Cheap outdoor and photography equipment

Cheap outdoor and photography equipment

Lately, we have been spending a lot of time on the internet and especially amazon.com trying to find gear for our next big upcoming project for this fall.
There is a huge market online and to be able to find what you are looking for you’ll need to find out what your needs are. Maybe you’d like a huge backpack, But do you really need it for a weekend in Paris? Or do you need a headlight with maximum capacity while trekking?

For us our main goal is to find products that are lightweight, we hate carrying extra load of weight around  just for the fun of it. Affordability is also essential. The more money we can save on cheap outdoor equipment, the more we can spend on projects and travelling

While doing an inventory we found that we are in need of the following items:
