Where would a traveler be without travel gear? It enables us to do amazing things around the world….but it also disables us if we have too much of it. When I started traveling full-time (back in the pioneer days), I bought all the latest and greatest travel gear I could find – before realizing that if I tried to carry it all, I’d need a full-time porter.

In this collection of posts, you will find various pieces of travel gear that I have tested along the way. Some items remain a part of my full-time travel entourage today, while others I’ve either worn through or given away (since I like to change up my full-time travel packing list from time to time to keep things interesting).

In all cases, these reviews reflect my unbiased opinion, warts and all.
