Best Rockhounding Gear: My Picks

Me at the Grand Canyon

I’ve spent a lot of time in the field, and over the years I’ve accumulated quite a bit of gear to take with me. I’ve invested quite a bit of money into this stuff and I’ve had the opportunity to thoroughly test it in the field, so I know what works and what doesn’t work for me. I have also gained quite a bit of knowledge about rock tumbling through first-hand experience and extensive research.

These items aren’t necessarily the most expensive or highest-end products on the market. When I research products I’m almost always about value – what is the best use of my money? I usually end up buying above average gear that performs well in the field and doesn’t break the bank. This is the stuff that I use.
