gear list

  1. Climbing Gear List

    If you've spent time with climbers you've probably heard them talk about their gear. You may have also thought to yourself, "what in the world is that?" as you hear about new gear. Fortunately, getting started with climbing only requires a few pieces of equipment with names that aren't too difficult to get your head wrapped around.

  2. Backpacking Gear List

    The balance between too much and not enough is a delicate one. One shirt or two shirts? Three or five liters of water? How many layers should I bring? The list could go on, but they all go back to the same foundation: determining how much is too much.

  3. Rappelling Gear List

    With almost every activity, having the right gear can make a world of difference. Without the right equipment, you are very limited in what you can do. Rappelling is no exception to this, though this can often make it a very intimidating sport to get started on. In the most basic sense, all you really need is a harness, helmet, rappel device, and a rope to get down on. In practice, however, there is a lot more to keep track of.

  4. Mountain Biking Gear List

    Want to start mountain biking but aren't sure what you need to start? Or maybe a more important question, how much does starting in this sport need to cost? The answer, probably a lot less than you'd think.

  5. Camping Gear List

    The moment when you arrive at your campsite and realize that you forgot something important is not quickly erased from memory. Even just one piece of equipment can make or break a trip. That’s why I have put together a list explaining many of the necessities for an enjoyable campout.

  6. Hiking Gear List

    Hiking is by far one of the most widely enjoyed recreational activities and it’s easy to see why. It has become so easy to take half a day and breathe in the fresh air of the outdoors with a large number of short trails just waiting to be used. With how accessible many of these are, it is very easy to be under-prepared for these excursions. That’s why I’ve created a short list of some of the basic “must-haves” for a day hike, along with a few extras that I like to bring along.
