Welcome to Real World Gear

      I leverage my passion, knowledge and experience of men's lifestyle, outdoor activities, motorcycles, firearms and popular culture, to hopefully offer a uniquely enjoyable experience. Most guys like to shop but all of us hate to be sold. I've designed the site to be quiet and quick loading, to enable you to kick back with a cup of Joe and read in peace. Ladies and younger people are most welcome too. You should be able to find stuff that the man in your life will truly appreciate. Honestly, socks and ties just don't cut it anymore. A 'for her' and 'for little ones' gift section is in the pipeline, so he may return the favor.

This site receives many visitors from around the world, accordingly, information is presented in plain English to support readers with a different first language. The majority of my products and vendors are available through Amazon for convenience, value, customer feedback, return policy and personal identity security. I receive a small percentage of the seller's margin after you purchase an item through one of my links. This system has absolutely no bearing on your purchase price but enables me to offer niche products that I can stand behind.

In all successful adventures, experience, professional instruction and preparation of mind and body, take precedence over equipment but it remains a critical element. I promote gear that has stood the test of time and proven durable, reliable and easy to use. Nothing beats long term service history as an indicator of quality. Most of my products have years, if not decades of satisfactory performance behind them. I find simple design to be superior in critical conditions. Often, mass produced products with some additional user upgrades, prove to offer the best package. Most items are available in subdued colours, to serve a broad spectrum of clients. I don't select items by country of origin, preferring to let the cream rise to the top. Thankfully, this often translates to U.S. manufacture.
