It's the subject which most aspiring thru-hikers dedicate the most time, energy, and money toward. Yes, let's talk gear.

We get an early look into our how our crew's backpacking gear is treating them. They share what they've sent home (if anything), if they've added anything new, if they have any regrets- really just an overall shakedown, a few weeks into their treks. This is a subject of deep passion to many of our listeners, so grab your pens and notepads, and get ready to scribble down some notes, because here comes some advice from those who've walked some of the walk.
