I'll kick things off..

I'll start with some stuff that worked really well for us, on an 18 month RTW trip:

Marmot Aeros 3P tent - Big, very light and small, easy to put up/down, waterproof
Coleman dual fuel stove - Fantastic bit of kit. Only down side is difficult to set to a low heat.
The North Face snowshoe sleeping bag - Warm and washable, but bulky

kit

I use Halvarssons jacket and trousers, 10 days in rain in Scotland in September I was bone dry. C3 helmet most comfortable helmet I have ever had. Jack Wolfskin 3 man tent never let me down. Sleeping bag Canadian military with bivi bag excellent. Altberg boots 15 years old still going strong never leaked. Ride a Tiger 955i 4 years + never missed a beat.

cheers Spud

copy and paste, thats all you need to know on these poxy things.

camper27, just pretend the idea was everyone posts their own lists mate, works for me.

my tip; if the twatnav says a mileage for a route, add at least 25% to it for petrol planning purposes. my garmin zumo is consistently wrong in that department, dont know if tomtoms are similar.
