Packing List / Equipment Form

Here are the suggested packing lists for each of the upcoming Fatpacking trips. Just select the trip from the drop down and click the button to see the packing list.

Suggested equipment list

The packing list below is designed to help you select items that will make your trip safe and enjoyable. The objective is to make sure that you are protected from the elements while concurrently minimizing pack weight. Each trip requires a slightly different set of equipment.

Obtaining Equipment

The list may seem long, daunting and expensive. But don't let that dissuade you. We may be able to suggest alternate options. For example, you may be able to borrow some equipment from friends, rent certain items from an outdoor retailer or even obtain all sorts of equipment via a single Facebook post.

Equipment Rental

You can rent good quality gear for reasonable prices from

The Optional Column

The "Optional?" column means that you can generally get along without the item, but it still might be a really nice thing to have along on the trip. For example, if you forego Glove Liners and it happens to get really cold, you could put socks on your hands and stay reasonably warm, or you could just suck it up and have cold hands for the day.

The Share Column

The "Share" column means that the entire group should have this item, but that not every individual needs to. For example, it's a lot of extra weight for 10 people to each carry a big tube of sunblock. 4 people could bring sun block and share theirs while using somebody else's bug repellant.

Where to Shop

Your local outfitting store is best. However, here are some national retailers that have an online presence and likely have a store near you.
