Or the gear I used in 2018! Youtube! (Pacific Crest Trail)

Or the gear I used in 2016! Youtube! (4,800mi ECT 6lb gear list)

The gear I used on a thru hike of the Sheltowee Trace Trail, 323 miles across the state of Kentucky traversing the entire Daniel Boone National Forest. Roughly I’ve used a similar kit for the last 8,000 miles of my hiking life, so I feel comfortable this is all dialed in to what suits me best.
