Hiking the Pacific Coast Trail Southbound from Canada to the end of Oregon where it meets California.
Well, I’m off! Planning that is. I have been researching tons of backpacking gear for weeks. Packs, Pads, Sleep systems, Tents etc etc. I have finally chosen but still not have it all purchased. Here is the basic stuff.
Tent- Big Agnes Copper SPur Ul1. Nothing is every cheap. 2.3 lb.
Sleeping Bag- Western Mountaineering “Versalite” Bag, 10 degree, 850 fill, weight 1.12lb.
Pad-Air rail Sleeping Pad. 1.9 lb.
Pack- Osprey ariel65 women’s med “Deep sea blue” This could change however if I find an ultra-lite pack I like better. 4lbs. 15 oz. That is a lot of weight.
So my base weight will be about 10 pounds, if I get the lighter pack, it will be around 10.
