Hiking Gear

Spring/Summer/Fall Overnight 

I have done everything I can to minimize weight in my camping and hiking gear to allow me to carry more camera gear.

Camping

  • Total Weight – 4844 g (10 pounds 11 oz)

Clothing

  • Waterproof Jacket
  • Fleece
  • Shirt – Avoid cotton, as it will be heavy and absorb moisture.
  • Hiking Pants – Light weight and the ability to zip into shorts is nice
  • Long Underwear
  • Hiking Socks and Liners
  • Hat
  • Gloves – I try to find gloves with a good balance of warmth and enough dexterity to still operate my camera
  • Gortex Boots – I prefer anything high top to lower my chances of rolling my ankle and to minmize rocks and water getting in through the top
  • Gaiters

Food/Water

  • Dehydrated Meals
  • Cliff Bars
  • Water – 3000g
