Gear Reviews

Backpackers are intrigued by gear.  We want to know what will enhance our time in the elementwoods, or increase our comfort while climbing a mountain. Therefore, we are interested in the gear that is available and the gear that others are using.

On this page you will find links to gear that I have reviewed, or information on what I am packing in my backpack.  Most reviews are accompanied by a video.  I would encourage you to consider subscribing to my Youtube channel to get notifications when new videos are posted.
