THE COMPLETE LIST OF EQUIPMENT FOR THE WORLD TOUR

THE EQUIPMENT

Equipment, what a headache! What are we having? How many socks? What waterproof jacket? High shoes or low shoes? Reflex or compact? […] Enough to pull your hair out before you stop on the right decision! Here no influences we just tell you our choices.

Moreover, when you go around the world everything is, above all, a question of weight! For every thing you want to buy, it’s always the same question: how much does it weigh? And you go crazy: “What 610g for a jacket?! but it’s too heavy! ». Yes it’s silly, but after all we’re going to carry our house on our back for several months so if we can take more for the same weight, we don’t hesitate!

But be careful because there is also the technique! We have become technical clothing professionals: we know everything about Novadry technology, symbols of waterproofing or breathing. There’s everything in the stores, which doesn’t really help us because we could stay there for hours! We squat at Décathlon almost every weekend, we spot and then we look at the reviews on the internet and compare prices. And yes, it’s quite a program and an organization to buy something!

PS: We haven’t bought everything yet but we already know about what to take. Namely that since we start with Asia, we don’t immediately bother with big equipment. We’ll buy big coats and hot equipment later.
