From the urban grind to the farthest reaching adventures, everyone needs gear to make their lives easier. Similar questions arise about durability, usefulness, value, and style. What is essential and what could be left behind? Is expensive really better than affordable? Is cutting edge better than tried and true? Will that pack really fit everything I need to carry?
Picking the right gear for a journey, no matter how long the duration, can be a nerve racking experience. Whether a trip to the local outdoor festival or a year long journey to the jungle, the right gear can make or break an experience. Browsing through the typical gear review sites can be an expedition in and of itself and while informative, they often leave you with more questions than you started with.
