The Gear Room
Welcome to our gear page! Below we are listing a lot of the gear that we use for our favourite outdoor (and sometimes indoor) activities. There's also a Bee's Gear and a Roo's Gear section for the gear used by Anna or Adam respectively where applicable. We will be adding to this page constantly and updating products as we find new favourites. Where possible we'll link to the mentioned products, reviews, and coordinating blog posts.

Leave us a comment or send us a message!
Out of all of the activities we do, we probably go bouldering most often. You only need minimal equipment but get a great workout in, build strength, coordination, balance... You can make it as easy or as hard as you want. We have been bouldering indoors mostly and done some trad climbing outdoors. Find the climbing section a little bit further down.

What's one of the most important things on any adventure? Staying well nourished of course! Food always fills up a solid chunk of our packs no matter where we go. The easiest way to fill up quickly is of course snack bars. We love ChiaCharge flapjacks and especially their seasonal collections but also like the slightly denser Clif bars a lot.
For cooked food when camping we are currently experimenting with home made or ready meals from the grocery store to cut costs. But, we also have a few tried and trusted boil in a bag meals.
