The Best Backpacking Gear to Get You on the Trail in 2019
Finding the right backpacking gear doesn’t have to be complicated or expensive. But you do have to make sure you have the basics though like hiking boots, backpack, sleeping bag and a tent. Your first backpacking trip will be difficult if you don’t have a backpack.
It doesn’t have to cost a fortune either. This list is a good starting point for everything you need. Check the backpacking checklist too. The gear is solid and relatively lightweight. You can go lighter but more expensive, or less expensive but heavier. Used gear swaps can have awesome deals. Whatever your price range, get out and explore!
