Gear

This is the complete gear list of what I’m bringing on the AZT. My base weight (everything other than food, water, and clothing worn while hiking) is 11.55 pounds. Each item weight that you see listed was measured on my kitchen scale, so occasionally the weights I list are slightly different from those listed by the manufacturer.
