The equipment portion of the program will focus on what gear you will need to take with you into the backcountry. We will discuss tents, backpacks, sleeping bags and pads, footwear, headlamps, and various other bits and pieces. We will talk about different types of each piece of gear, what you should look for and where you should look when purchasing your first pieces of backpacking gear.
