Equipment

There’s a lot of gear out there. Some helps you in an event and some is completely unnecessary. Deciding what you need is often a difficult task. While you can find reviews of specific products on the Things That Work page, the articles in this section are a little different. While I may mention specific products the articles here are really designed to explain different pieces of equipment so you can select what will work best for your needs.
