In this post I will show you what I pack in my backpack and what I do not. There may certainly be a few changes before the start and I will give a short summary of the items I brought with me after the hike. If you’d like a more detailed explanation of my gear or even a video on YouTube showing you everything, feel free to leave a comment.
Don’t just take anything. Try out your equipment and learn how to use it. What works for me doesn’t have to work for you. A light backpack is great but not everything.
By the way, I created the packing list with the web tool Lighterpack. It’s not only handy so that I can show you what I’m taking with me, but also so that you have an overview of the weight you’re carrying on your back and what might still be missing or would make sense. Of course, you can also use an Excel spreadsheet or Packfire, for example.
