my gears of choice 2013

year ends and i'm listing down this year's favorite gears and wears. you will notice that there's something in common to almost all of these. durability, light weight, easily pack and it looks monochromatic.i chose gears which are easily packed at smallest space possible in my backpack. most of these i wear both for travel and work. so here's my favorite gears and wears for 2013.

Wow, your gear is way too professional for us :). We travel on the cheap wearing snickers and simply t-shirts. Actually, we might think of saving up some money to buy a jacket like yours!
