      Hello Magnara, Appreciate your couples' packing list. I see each of you carried a headlamp; was that necessary? We are starting the Camino Frances on March 1 in Pamplona, but we are leaving home for Europe this Friday so we are packing now. We (husband & I) thought we could get by with one lamp for night time excursions to the toilet. Would like your thoughts please.

        Headlamps are invaluable - one each. Saves tripping over, allows the hands to remain free. Big convenience for a small weight (you don;t need a heavy one such as cavers use, jsut get a small LED light with a simple strap)

      Hi Magnara. I saw in your equipment list that you carried an Akubra hat. Which model? I ask because I have an Akubra Territory to which I'm rather attached, but some have suggested a felt hat doesn't do well on the trail. Was yours a felt model?
      1. Magnara
        Ah, my Akubra They are just the best type of headgear in my opinion, as they are almost indestructible, are great in rain, snow, sun, and wind (with a chin strap). - they are all-purpose. Our Akubras have now walked thousands of km with us. Also, if you are an Aussie, you can be identified at a glance. Model , not sure but they would all have the same qualities I am sure.
