Nikon surprised us this week with a new variant of last year's award winning Monarch HG 8x42 and 10x42 Binoculars. This newest Nikon binocular was announced almost out of nowhere, as Nikon had previously refrained from unveiling any new binocular models at this year's SHOT Show in Las Vegas.

The subject of this review is the Kestrel 5400 Heat Stress Tracker. It has the usual wind impeller (blades), and much, much more. In fact, the Kestrel 5400 can also measure the Thermal Work Limit. If you work outdoors, or have employees who do, this is one measurement you NEED to pay attention to!

At this year’s SHOT® show in Las Vegas, I wandered into the booth of Sitka Gear, a long-time favorite of mine. Sitka Gear has revolutionized the idea of “Turning Clothing into Gear®.” Their designers and engineers seem to pull the thoughts of hunters and outdoorsmen and women, and incorporate them into their clothing. The smallest details are considered and included in every aspect of their clothing, including the Sitka Gear Territory Pant that we'll look at today.

While the spinning reel choice makes a difference in the fishing experience, the spinning rod choice may be a more important piece of the puzzle to consider. Rods enable anglers to cast lures, work the lures, feel the strike, and retrieve the fish effectively.

For years, wading gear has always been considered primary equipment for fishing for cold water trout in the mountainous parts of the nation. Whether made of neoprene, PVC, or some other type of engineered fabric, anglers would rarely leave home without some sort of protective barrier to shield anglers from the chilly and wet conditions.
