On our journey, I have had the opportunity to test gear that is useful for camping, hiking, and traveling in general. Below are a few items that are truly exceptional. I am not sponsored by any of these companies or products, purely putting the information here as a service to others.
I’ve owned a lot of hats for hiking, largely because they were crappy and wouldn’t hold up to the use. I purchased my Tilley more than four years ago at Dick’s in Ohio and have worn the shit out of it. That thing has been to every peak I have. It has been washed many times, and it is amazing for both sun and rain.
Therm-a-rest Lite Seat
I have a boney ass. I don’t know how common this is, but it makes sitting unpleasant in many situations. This product is amazing. It easily rolls up to fit into a water bottle holder, is super easy to use, and holds up fantastic.
