Dave’s Gear Closet

Every backpacker craves one. Fortunately, I have one.

The Gear Closet

I’m talking about a walk-in gear closet so you can organize your fuel canisters, backpacks, muddy boots, rain apparel and so on.

Here you can find my ever expanding inventory of stuff. Feel free to e-mail me questions (davepidgeon@mac.com) if you are curious about how any of it functions:
