White’s Gear

Prior to planning this trip I owned very little riding gear.  I had a couple year old HJC helmet that was 2 sizes too big, a decent pair of Icon gloves, and a heavy leather jacket with no armor or ventilation that I didn’t wear it in hot weather anyway.

I decided it would be to my benefit to purchase new riding gear:

  • Arai Signet-Q helmet
  • Under Armour skull cap
  • Sena SMH10R bluetooth communicator installed in helmet
  • REV’IT! Sand 2 jacket and pants, includes waterproof and thermal layers
  • Held Air N Dry gloves, Gore-Tex waterproof
  • Icon Pursuit Stealth gloves
  • Dianese TRQ-Tour boots, Gore-Tex waterproof

My camping gear, some new and some existing, includes the following:

  • Gregory Z55 backpack
  • CamelBak M.U.L.E. military hydration pack
  • Kammock Roo hammock with Dragonfly bug net
  • UGQ Flght Jacket 30° top quilt
