We can't help it, we all like to have quality shiny equipment at hand when out in the wilds. The items you'll find in the equipment section have been selected for their weight, value for money and performance.

Sometimes the most expensive isn't the right tool for the job, and we have tried to give honest reviews on which circumstances will allow the products to perform at their best.

GOSSAMER GEAR KUMO
Friday, 23 June 2017  | 

I am a long distance hiker
This bag is almost perfect for me.
The basic weight of my equipment is about 7 pounds, so it is big enough to carry the gear, food for 5 days and water.
The waist belt is not needed in my opinion (assuming that the total weight does not exceed 20 pounds).
The closing of the bag is a bit odd (I would be happy if there was a ROLL TOP CLOSURE), but that's not a big deal.
Note:
You do not have the GG shoulder strap pocket, in the L size
My smartphone (navigation) does not fit into the pocket you sell.
