2015 Continental Divide Trail Gear

Putting together my gear list was harder than I expected, probably because I switched my gear out as I hiked over the 160 days, in addition to the fact that I had never weighed my pack, either before the trail or during. You probably couldn’t call me a light-weight hiker, more of a medium-weight hiker. If it fit in my pack I carried it! A lot of what I carried can be attributed to my pack, the Six Moon Designs Fusion 50. It could carry whatever I put in it no matter how heavy…7 liters of water? skis? Check. The suspension was wonderful.
