Everything I Carried on the Appalachian Trail in 2022

The Compilation of Gear for my 2022 Appalachian Trail Thru-Hike

This layout isn’t perfect for everyone, but it worked really well for me. I have my initial gear list posted on my profile if you’d like to see how everything changed over the 2,200 miles.

Let’s start with the big stuff:


Zpacks Plex Solo

4/5 stars

14 oz -$600

Notes: I loved this tent! The DCF material was sturdy and it only got one small hole (repairable with the tape included in the tent). My only complaint was the splashback that occurred under the vestibule and into the cabin. The tarp doesn’t quite touch the ground so if it rains hard, expect some drops on you!

Sleep System


Enlightened Equipment Revelation 10-degree quilt

5/5 stars

24.10 oz -$335

Notes: WARM. Probably overkill in the summer but when it started getting cold in Maine, the “Brrrrr’s” were eliminated in this guy. If you have the budget, I would suggest a summer/winter bag or quilt option for your excursion!

Another option is a physical filter, which takes out any debris and bacteria to make water completely safe to drink. Mejia recommends the Sawyer Squeeze, which comes with a fill bag and is incredibly easy to use.

Everything from Sawyer is super highly rated and effective. They’re fragrance-free and dry/set nicely, too.
