My Backpacking Gear

This list is a work in progress.  As of now it is just a list with a few links.  More detail will come as time is available.  Here are the big items that seem to be what people talk about and compare.  As is the case with every backpacker, this list is always under revision and within some form of iterative renewal.  I will change this as my gear changes.

Backpack

REI Globetrotter.

Reasoning: REI for the possible fully refunded return if needed, and big enough to fit a dead Yak.  (My desire for a backpack has since changed, but I still like my pack enough to stay with it for awhile.

Tent

Big Agnes Seedhouse 1

Reasoning: I love Big Agnes stuff.  I also got a great discount through a Big Agnes dealer.

Big Agnes Fish Hawk 30 (down 2011 version)

Pad

Clothing

Pants: Generic convertible to shorts cargo pants

Shirts: Tech or Dri-Fit T-Shirts obtained from most races I do.

Shoes

Least expensive low-top hiking shoe I can find when I need to buy a new pair.  Most people are really picky about shoe choices, but my only requirement is that they be low-top and somewhat light.
