A “backpacker’s pillow” is an optional added piece of comfort, or you can use your sleeping bag’s stuff sack filled with your fleece jacket and a tee shirt as a pillow case.

Personal First Aid Kit: The Troop gear includes a fully stocked first aid kit, but you should also carry a personal first aid kit to handle minor problems.

Check your cover, or backpack, for “waterproofness” prior to the trek.

Sleeping Bags are available in many sizes, fabric, fill, color, and price.

Water Bottles: Two wide mouth plastic water bottles (32 ounce size) that fit inside the larger side pocket of most packs are great but their are lighter options.

Small mouth bottles are difficult to clean and to fill with a water filter, or a drink mix.

Kits are typically “personalized”, but all kits should include moleskin (for blisters), several adhesive bandages of various sizes, a few gauze pads, adhesive tape, and disinfecting ointment.

Save weight by building your own First Aid kit with a Ziplock bag and supplies.

A bag in the low-middle price range filled with synthetic material is recommended.

Down bags are not good because they are ineffective when wet.

Bags are best stored in “cloth storage bags” or left laying as loose as possible.
