Don't Miss Any Moments. This is our Travel Gear. I Really Recommend you Spend a Little Bit of Money on it. You are Going to Have it for Years!

Our Travel Gear

Travel gear may be low on your list of priorities once you’ve paid out for an expensive trip.  However, good travel gear can make your experience less stressful, more comfortable and more memorable. Spending that little bit extra on a backpack may make the difference between you backpacking once or doing it year after year.  Buying quality travel gear means that it will withstand the stress and strain inflicted by various modes of transport.  Also, holidays are memories and investing in the right camera will capture those moments in the best detail possible so that you can enjoy them for years to come.  In short, buy your travel gear wisely and see it as a good investment.

Backpacks for Women

The Fairview 40 is an extremely light backpack.  It features a zip-away ventilated back panel and can be packed like a traditional suitcase but carried like a rucksack. The Fairview’s back system was designed specifically for a woman’s body.  It includes an ergonomically shaped hip belt, harness, yoke and back panel.

The solid and sturdy back system allows you to carry your baggage comfortably on your travels from place to place.

Another comfort feature is the padded handles on the top and sides of the rucksack which enable you to effortlessly collect your rucksack from baggage reclaim.

It’s easy to access your stuff as the rucksack features a large zipped opening.  However, thanks to the lockable zips, unwanted intruders are kept away!

Inner compression straps allow you to maximise your packing space and secure your belongings.  Other great touches include the top pocket where you can store small electronics and sunglasses, dual front mesh pockets for water bottles and an interior padded laptop sleeve.

If you have a slightly higher budget, the Fairview 55 has a 13 L ‘zip and clip’ daypack with spaces to organise your small electronics, sunglasses, water bottles and laptop.  The daypack can also clip onto the harness of the main pack using a ‘kangaroo style’ attachment.

Inside the main rucksack is a mesh pocket which is useful to keep your dirty laundry and shoes separate from clean clothing.  You can also attach a sleeping mat to the lower external straps.

Backpacks for Men

The Farpoint 70 is Osprey’s lightest travel backpack.  Similar to the ladies’ backpacks detailed above, it features a zip-away ventilated back panel and can be packed like a suitcase, but carried with all the flexibility of a rucksack. The solid and sturdy back system allows you to carry your stuff comfortably on your travels from place to place.

Another comfort feature is the padded handles on the top and sides of the rucksack which enable you to effortlessly collect your rucksack from baggage reclaim.

It’s easy to access your stuff as the rucksack features a large zipped opening.  However, thanks to the lockable zips, unwanted intruders are kept away!

For added security, the compression straps attach and secure a 13L ‘zip and clip’ daypack which enables you to organise your small electronics, sunglasses, water bottles and laptop.  This daypack can also be attached to the main pack, using a ‘kangaroo style’ fixing.

The internal compression straps also maximise your packing space and secure your items.  Also, a mesh pocket provides a perfect way of isolating dirty clothes and shoes from clean clothing.  Right at the bottom of the pack are external straps which can be used to fix a sleeping mat.

 

 

Camera

Usually we visit a country once. It's important to capture fantastic memories forever!

The Canon EOS 7D Mark II compares extremely favourably to other DSLR cameras and is perfect for anyone who loves taking great photographs and is interested in video recording.  The camera features a high-resolution 20.2-megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor, the Canon 7D Mark II is an incredible camera for catching a great level of detail in a wide variety of situations. The 7D Mark II is compatible with Canon’s wide range of EOS lenses and makes an excellent second body or main camera for individuals wanting to shoot portraits or landscapes.  However, the APS-C sensor means that it is especially well-suited to action, sport and wildlife photography.

Shooting quick moving subjects is made altogether less demanding with the Canon 7D Mark II as it includes a progressed 65-point cross-type Dual Pixel AF framework allowing extremely accurate and fast focusing. The camera’s advanced AF can likewise focus in conditions as dark as – 3EV, equal to moonlight. Using the power of dual Canon DIGIC 6 processors, the 7D Mark II is able to take full resolution images at a fast 10fps for non-stop burst mode shooting. Canon’s progressive 150,000-pixel metering sensor with IR detection allows the 7D Mark II to give consistent exposures in even the most difficult of lighting situations.

The mix of dual DIGIC 6 processors, advanced 20.2-megapixel sensor and 65-point Dual Pixel CMOS AF enables the Canon 7D Mark II to bolt onto and track subjects across the frame.

The Canon 7D Mark II includes a strong, weather-sealed design, with a strong grip and custom controls, making it a top choice for professional photographers working in the field. For photographers who travel, area-based geotagging can be switched on in the 7D Mark II through inherent GPS. Moreover, the camera has double card spaces, offering SD and CF card compatibility, allowing photographers to expand storage capacity or create automatic back-ups.

Action Camera

I bought the Go Pro Hero 6 in black from Amazon for our last trip. Straight away, I used it without changing any settings and I can say that the results are amazing. We even dived in Puerto Morelos with the Go Pro Hero 6 and we loved how the camera performed underwater. In short, this action camera is very easy to use. I advise you to buy a good micro SD card (200GB gives you plenty of room for your travel movies).
