Werner Sidekick - Gear Review. I have been paddling with these for a few years and now I have decided to write about them. The first pair I had lasted about 5 years. I then wore them out. I was so impressed with them that despite there being new things on the market such as the Werner Powerhouse I decided to stick with what I knew and bought a second set.
 
Following the Patagonia Spectacular we still have a number of samples on offer including some real choice pieces at excellent prices.

A Sea Kayaking Deck Bag that is perfect for transporting essential bits of equipment while out exploring the ocean. It is exceptionally easy to secure to the front of your Sea Kayak. This is done via the 4 securing straps that are located on each corner of the bag. There are then two velcro straps located on the base that give further security to the deck bag by them being threaded around the decklines of your kayak. On the top of the deck bag there is a set of elasticated straps that are ideal for securing items such as a map. On the front of the bag there is a zip that offers access to the inside of the deck bag. Internally when opened, you will see there is a drybag in there which offers perfect storage for maybe a camera of a mobile phone.
