Travel Gear

Choosing the right travel gear is one of the most important aspects of pre-trip planning. It’s far better to get the right gear before you travel, rather than having to hunt down a product in an unfamiliar place.

This travel gear page is a directory of the world’s best travel gear. Find gear and travel accessories from the most popular brands, and innovative products from new producers.

The products in the directory are listed with a basic product description in catalog format. For my personal reviews see the “Travel Gear Reviews” section below.
