Wilderness

All the essentials when I go hiking. I’m still learning and looking for ways to cut weight so don’t assume this is dialed in.

Gear

Item Brand
Pack Ultimate Direction Fastpack 25
Sleeping Bag 30 deg Feathered Friends Flicker
Sleeping Bag 0 deg Feathered Friends Ibis
Bag Liner Sea to Summit Extreme Liner
Sleeping pad Nemo Tensor
Pillow Sea to Summit Aeros
Tent Nemo Hornet Elite
Footprint Nemo Hornet Footprint

The sleeping bag liner adds about 25 degrees of warmth while keeping the pack pretty light. It’s a little annoying to get in and out of at night but worth it.


Clothing

Item Brand
Shoes Altra Lone Peak
Shorts Tracksmith Session Shorts
Shirt REI merino wool

Additionally I’ll carry two pairs of wool socks, a wool hat and gloves.

1L Bottle Smart water

If we’re traveling long distances we’ll leave the stove behind and cold soak food. It’s pretty light on its own but packing enough fuel can add weight.
