Best Recommended Backpacking Gear; Be Adventurous!

As my renewed love for hiking and backpacking grows, I have set a number of goals. One such goal is to backpack the Pacific Crest Trail.

In order to be safe, comfortable and have fun, I must have the right gear; It is the difference between having a fun, safe trip and a miserable one. So, I am continually researching gear, looking at new features and then share my recommended gear choices with you.

Keep in mind that these are not always the top-of-the-line items. I have recommended gear that is reasonably priced while maintaining high standards. That way, we can save up for that Bucket List Trip.
