAT!


                        Has anyone tried this? Review please.

                        I honestly never thought the day would come.

                          I would like to see

                          a floating backpack! You could load it up with 60 pounds of gear and it would just float along behind you, wherever you went.

                          That and lightweight raingear, that keeps you dry, wicks sweat away from you and doesn't tear on brush,

                              We would have reached this benchmark in human progress a century ago, had Thomas Edison been an avid outdoorsman.
