Lost Coast Outfitters’ Top Five Weekend Essentials

Lost Coast Outfitters’ George Revel, who runs his fly-shop-in-shop at Wingtip, likes to get out into the country every weekend possible to go hunting or fishing. This weekend he’ll be fishing around Bridgeport, but first, he shops our store for his Top Five Weekend Essentials, all of which can be found at Wingtip.

Bills Khakis Shotgun Shell Belt

This belt allows me to express my love for the sporting life in my everyday wear. Plus it matches my Wolverine White Pines. ($75)

Stranahan’s Colorado Whiskey

Damn this stuff is delicious. It’s a longtime favorite for passing around the campfire. And the bottle comes with its own shotglass. (Available in store only)

Wolverine Weekender Duffel

This bag’s killer. It’s the right size, with a nice aesthetic; I can stuff it with everything I need for the weekend. Like most of my outdoor gear, it’s US-made. ($400)

Sperry Top-Sider Authentic Gold Cup Boat Shoes

These are comfortable, slip-resistant, and pretty fly (fishing, that is). When I’m out on the boat, I can kick ’em off and quickly go barefoot if I need to. They have the convenience of flip-flops but are nice enough to wear out after a day of fishing. ($150)

Barbour Sapper

I really like to wear the Sapper hunting and around the city. It has nice big pockets for shells, and a good range of motion. It also has a slimmer fit than the classic Barbour designs. I dig it! ($429)
