Activities like camping, hiking, backpacking (or bikepacking), cycling, and climbing (among others) often come with the need for a variety of stuff — lots of stuff. Those of us who enjoy such things have probably accumulated enough gear to outfit ourselves (and a few of our closest friends), for almost any outdoor adventure. Gear begets gear, after all.
And all of those things take up an inordinate amount of space when stored — space that (if you’re at all like me) could probably benefit from some organization. Especially if, also like me, you live in an apartment and do not have a garage but rather, a humble, outdoor gear closet in your spare bedroom. Outdoor gear is rarely uniform in size and shape, making it especially prone to ending up in messy piles and tangled assortments of unrelated and random things — which all, in turn, makes finding what you need when you need it challenging.
