My 2014 PCT Gear List

My entire life in a bag. My 2014 Pacific Crest trail thru-hike gear List.

Last updated: March 12th 2014
My gear list still has a few things missing so a base weight is hard to determine at this moment. I’ll update this list as I acquire equipment. Would love to hear feedback, tips, advice, and criticism if you have any (comments @ the bottom).
