Welcome to the new Travel Gear forum. Thank you to Catu for the suggestion and James for the name.

This will be the space to discuss what shoes to buy, what bag to take, whether to take a compass or anything of that nature.

I just noticed this forum in the drop down list of forums - nice one Peter, I'm sure it will be useful.

How come I didn't notice this last night? ;)
Awesome job guys! Are you going to move the 'gear' related questions from General Talk into here? Or is this a brand new do-over?

Hmm yeah, we should probably move as many topics as possible over. Will immediately make it look a bit more inviting.

Hi,I know I`m a freshly made member,but I`m motivated.And since i have been walking A LOT with my backpack,I could have good advices for this forum.First i have to AGREE you created this,cause when you have no idea about hiking,you make such a wrong backpack which is useless(i did).So my mainpoint is:whatever you want to do,take a bigger backpack than you think you need.It will be much more comfortable,will allow place for food,make the morning locking up easier and faster,and,not to ignore,will extend your backpack life time:my first one was exploding full,it was ran out after two months...I insist that comfort is important,for hiking is already hard enough,especially if you plan a long trip.I`ll be here if anybody has any question about anything,as faras i can answer;)see you.(and always take a compass)

Hi all,
Great idea to pull the kit out on it's own forum.
I prefer smaller packs, that way i'm only lugging around the bare minimum - that way your not struggling with kit you don't really need.
A compass is always a good idea;)
