This is my typical three-season gear list. My base weight (everything other than food, water, and clothing worn while hiking) is 12.4 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. In addition to the below gear, I will bring situational gear as needed, such as microspikes (in snow conditions) and a bear canister (where required), and send them home when they’re no longer necessary.
