My Personal Gear

This is just some of the gear I use. I have always said, make sure you buy gear recommended by those who use it NOT from someone who just sells it!

My Backpack

Osprey Europe Men's Atmos AG 50 Backpack

  • This is the best Rucksack I have ever owned. It's got an Anti-Gravity suspension - so feels like you are carrying less weight than is in your pack. It's got top and bottom entry points which is great for storing your sleeping bag or even your tent to pitch first. Stow-on-the-Go trekking pole attachment allows you to stow your poles in steep terrain or whenever you need your hands free. 

  • This has to be one of the best features of an adjustable hip belt that pulls out to fit even big lad's waists like mine, You can alter the Shoulder straps for those with different size backs as you need to carry it on your hips.  There is also an internal hydration reservoir sleeve that can accommodate up to a 3L reservoir. 

  • Another great feature of this backpack is the removable floating top lid. On a couple of camps, I have not needed this Top Lid so it stopped at home or I store it in the main compartment. All in All, this backpack is really well-made and has never let me down.

Mil-Tec Ripstop Poncho

Multi-Functional Poncho 

This could be one of the best pieces of kit you will ever own. I have used these in military service plus camping in general. The great thing is if it's used for backpacking it covers both you and your backpack it may not look pretty but is effective. 

Also, this can be used as a shelter by itself or as a Wind brake in conjunction with my DD Tarp XL - 4.5 meters x 3 meters above!
