After going through the pouring rain and high winds at GS5 I feel compelled to write a review of my Tentcot I bought from Cabela's. 

http://www.cabelas.com/dome-backpacking-tents-cabelas-deluxe-tent-cot-2.shtml

I was comfortable, warm, and most importantly, I stayed DRY!  After sleeping in the passenger seat of my truck in the parking lot of HMB Kayaks on the night of the crab opener, I wanted something better.  Cause I froze my butt off and was uncomfortable all night!  If ya dont know, you cant put up a tent in the parking lot there, but I can put up the Tentcot in the bed of my truck! 
The Tentcot unfolds and sets up in probably less than 3 minutes and packs up in about the same amount of time.  My only gripe with it is condensation can build up pretty heavily on the inside if you have all the windows zipped up.  But sleeping off the ground and staying dry in pouring rain is awesome!   :smt006 :smt007 :smt003

X2....I have a slightly different model. But man best nights sleep camping ever at GS5. I even had complaints that I snored. AND I slept so sound I have dreams on the 2nd and 3rd nights. I was warm and bone dry!

I got one of these last year after the ceramic?, whatever the rod guide on a Trevala is made of, was cracked the first time I went to use it. The rod was replaced under warranty, I think it was broke before I even bought it cause I didn't look super close at all the guides and it wasn't very noticeable, and I bought one of these to protect the guides on my new rod. A year later now and I'm bringing more & more rods with me all the time. Sometimes the lines get tangled on the ride home so I just picked up a couple more. The 'spinning' model size works great for the 6'6" Trevalas and also my 6' Shimano spinning rods. When I was first looking at them the sales guy tried to put the 'casting' model over the Trevala but it was too tight and ripped the rod wrap. I have never had that problem with my 'spinning' size. jim

REI MESH BAG  (ekstraaa laaaage)

Been using this mesh bag for storing all my yak fishing gear for a few years now. The mesh keeps the stench and the mold from settling after a trip on the water. On my last trip to Veterans Memorial camp ground (last weekend), the mist was so heavy that I could not pack my tent coz it was soaking wet. I ended up stuffing it in my mesh bag and left it at the back of my truck bed as I made my way home. Tent was dry by the time I got home and I'm a happy camper  :smt002

*I can fit my PFD, high back kayak seat, net, hog trough ruler, wet suit, waders, gaff, game clip, booties with room to spare...

Gear:  Kokatat TROPOS Tempest Jacket  and Tempest Pant with sock

It has been awhile but back when (http://www.norcalkayakanglers.com/index.php/topic,22430.0.html) I went overboard and end up getting water inside my pants and my base layer pants got wet.  So if you get these make sure you secure the pants and the jacket real good before heading out.

I don't often fish in conditions that warrant a helmet, but I did recently spend a weekend wearing my surfing brain bucket and thought I would put in a good word for the Pro-Tec Ace water helmet with a Salamander visor accessory. A very comfortable helmet, and the visor shaded almost my entire face, which was nice since we were in the sun for much of the day. Here's snapshot, and you can see how well the visor works.

Wear this under your splash jacket and you are good to go  :smt045 :smt023

* I have both but prefer the Themo X over the Mysterioso. IMO, the Thermo X is a little thicker thus provides more warmth to it. (perfect also as a base layer for snowboarding, skiing or motorcycle rides in the winter)
