As an Outdoor Industry Professional, I’m often asked what products I recommend and use on a daily basis. The products I personally use are put to work in all types of outdoor and aqautic conditions . I personally test products and if they perform , look cool , taste good , feel good , fit well etc. Then I contact the company directly . Then if the people are as good as the products I proceed on building a long term relationship. That has been my process for 20 years . Kialoa Paddles and Mizu are great examples !
