Backpacking with SoundWitness

My Gear List

My gear list provided below is pretty typical of how I pack for a 3-day weekend outing during the cooler, early spring months. I stress that I am not a "gram weenie", but try to balance lightweight gear with an acceptable level of comfort and safety. There are some items, although incur a weight penalty, I just love having along for the trip.  The total pack weight is minus food and H2O for the trip.  The list may be tweaked just a bit more, to shave off a few more ounces.
