Welcome to our Hiking Gear Lists & Reviews page! This is all backpacking, hiking, and camping equipment used on our adventures. As with all things in backpacking, this is highly personal. With more than 5,000 miles of backpacking under our belts, we offer our experience. What works for us may not be what works for you. We hope that this will be helpful to you as you’re collecting your personal set of tools for the trail.
Finding the right combination of tools for you is simply a matter of what makes your experience in the outdoors enjoyable. We are not out to change your mind. We offer our insight, and hopefully, we can learn from each other through our successes and failures. Please leave comments or ask questions on any of the posts. We would love to hear from you.
We do not get paid to endorse any of these brands as ambassadors. Our reviews are honest opinions of the product. We do get paid if you purchase a product through one of our links – a small fraction by Amazon. Hence, if you like one of the pieces of equipment, please use our link and support Hikerlore’s content.
Check out our gear lists for our long-distance hikes. Here you will find everything we carried with us on our hikes of the following trails.
Our recommendations come from our experience and risk tolerance, which may be different from yours. We try to pack as light as we can without sacrificing our safety while maintaining a reasonable level of comfort. This post contains affiliate links. Help support Hikerlore content by purchasing through these links.
If this is your first thru, you will probably take more than you need. You will learn and shake down your pack as you go. If you don’t use it, lose it!
We have used a myriad of gear during our hiking adventures. Check out our gear reviews to find our honest opinions on what works well, what could work better, and what we would leave behind next time. We do not receive money from any of these gear manufacturers.
