Hiking Gear and Camping Gear List

Hiking Gear List for Overnight Camping and Day Walks

Listed below is my personal hiking gear checklist. Over the years I’ve been fortunate to buy, test and use all of the hiking gear below. I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve chopped and changed this list. I will update and add reviews when available. Feel free to add, change, or delete to suit your hiking gear needs. This list is what I use on a regular basis for all-day walks and overnight hikes.

You can also download a copy for yourself in EXCEL format. The excel format has a hiking gear checklist for day walks and overnight walks. (Hosted on Google Drive). I’ve also left links to Amazon and eBay where needed for photo and price comparison.

Feel free to share the hiking gear list if needed. If the hiking list helps or you have suggestions on new equipment, please let me know.
