We’re asked many times about what travel gear we carry for our trips and, although we’re not full-time travellers, travel gear does play an important role for us. Most of the stuff we bring along with us these days has been tailored over the years to suit our travel style.
Quality is very important to us, and we tend to get high quality and durable gear in order to avoid disappointments (which have happened!). Some travel gear can be on the expensive side and it may not be right for everyone’s liking or budget. Be sure, there’s a lot of offer in the market and plenty alternatives to choose from.
The most important thing is that not every trip is the same and we don’t take everything with us all the time. If we’re out there exploring nature, we’re definitely packing lighter and ready to capture every moment. Certain destinations have specific requirements and we cater for those with our travel packing guides.
You can find the travel gear we use in the categories below.
