Crew Picks

Kevin Gillespie

"As most of you would expect my objective in the field is to harvest an animal that I can then transform into a series of delicious meals for my family and friends. This often translates into a lot of long days with marginal weather and unpredictable outcomes. Because of this, I want my gear to be as flexible as possible, allowing me to carry less stuff and still be comfortable. These First Lite picks make up the bulk of my go-to gear and have worked for me literally all over the world. This way of thinking carries over into my kitchen picks as well. Once I fall in love with a piece of kitchen equipment, I want to know that it’s going to last a lifetime, and I can confidently say that apart from the salt you won’t be replacing any of these things for a long time!"
