PCT 2019: Gear List

Hey All!

So as I said in my last post, my mom and I are off in a few days to do our next leg on the PCT. I thought I’d come on here and give a little information on the different gear I’ll be taking, what my pack weighs, etc.

So I’ll start off with the gear I’ll be carrying. As my mom and I are going together, we have split up some of the weight, specifically for things we only need one of, for example our tent and stove. So if something isn’t mentioned in my personal gear list, it doesn’t mean I don’t have it, my mom is probably carrying it. At the end I’ll try to include everything she’s carrying, that we share, but I may forget some.

Let’s start! (I’ll be linking anything I can, but for some things I don’t remember the brand)

That’s it guys! I linked everything I could, and some of those could be off but they are close in price and design to what I actually have. My mom is carrying our stove and first aid kit, but other than that, I think I have everything. I also have included pictures of all of my gear laid out for reference. That’s all for now but I’ll be back in two weeks with pictures and stories from our trip!
