Hey Mountain Chicks! Need help deciding what to pack for a backpacking trip? We have you covered. Dani is taking a 2 night trip to Havasupai Falls pretty soon and she's put together a list of what she's bringing. See it here on this weeks Mountain Crush Monday and become a member when you're done!
This week I’ll be visiting Havasupai for the second time and I’m really excited to try out my new Summit1500 pack from our friends at TETON Sports. I have to admit, last year I way over packed and had a back ache during my whole trip as a result, so this time around I’m focusing on packing light. What's also great about TETON is when you buy a pack from them, they come with a list of things they recommend you bring on adventures! So if you're stuck on what to bring, they did the thinking for you.
This 25L pack is perfect for an overnight trip. It has all the adjustments and pockets you could ever want. For this Mountain Crush Monday, I wanted to share with everyone what I’ll be bringing with me. Here’s my list for 2 nights at Havasupai falls! Enjoy and become a member of Mtn Chicks when you’re done reading. Happy trails!
Backpack – TETON Sports Summit1500
Hammock – ENO LED hammock
Sleeping bag – OutdoorsmanLab 32F
NOTE: I brought a tent on my first trip to Havasupai. While rain can be a concern, the forecast looks clear for now. I really am focusing on taking as little as possible so a hammock is my sleeping arrangement of choice for now. I’ll be bringing a sleeping bag for extra warmth. I usually recommend going 10 degrees lower than what you expect the temperature to be at night.
