Gear List PCT 2016

Gear list for my 2016 PCT hike

This is my gear only. Does not include food, water, or fuel.

Food weight is approximately 2 pounds per day. My plan is to carry no more than 5 days worth of food at a time. The only exception is the leg between Mojave and Kennedy Meadows where I'll start with 6 days of food. 2 X 5 = 10 lbs

Water weighs 2 lbs per liter. I estimate that I will be carrying about 6 liters per day for the first 700 miles. 2 X 6 = 12 lbs

10 + 12 + 12 = 34 lbs (+11.6 oz)

It's a good thing that I have been training with a 37 lb pack.

I won't need to be carrying as much water so the additional weight will be offset by a reduction in water weight.
