SHT Gear List


I will begin my Superior Hiking Trail (SHT) thru-hike in precisely seven days. As of June 1, the SHT Association recommends that SHT users #RecreateResponsibly.

The intention of this hike is to raise money and awareness for PGM ONE, People of the Global Majority in the Outdoors, Nature, and Environment. I don’t work for PGM One.

By hiking the SHT, I am choosing to speak out against racial injustice in the United States—brought to light by the murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis.

Gear is a necessity for a thru-hike (historically, my ancestors traveled the trails with less, but nowadays equipment is vital).

For this hike, I want to use reliable, lightweight products from trusted brands. In the past, I purchased solely off reputation. I read hundreds of my fellow Trek bloggers’ posts and devoured review after review and bought gear accordingly.

As I began hiking, over time, I started to share my likes and dislikes. It makes sense. When you spend a great deal of time backpacking, your knowledge about gear, quality, and product attributes becomes somewhat second nature.
