Lightweight Spring Backpacking Gear List – 22 Pounds w/ Food and Water

Every backpacking trip you go on is bound to have variations in gear that make each load out different. That is the case with this weekend headed to Southern Utah to hike the Boulder Mail Trail and Sand Creek in Escalante, Utah. This time I have the ability to share gear like my stove, cook pot, tent, and more. This allows for a lighter overall pack weight and makes it so necessary amounts of gear aren’t taken as well.
Key items in this lightweight backpacking gear load out are:
– Hammock Gear Burrow Econ 40 degree
– Paria Outdoor Products Zion 2p
– Exped Synmat UL sleeping pad
– Waymark Gear Co Thru 40L Pack
– MSR Whisperlite Stove
– Arcteryx Cerium Jacket
– Hydroblu Versa Flow Filter
