PCT Gear List & Strategy 2021

THIS PCT GEAR STRATEGY IS BASED ON 18,000+ PCT MILES OF TRIAL AND ERROR.

Mike Unger is one of a handful of people who has thru-hiked the PCT three times—twice northbound (NOBO) and once southbound (SOBO). Together, with input from editors Naomi Hudetz and Liz Thomas, this PCT gear list features what we’ve learned on six PCT thru-hikes, in addition to numerous other long trails and routes. Our goal is to walk you step-by-step through not just what gear to carry, but how to get the most out of your gear for each section of the trail.
