You should also be able to return/exchange the Scheels ones without a receipt. My buddy does this almost annually.

I buy Cabelas and keep the box/receipt & exchange as needed.

Does anyone use bags for B2 goose decoys? I'm looking for 6 slot bags to carry them into fields and store them in. Any help would be appreciated

This one is easy.

Buy Cabelas brand. Save the receipt and box.

Cabelas footwear has a LIFETIME warranty. Even on waders.

Their 1600 super mags are golden.


ive seen some other reviews on these little mixed. some good some bad. told the wife I need 2 pair and she like didn't you just get yours last year said no year before. she just rolled her eyes




This one is easy too.

Tell her you need two pairs. She will roll her eyes. One for her and one for you.

That way when your boy gets older he can use hers.

:lol:

Not much thicker then a motorcross glove or maybe along the lines of a insulated mechanix glove.

I will snap a picture when I get home this morning.

They are overpriced but I bought a pair of under armor gloves from scheels - they have different thicknesses to pick from when I got them, I personally love them. not completely water proof but they are resistant. I have bad circulation in my fingers and typically stay pretty warm in them for how thick they are. they hold up to abuse great so far. Down side - under armor is way over priced thank God for gift cards!

Under Armout Outlet is the bomb. Discontinued or excess items sold at a discount. Typically free shipping.

I honestly looked at UA gloves but after getting a enduro style shell coat with WindStopper I was sold on that stuff. 50 degrees outside road to the gas station to fill up the street bike and I could feel wind resistance but no wind chill.

The rig em right XL6 bags fit the B2s perfect. Little pricey but they are well built. Had half a dozen fall off the truck going 65 and nothing happened to the decoys besides one head popping off. Popped the head back on and kept driving.

NERD!!!!!!















I like your style. Something to think about. I haven't bought a light pair that lasted more than a season in years. I have strangely long thumbs though so I think that's part of the issue.

These seem to be holding up as far as seams go, etc. I do notice they must have a bit of a pre curve built in as when my hands are resting they fit just right, but when I straighten out my fingers the material pulls and gets almost to tight. But I could just have hands that are to small for the next size and at the max range of whatever size these are. I'd guess mediums.

As for the nerd, well lets just say I was glad the wife wasn't around when I did that...she often thinks my great ideas are shall we say "stupid"

You can see on the first picture how the textured grippy stuff wore right off. That is my only real complaint.

You'll be lucky to get a pair to last longer than a weekend with the new pup running around lol.

For keeping it lightweight/legal on state lands, what is your guys opinion on these? Or their Mojo cousin.

Last one I tried needed a lot of wind or you got a one wing wonder.

Windducks work well, I think you can only get them off of the internet.

Every item you review on here is exactly what I am looking for. I need a couple bags for the mojos and couldn't decide but these look perfect.

This is for ice fishing, but we have to do something once the water turns hard:
Hard sided ice fishing rod holder off Amazon for $38. Plastic feels like it could be stronger, but it'll be better than my soft sided one that I currently have which barely holds 2 rods.
