Gear Guide 2012 Preview

Gear GuideOne of the exciting new products we tested for Gear Guide 2012 was Patagonia’s new River Crampons. These are similar the the old Korkers Wading Sandals in that you strap them over your wading boots and can  easily remove them at any time. These don’t have hard metal cleats though—the crampons have five soft aluminum bars on the bottom that stick to rock surfaces. (Also shown in this video are Rock Grip boots, which you can now get with the bars bolted right to the bottom. It’s exactly the same traction, but no on/off function.)

Gear Guide 2012 is on newsstands Nov. 22, 2011, and we review more than 100 products, everything from kayaks, saltwater rods, indicators and soft shell jackets.
