Essentials. Versatilities. Adornments. What is in your pocket, in your summit pack, on you, with you, in the back of your car or the bottom of your panier ready for any adventure? Little pieces of gear like headbands and neckwarmers - traditionally called accessories - are essential supplementary pieces to the rest of your gear. Ears warm, hair back, neck insulated, cozy by the campfire, on, off, on off, repeat.
