I’m a firm believer that you don’t have to spend a ton of money on gear to enjoy the great outdoors, but if you are going to make a purchase it sure is nice to have a recommendation. Every item on this list is a piece of gear that we use on a regular basis on our outdoor adventures! I tend to gravitate towards high quality gear that is also budget-friendly, with the occasional splurge on an item that I know I will use for a long time.
Many of these items have been used and loved by me for several years (through many adventures) and I never recommend anything I haven’t tried out myself. Check back often for new additions to the list and please contact me if you have any questions!
