NOTE: MY PROFILE HAS A PDF VERSION OF MY GEAR LIST THAT INCLUDES CATEGORIES, BRANDS, MODELS, QUANTITY, AND WEIGHTS. THAT IS THE LIST THAT GETS UPDATED AFTER TAKING SUGGESTIONS FROM YOU GUYS.
Well, I was very into backpacking and camping as a child. I did the whole Cub Scout --> Boy Scout --> Eagle Scout thing and now I've developed a strong desire to get back out there. Below, I'm providing my gear list for compliments or criticism, but please keep in mind that I'm not going for a complete *Ultralight* setup, just a comfortable level of weight using high quality products. I already own a good chunk of the list.
