I've been using VE paddles for around 3 years now and other competitors such as Werner, Select, Lettmann or AT seem inferior. I think VE have nailed the weight to surface area of the blades which allow you to transfer so much power into each stroke, making these paddles perfect for all disciplines of whitewater kayaking. I've never had any issues with durability either and would easily trust VE in any grade of whitewater. One of my favourite things about VE paddles is the fact that they are custom built to any feather, length or hand you could wish for(there's even a chart to tell you which size would be best for you depending on your height and discipline of paddling!) Also, there is an option to convert the paddles into either 2 or 4 way splits if need be. This is great if you're trying to space save for trips abroad or just as an emergency pair! Combinations of Carbon blades/shaft or Glass blades/shaft are available if you don't want to splash out on full carbon blades or want something a bit more durable.
This is one of my favorite watches, and one of the biggest reasons why is that it is an all purpose automatic! I absolutely hate when batteries run out, so I have now moved to automatic watches and they make everything so much easier. Sure you might have to re-set the time on your watch here and there, but its completely worth it not having to worry about the battery. This Kenneth Cole model is super slick, and can be used to dress up in or as you can see go on hikes with! Very unique face to this watch as well. I would suggest looking into any of their watches, usually pretty well done.
These weights may be the single best purchase I have ever made. I used to do P90X Plus, so this is where I was originally introduced to them. Always moving and in different places, not knowing if I will be close to a gym, I had to get them. They work exactly how you see them. You turn the dial on both sides to the same weight, and just pull the weight out and its ready to use. I went with the 5lb to 52.5lb model, because it was all I needed. These weight ranges allow me to do everything from a solid upper body workout, to squats. If you're looking for a way to workout without leaving your house, and want a solution that takes up to no space at all, get these weights. You will never regret it, its like having a gym wherever you live.
