Appalachian Trail Gear List 2014

Alright folks, I now present my 2014 Appalachian Trail Thru Hike Gear List. Below is a list of everything I will be carrying for my hike, its weight and its price. Please be mindful that while I am publishing this for the world to see, I am not adopting a self-righteous mentality. I have spent a great deal of time and energy acquiring various sponsorships and am lucky to be supported by a number of great companies. This is not bragging. I am sharing my pack contents with you in hopes of providing helpful information for future thru-hikers and to also receive some constructive criticism. I know it isn’t perfect, but it’s a start. Let me know what you think in the comments section at the bottom of this page.

Here are my pack contents:
