    I’m in for all of it. But especially that rope, I bet it ties boats to docks pretty well too.

    I’m game on all three. Sounds like an interesting test.

    I already own the mugs and wouldn’t mind another, they are awesome. The loop rope looks like a fine addition to the kayak arsonal. The water bottle would work around the office or on the water. so hard to choose with such a good line up.

    Would love to have my name in for both.

    Sign me up for both! A killer mug is always a favorite with me and that loop rope could be the perfect solution for my custom rod rack I made for my truck!
