Good travel gear is essential to making traveling, hiking and enjoying all these wonderful places on the planet so much easier.
There are times that all the fancy features on your gear are immensely helpful and you’re thrilled that you spent a little more in the beginning to be more comfortable, or have something more durable, later on.
Then there are times you discover that while something looked like a good idea, it’s either poorly executed or over-engineered. Always ask yourself, is there a simpler way to do this? or does this gadget serve more than a single purpose?
Then there are the times you picked up a simple, inexpensive piece of travel gear and it becomes your favorite thing in the world while you travel. These instances are especially good when you can use the item in your everyday life as well, because then the item has a lifespan far beyond your vacation and is of much greater value.
We’ve designed our gear articles with all of this in mind. We’ll discuss when and where you can save a little money, and when you should spend to get the best. We’ll look at all the options and features and share what we think, or have discovered, are the most important ones, so you can make an informed decision.
Our goal is to help you find the right piece of travel gear for you.
As you peruse our offerings, if you have any suggestions or additions, we’d love to hear from you in the comments.
