New month, new gear! No more fear of missing out on the latest and greatest. 

Keeping up with our new tradition of a monthly product pick blog to help you keep up with our constantly updating inventory, we asked the ACK merchandising team for their input on what to spotlight for April.

Here are April’s new product picks:

1. Wilderness Systems Helix PD Pedal Drive

Wilderness Systems Helix PD Pedal Drive

A lot of you have been asking when Wildy would release its pedal drive… Well, it’s here and we’ve got it! Compatible with the Wilderness Radar Series, the drive offers forward-reserve maneuverability for smooth, fast, hands-free fishing. What’s unique about this drive is the three stages of propulsion it offers: fully deployed, zero draft, and fully stowed, so that kayak anglers can pedal to the fish, paddle to dial in the pattern and motor back to launch.

2. Soft Science Water Shoes

Soft Science Terrafin Water Shoe – Men
Soft Science The Fin 2.0 Water Shoe – Men

Ranging from wading boots for fly fishing to stylish slip-on canvas shoes, Soft Science has an impressive range of water shoes to offer. You wouldn’t even realize they are water shoes at first glance.

3. Petzl GriGri+ Assisted Braking Belay Device

4. SealSkinz Apparel

SealSkinz Waterproof Beanie

As you might guess from the name, SealSkinz is ideal for insulation and we’ve got a whole bunch of new products in that realm: Running gloves, fishing gloves, a waterproof beanie and waterproof trekking socks!

5. NRS Sun Shirts


NRS Baja Sun Shirt Long Sleeve – Men

We already have a great selection of NRS fishing apparel, so these two new additions – the long sleeve NRS Baja Shirt and the NRS Varial Sun Hoody – are great to have for the summer months to keep your skin protected on the water in a breathable (and well-designed) material.

And of course, these are just a select few out of the many new products we’ve got coming in! Like we said, it’s hard to keep track of, but we’ve got you covered. 😉
