    Re: Over and underrated gear

    Under-rated - liner/compression socks. I typically use them religiously and they are not really noticed, a pain to put on, but otherwise easily ignored or forgotten about. But any time I actually do forget them I spend the trip bleeding, blistered and sore and spend every step thinking about those damn socks sitting at home in a drawer.

    Over-rated - craft beer. There are too many of these things in the liquor store now. Most times I go into a liquor store and don't recognize the vast majority of the selection. I don't know how many times I've gotten back to the van, ready to enjoy a tasty beer after a hard hike and it turns out the craft beer I thought I'd try for the first time is some hipsters impression of what a beer should taste like. But really its just bad beer disguised as craft.

    Underrated - Bino adapter for tripod. Glassing from a tripod is a game changer.

    Overrated - Most hunting brand targeted clothing. I own some Sitka and Kuiu pieces and they are great items but you can get just as good quality in the hiking/mountaineering section of VP or stores alike.

    Underrated- Sunlight dish detergent on my optics, it keeps them fog free. Overrated - commercial fog free wipes. I missed an opportunity on a great 4 pt whitetail this year because of wipes not working.

    Under rated - Bino packs! What a game changer. I agree with the comment on bino adapters for tri-pods. Makes a huge difference.

    Covered bino harness. Just started using one this year. Keeps the binos clean and dry. Tuck a few extra goodies in if you like.
