My Favorite Piece of Outdoor Gear

I, like all of you, have countless amounts of cool outdoor gear. When asked to consider my favorite piece of outdoor gear that I have, I really had to think about it. I love my Grandt fishing rods, my Shimano and Abu Garcia reels, tons of lures, my Columbia outerwear, and the list goes on and on. Once I really thought it about it though, I realized that there is one thing that goes with me everywhere. It doesn't matter if I'm driving through some scenic mountain roads, fishing, or going on a walk with my wife. That one faithful piece of equipment is my favorite pair of sunglasses.

Aside from their sexy carbon fiber frames and polarized lenses, they have seen just about everything that I have seen. They filter the light to give me the best view of anything that I am looking at. Because of these glasses, I can see deeper in to any body of water than I ever could with my naked eyes. Everything I look at is crisp, clear, and so well defined.

When I think back, I am reminded of some amazing sites that I have shared with them like the awe inspiring rocky mountains, the grand canyon, the national monuments in Washington D.C., huge muskies, and countless bass. With that said, one of the best views I that have ever shared with these glasses is my wife's smile. It's amazing to think that a pair of glasses has shared so much with me. The future is looking bright as well. With our first child on the way, I am sure these glasses will share in the views of him or her as well.

If you don't have a pair of these, you are truly missing out

  1. Very cool and now that I think about it, I don't go anywhere without my sunglasses either. I can't imagine going fly fishing without my x-ray vision =)
    Thank you for sharing and I especially liked the part about your wife. Well said!

  2. Congrats on the successful spawn. The most overlooked piece of equipment untill you forget them. A friend calls them "magic glasses".

  3. Great Post! I feel the same way about a pair of "Costas" I have. It truly doesn't matter if I am heading to field, water, office, on the town, or to the church -- these are always with me. I really enjoyed this read - I can relate.

  4. As John mentioned, congratulations on the "new" little angler to come! Good sunglasses are a blessing. Like a good rod, make sure you think about what you want them to do before you invest hard earned dollars. Quality is of importance.
