Gear Checklists

Having the proper equipment and clothing will ensure you have an enjoyable and safe adventure in the backcountry. Our Gear Checklists will help you pack the items you need.

The Gear Checklists are our recommendations only and should be adjusted based on weather conditions, outdoor objectives, and personal preferences.

Regarding clothing, dress in layers. Your first layer should be shorts or lightweight pants and a synthetic t-shirt. If the weather cools, you will use the extra clothing in your pack.
