  • "the sleepingbag will still pretty much fill a whole sidecase" Erm... Nope... My 2Degree Comfort Down Sleepingbag wont even fill a quarter of that sidecase. And I consider the 150€ I spent on it a great invest still. The Sleeping Bag ist the last piece of equipment you should cheap out on. Have done it for years and would not go back for anything.

  • Это какой то бред. Понимаю если собирать кит для совсем маленького мотоцикла и если совсем нет денег, но это абсолютно бессмысленная и неадекватная минимизация, с которой ездить можно исключительно в особых условиях. При чем места этот набор занимает практически столько, сколько нормальный, а мучений и проблем приносит непропорционально больше.

I recently purchased a new adventure bike and was under the impression I would need to spend thousands of dollars to equip myself for a journey. I now see how many ways I can truly save time and money. Thank you for taking the time to break it all down.

  • We gotta have tents down at this latitude Because the places you can usually camp don't have enough trees in the proper alignment. Also, we can no longer trust the water. On the other hand we rarely need rain gear. No need for the cell phone. There is no cell service in any place good to camp.

  • Tried this very mantra on a 500 mile trip with 3 others.... It's not for multi day trips or when you're with people that have to wait on you to do a sailboat worth of tiedowns in lieu of purpose made soft bags or hard cases Still great video as always 🤙

  • Great advice, but there are a couple necessary additions to your sleeping set-up : 1) Mosquito net. Surprised this hasn't been a problem for you, as the mosquitos in BC are hellacious following spring thaw. 2) Under quilt. That sleeping bag ain't doing much for the half of your body lying on the hammock, as compressing the insolation renders it ineffective. An under quilt attaches to the underside of a hammock to insolate you from the air below, necessary for a comfortable night in colder weather.

  • I like the KISS approach and lightweight philosophy. I'm going more for dense heavy stuff (water, spare fuel, etc.) low on the sides but also low profile to reduce the width for better fuel economy and navigating tight trails, and the lighter stuff in a roll top waterproof bag on the rack/pillion - clothes, sleeping bag, etc. I have a perfect sized roll top waterproof backpack with waist and sternum straps that I can use for day trips on the bike or hiking off the bike. I can't believe a Canadian is sleeping in a hammock with a rain fly. Do yourself a big favor and get a Hennessy hammock with an integral rain fly and MOSQUITO NETTING. There's also an optional reflective pad that keeps me warm on chilly nights.

  • Great advice but be careful on hammocks. It's very easy to get way too hot or way too cold, with no easy adjustments possible. If it gets below 50, or is windy, you'll need an insulating pad underneath you in the mock. The down underneath you becomes a layer of thin fabric (no warmth).
