All GSBB vets will get the reference. The gear is definitely good. I understand why people were still willing to spend money with him. 
 

These have been heavily campaigned, as evidenced by the patching. I am reducing the finger curl in the trap. I need to patch the thumb plate on the blocker.

I had a set just like that. They were good, but needed somewhat regular application of snoseal to keep them from becoming super waterlogged. 

They also had the ability to change out the board on the blocker for a color change on the holes.

 I bought my set of all leather pads and gloves about 12 years ago. A few months later this other Trapper (no Canada logo) appeared on eBay. I paid $100 for it. After comparison usage I settled on it as my go to glove.

Some GSBB people may recall a graphic artist from New England (Sports Nics). He did this cartoon of me.

The initial application of SnoSeal to my leather pads. Notice how much they darken the leather. I was OK with that as back in the day we used to bathe our leather gear in Dubbin and some other liquid potions which also darkened the leather. Eventually these products destroyed the felt liner in our gear.

I'm OK with SnoSeal.

At least the innards aren’t felt these days!

Scott makes good gear and has longtime experience. 

I drueled over his 2000 model pads from his beginnings for a long time. Never was able to save for a pair. 

Very curious about his newer chest pad.

It’s unfair (to a degree) that his graphic rip offs have overshadowed his good building skills; of course taking forever and a day doesn’t help his reputation, either.
