Temperate Climate Weekender Backpacking Checklist


  • Backpack (ahem)
  • Tent
  • Stove (Jetboil)
  • Stove fuel canister (Jetpower)
  • Stove fuel canister backup
  • Down sleeping bag - 20 degree
  • Sleeping pad air mattress
  • Down jacket
  • Light rain shell
  • Fleece
  • Quick-drying hiking pants
  • Spare socks
  • Spare underwear
  • Light gloves (like wool)-- I have a pair of trusty smartwool ones
  • Beanie (something to warm ur noggin)
  • Water source (camelbak or water bottles --but really who in their right mind would opt for waterbottles?)
  • Water filter (I use a Platypus 4-liter Gravity filter)
  • More granola/energy bars than you think you need (I opt for Larabars, Gu, and Shotblocks and go for as much variety as possible)

Nice to have

  • Backpacking pillow
  • Camping chair --I'd highly recommend getting a sleeve like this for your air mattress that lets it fold into a chair. Absolutely rocked my world when I got one.
  • 0.5 - 1 liter of whiskey or wine (for the cold)
  • Legalized greenery

Just in case

  • One pack of freeze-dried food
  • First aid kit (bandages, antibacterial ointments, tweezers, aspirin, bone saw)
