The Lowepro Flipside Trek BP 350 AW is advertised as “an outdoor camera backpack for photographers who need to bring a balance of photo and personal gear for a day’s adventure in nature.” Let’s have a closer look.
For my last multi-day hikes, I put together a packing list. Maybe it is of use for some of you.
This is a quick review of the Therm-A-Rest Trail Pro (2016 model), a self-inflating backpacking mattress.
The Apus 2 from Portal Outdoor is a super lightweight and compact tent that is also priced very competitively. It is advertised as the “ultimate solution for trekking, bicycle touring or other adventures”. Sounds too good to be true? Let’s find out!
For multi-day hut to hut hiking, backpacks with a capacity between 30 and 40 liters are generally recommended. Jack Wolfskin offers a suitable candidate with the ACS Hike 32. It is a dual-chamber hiking pack with a well ventilated suspension system.
Here are some photos of my recent overland trip in Tanzania, through the Ngorongoro crater and the Serengeti.
I’m a person who really likes to take photos on vacation, and I would be frustrated if I lost some (or even all) of them before I get home. When you think about it, there are many things that could happen to your camera and memory card: You could lose it, or it could get damaged, stolen or experience a hardware failure. Therefore I think it’s important to make a backup of your photos on a daily basis. But how?
Many people (including myself) are a bit worried about their health when travel to 3rd world countries. Most of you will know the basic rules, but anyway I decided to summarize the most important points.
A couple of years ago I started to make packing lists and tried to refine it with each additional trip.
In my opinion, the following list is pretty extensive. However, I do not give any guarantees for its completeness, use at your own risk 😉
The Osprey Sojourn 60L is a versatile, high-quality travel bag. The fact that it has wheels and can be carried as a backpack makes it really attractive. Unlike many other bags that come with carrying straps, this one is actually comfortable to carry, I couldn’t tell a difference to a regular trekking backback!
Since the carrying straps can be covered (or even removed) when not used, they are kept clean and don’t get in the way when you want to check the bag at the airport.
