8.7 lb Ultralight Backpacking Gear List | 2021 Optimal Setup
I’ve spent years assembling the best ultralight backpacking gear setup for my multi-day hikes into the wilderness, and I’d love to share my 2021 list with you.
Because the gear you bring along backpacking will make or break your trip. I’ve learned this lesson the hard way.
On a 2014 attempted trek of the Laugavegur Trail in Iceland, a brutal storm put me and my inefficient gear to the test, and things went downhill fast. The humbling experience reinforced what I’d already known: it was time to overhaul my backpacking gear setup.
Since that fateful trip, it’s been my mission to assemble the best ultralight backpacking gear setup for my personal needs. I’ve counted ounces, scoured over reviews, and slowly pieced together my dream kit. The base weight of my 2021 ultralight backpacking gear list comes in at 8.7 pounds.
Nowadays, I feel light, mobile, and unstoppable on the trail.
So check out the gear I love, read a few reviews, and use the checklists as you get ready for your next adventure into the backcountry.
Because backpacking is just better with quality ultralight gear.
