The final verdict: gear reviews

It’s almost two years since we set off from Amsterdam (two years!!). We are still cycling and camping as much as we can in our free time, me in Yunnan and Cyril in Europe. Cyril just cycled three days in the Limburg hills, and I am looking forward to a two-month tour around Belgium, the Netherlands and the UK this summer. Here are the reviews of all of our gear. Follow the links to find our final verdicts on durability, customer service, usability etcetera on everything we took with us on our trip.

The oufti blog won’t be updated anymore. If you are interested in our adventures beyond Oufti: follow Cyrils adventures here and sign up for Vera’s writing here.

Oufti! blog nominated for a cycling blog award

It’s been quiet on the Oufti front, but a few days ago I got a message that I was nominated for a Dutch cycling blog award. Wonderful!

Dear readers, if you enjoyed the updates during our trip: please vote for Oufti by following this link. You only have to click, no need to leave personal details. Oufti! is right at the bottom of the nominee list.

Thank you!

I’m working on a final blog post with the last gear reviews. Expect a stern but fair verdict of our favourite things, brands that become friends (looking at you here dear Nigor) and unfortunately also our worst customer service experience. I love my Surly to bits but their customer service is… not very good to say the least. There is one company however that is even worse. To be continued..

Gear reviews

After 7 months of the road we take a critical look at our camping gear and come to strict but fair conclusions in our verdicts. Check out our thoughts on our favourite things and on the not-so-favourite things we left behind, right here in the camping gear review page.

We also finally found the time to update our Tools and spare parts page. This is the area where you potentially can save a lot of weight, so don’t forget to check this page before you set off on your trip.

We will do a similar review on our clothes later but we can give you our conclusion now: merino wool, everything merino. Socks, shirts, long johns, jumpers, buff, hat. Mmmmerino! We love you.
