Gear & Equipment Reviews what is hot & what not

Some of the cool travel equipment and gear we use that has worked for us.

You’ve been there, wanting to buy an outdoor product and been baffled about which product is best and will suit your requirements? Or, worse, bought a product only to learn later that you didn’t buy the right one for your needs?

We’ve been there too and that is the reason for this section.

There’s some good quality travel gear available on the market. It’s all about balance. Your choice is between paying a testicle and half a square meter of scrotum skin for an over spec branded tent for example or be a cheapskate and buy one which won’t last a month.

The gear and equipment we list we have used for an extended time, therefore we are happy to put our nuts on the line and vouch for what we are punting. We have not received any kit from sponsors.  Any brand loyalty I have is based on long-term personal experience and nothing more.  So any judgements I may pass on the kit I am using are entirely impartial.
