Gear

Ah, the gear list. Gear is definitely a favorite of mine. Definitely enjoy spending some coin on some quality gear. However, in my old age I have begun to understand the value of using what you have or buying quality gear that is going to last for the long term so I only have to buy it once. With that in mind, I’m going to be putting the majority of my gear up here, provide some reviews, maybe some specs as well as my gear lists as I go on various trips.

This is just a start.  I’ll continue to add my gear as time goes on.  Look for additional in-depth reviews and comments in my blog.

Salida 2

The Kelty Salida tent is designed for 3-season use and is a great all-around, lightweight backpacking tent.

Flex Lite chair–Carry comfort along on your next backpacking trip with the REI Flex Lite chair.

This chair rocks. Easy to setup, comfortable for the size, lightweight and easily packable. I could not ask for a better hiking chair or something easy to pack with my motorcycle trips.
image Lighter than its predecessor, this 3-season Therm-a-Rest ProLite sleeping pad is one of the lightest, most compact, self-inflating mattress in the Therm-a-Rest Fast & Light line.
image The legend continues with the MSR WhisperLite™ Universal backpacking stove. The trail-worthy stove gives you the option to burn nearly any fuel source, including white gas and isobutane-propane. This is an amazing piece of gear that has never failed me. Easy to setup, works amazing and packs light. Could never ask for anything more.
image Still haven’t found a backpacking stuff sack that is ultra-lightweight and waterproof? Look no further than the Sea to Summit Ultra-Sil dry sack. Amazing bags. I have not used them extensively yet but so far so good.
image Nalgene water bottles. Pretty much one of the standards.
image This two-bag system features both a large Touring Bag and an exclusive compact Day Bag. Dimensions of Touring Bag: 15.5″ W x 10″ D x 17″ T, Dimensions of Day Bag: 13″ W x 10″ D x 9″ T These Harley Davidson touring bags rock. You can stuff a ton of things in there, their easy to throw on the bike and have reflective piping for night riding. Recommended.
image Gander Mountain Fleece Sleeping bag liner. Great for the warm weather just to keep you a little covered. Very packable.
