Real World Gear


Welcome to Real World Gear

      I share my passion, knowledge and experience of adventure, outdoor activities, motorcycles and life skills, to hopefully offer you an enjoyable experience. Most guys like to shop but all of us hate to be sold. I've styled the site to be quiet and quick loading, to enable you to kick back and explore.

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 colors, 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.
