GEARHEADS

Below is breakdown of our gear.  Each hike we have been has led us to this current iteration of gear and I assume the AT will lead to some additional changes along the way.  Over the years we have slowly dropped the base weight for our packs by eliminating unused or unnecessary items.  As we would unpack the things after a trip we would talk through which items could go.  This process has taken us from a 35-45 pound base weight for our first hike, to a 18-20 pound base weight for our most recent hike.  For the AT we chose to add a few pounds back on in the name of comfort (i.e. my 7 oz pillow).
