AUSTRALIAN MKT: $TUPIDLY Affordable Adventure Riding Gear


For those of you who have asked this is the same article and list but the products draw from the AUSTRALIAN Market Amazon instead of the U.S., CANADA or U.K. Hope it helps!

It goes without saying, I would hope, that we are NOT claiming that 'more affordable' products compete with the top brands. What we do espouse however is that a person does not have to be wealthy in order to live an adventurous lifestyle. This is important to us for these 2 reasons:


1. Sometimes people fall on hard times and can't afford a $750 Klim riding jacket. I am one of them from time to time and thereby appreciate discovering alternatives to the costly and almighty 'latest and greatest'--not to mention having the opportunity we do to share those discoveries with others who might benefit from them. In short, we get it. If you do not, this might not be the article for you.


2. Until very recently, our sport was never about these stylish and lavish things. However, today these nearly 'superhero-matching-costume-and-rocket' standards are so prolific in social media and corporate marketing that they often serve best at merely keeping people so tapped out financially they don't even have time to ride. It's insanity by many definitions and at the end of the day... That next latest and greatest product sworn to fill that hole in you? They'll only say that until the next model they need you to buy comes out. I'm going to let you in on a little secret however...


They made the hole.



EVERYTHING YOU SEE HERE.....



Before we begin: I think it is significant to note that in our quest to save money and share our findings we have come across many products that DO adequately compete with the top brands sold by manufacturers that just can't compete with the huge corporate marketing budgets available to companies like Tourtech, Klim, Givi etc. While a couple of those manufacturers ARE in this collection below, those gear selections are in a 'stand-alone' report coming very soon!


We hope you enjoy and benefit from this report. We'd love to hear feedback if you make any purchases from this list. And here we go...

At the VERY end of the day I'll leave you with this... Rock what you have. Don't fall into the shiny trends or anything else that keeps you out of the saddle. 30 years ago my camp coffee machine was hot water and my pants pocket for a filter. Gross I know. But... I gotta admit... we were a lot better off that way. It was real, didn't take batteries, and cost nothing but the 'sacrifice' of not being made weak.
