This is my complete Lightweight Hiking Gear list. This gear list enables me to hike almost anywhere in the world in anything but the most extreme of weather. In the last 3 years I have hiked almost 13000km (8075miles) and feel very comfortable about my gear. I carry all this gear with me as I cycle around the world. Fortunately the same gear for hiking also works well as my adventure cycling gear.
My Lightweight hiking Gear list base weight is normally around 6kg (13lb), but in very cold weather that weight can increase to around 9kg (20lb), specially if I am carrying snowshoes and winter clothing. My selection of gear does not put me in the ultralight range but my gear is both lightweight, strong and dual purpose. Not all the gear listed is carried with me on every hike, but it is a list of all the gear I carry with me as I Cycle and Hike the worlds most amazing places.
Note:- Most of these items have been very well used by me and I’m in the process of updating my gear. Check back in a couple of months to see what has changed.
