Gear is an important part of anything you do outdoors. I have to spend more money on gear than I like.
I think that many outdoor blogs, websites, and magazines push gear that isn’t necessary. For most of my life and outdoor pursuits I have had to make due with pieced together and used gear.
I am not here to push gear guys. I am here to share my experiences and reviews of outdoor, survival, fitness, and multimedia gear. You are going to see the same gear I use when I explore. Get reviews of the same fitness gear I use when I am working out. You will also get information on the gear I use in the field when I am making videos, recording audio, and taking pictures.
I will let you know when it is okay to get by on used gear, when it is okay to use a gear hack, and most importantly when I recommend dropping some coin on necessary gear. Expect honest real world reviews of equipment. Let’s Gear Up!
