George Washington Sears, aka Nessmuk, wrote in the 1800s of the outdoors that, "We do not go to the green woods and crystal waters to rough it. We go to smooth it." That’s as true now as ever. The outdoors are for refreshing the soul and lifting the spirit.

Try convincing yourself of that – or better yet, your spouse, children or friends – when their feet are cold, their line is tangled, their sleeping bag is soggy, or their paddle is broken. Having the right gear can make all the difference.
