Backpacking Gear Checklists

Packing for a trip is a necessary evil. You’ve got to have the proper gear, but you never know what to bring. The process can be headache-inducing and wallet-emptying, with plenty of stress, to boot. To help you through this pre-trip nightmare, we’ve compiled a collection of gear checklists that will help you get through every scenario. On a glacier? Don’t forget the ice axe. Near a swamp? Double-check for mosquito repellent. Deep in the Mojave Desert? Make sure you grabbed your shades. No matter the terrain, season, or style, we’ve got the gear checklists you need.
