In this installment of the Live Your Adventure Gear Report, Eddie Bauer Sport Shop guide Andrew Bennett breaks down the new Adventurer® Boat Bag and explains why it rates as the best boat bag he’s ever used. But Bennett was more than just a fan of and a tester for our latest piece of Sport Shop gear, his expertise was behind the entire way this bag was built. For those who need a recap on the process that built the new Sport Shop fishing line, we’ve attached a recap below. —LYA Editor
Our brand was built on fishing. But to bring our brand back to the rivers, lakes, and streams took a determined development effort and the knowledge of a crew of fishing guides who lived in those environments.
We knew materials, we knew down—they knew long days on the Methow stalking steelhead. We knew how to construct weatherproof shells—they knew the constant drizzle of the Dean River, Puget Sound, and the Olympic Peninsula. We knew wicking—they knew the heat of flats fishing the Bahamas and the Keys. We knew how to integrate guide feedback into a final product—they knew how to provide unfiltered details on what they needed. We knew how to listen—and man, they knew how to talk about fishing.
The result of this constant feedback loop resulted in our Sport Shop fishing line. It was a familiar template for our brand. It was the same process that enabled our climbing and mountaineering team to build award-winning products for their mountain environments. It was the same expedition connection that created our ski and snowboard lines. The same formula built all our tents, packs, duffels, and sleeping bags. It was harnessing the feedback of our adventure kayak team and our adventure travel guides that helped launch Travex®. And connecting with our hunting guides is what built our groundbreaking Sport Shop wingshooting line. To us, fishing seems like the same guide-built story of success. But for you, it’s the lasting confidence that each piece of our fishing gear is built from complete connection to their daily environments.
