Gear List



The gear listed here is intended to work for a multi-month thru-hike of the 2,663 mile long Pacific Crest Trail, so it needs to be durable as well as lightweight. I'm constantly looking for ways to improve, so check back often for updates!

  1. Hey John, you've put a lot of work into this! Great to see and makes it so easy for your readers to not have to hunt down information themselves.
    Very impressed!

  2. John,

    Have you heard anything about sewing in the floor instead of haveing mesh?
    After your experience on the P.C.T. would you have had the floor sewn in?
    Did you accumulate dust inside the tent? Was your experience with the Hexamide Twin favorable.
    I am getting ready to hit the P.C.T. and currently I have a fly creek 2 by big agnes .They say its 2.2 lbs but after you get stakes (hedgehog) and the fly Creek foot print (6oz) the weight comes out to 3.1 lbs..
    The total square feet in the inner tent is 28 square feet.
    I was told the total square feet in floor of the Hexamid is about 39 square feet..
    The cost for the Hexamid is about 575.00 dollars. (I felt something bite my buttocks). The flycreek is 370.00. (I can still feel something nipping at me buttocks). Whataya say Johnno?
