Complete Kits and Gear Lists for Backpacking

There are always people looking for a more complete gear list for backpacking, especially long-distance hiking like the Triple Crown presents. For this I wanted to assemble some strong lists that would help give you more ideas and allow you to craft a close set of gear for your next thru-hike.

  • Ultralight Backpacking Gear: Sub 10 Lb Baseweight
  • Budget Thru-Hiking Gear: Cheap Backpacking Kit [~$500]
  • Budget UL Thru-Hiking Gear: Cheap Sub-10Lb Kit [~$1000]
  • Appalachian Trail Gear List
  • Pacific Crest Trail Gear List

I turned 40 and realized I needed to change my life from being a desk-bound IT worker slowly dying in a cubicle. I have been working on ways to build my knowledge and skills, along with gear. I have plans to do a thru-hike on the Lone Star Hiking Trail, Ouachita Trail, and Pinhoti Trail in the next year.
