Gear Lists

Here is my archive of backpacking gear items that I actually used on my previous adventures, and lists of equipment that I currently use.  Planning the proper gear selection for a backpacking trip is a science to me, and it should be to you, too.  Every decision made on what items that make the cut is based on the trip location, climate, terrain, length of the hike as well as the item's weight, size, durability, and actual usefulness.
