I hate logos on my gear. I am not a walking billboard. The affixing of brand-names and logos on the outside of gear has got to stop. North Face will be first against the wall when the no-logos revolution begins.
Until then, I dream of making my own logo-free gear. I could make it just the way I want it. I haven’t sewed on a machine since 7th grade home ec class and I don’t own a machine, but that doesn’t keep me from dreaming.
I found a couple of good sites that sell fabrics and patterns for gear.
And while I dream of making my own gear it’s equally important to dream of a place to travel with it. At besthike.com I can plan my “around the world hiking extravaganza!”
