Today I'll be giving you a rundown of my personal 3-season kit; the one that I use for the majority of my section hikes. Now, I may swap out an item here or there, but by and large this is what I'm carrying on my back when I hit the Appalachian Trail.
The video below gives a basic rundown of my kit, and where each item is arranged in my 30L Thru Hiker's Pack:
Here are the weight totals of each gear group:
But you can click here to view the specific weights of every item (via LighterPack, which I recommend you use). The weights are updated to the best of my knowledge, though I'm sure someone will correct me on something in there.
Let me know your thoughts in the comments. I'd love to hear how your kits compare to what I have listed above.
