Arguably one of the more fun parts of planning a trip is figuring out what new travel gear you get to buy. For some travelers, travel gear is like crack cocaine in its addictiveness – whether it’s a fancy new pack or the latest handheld calendar/GPS/mobile phone/mp3 player gadget (that also makes coffee for you), the list of travel gear you’ll be tempted to buy and bring with you on your trip is endless. But that doesn’t mean that all of the gear that’s available is right for you or even all it’s cracked up to be.
In this section, you’ll find our articles about travel gear split into four categories – tech travel gear, camera gear, specialty travel gear, and general gear & packing tips. Under each of those categories, you’ll find lots of great information about some of the most popular travel gear out there. You’ll hear from people who wouldn’t travel without it, and others who think it’s a big waste of space. The bottom line with most of this stuff is that you’ll have to read both sides and make up your own mind for your own specific situation – but we’re here to provide you with all you’ll need to do just that.
