Pacific Crest Trail Map

Post trip gear review

Warning this post is only about the gear I used on the trip and is provided for other hikers. This may be of no interest to the average reader.

Sleeping bag feathered friends 20 deg. A

Sleeping pad z-Lite B+

Windjacket montbell B

The hood needs a way to be velcroed down when not used as in the wind it can whip around and hit you in the head and face. Otherwise excellent preformance

Shoes NB 811 B

Wore a little quickly. The newer model (812) didn't fit as nicely.

ULA Pack A

Used the Catalyst to start and switched to the circuit to end. Think the circuit is a little more comfortable. Excellent pack for a thru hike.

Base Layer Capiline A

Worked great.

Gloves ULA Overmitt B-

Wore easy had some moisture issues. I had a pair of fleece mitts (homemade) that worked well.

ULA Rain skirt A+

Worked great and didn't cause me to overheat.

Dryducks rain gear (top only) B

Had a zipper fail early on. Worked okay and was durable enough to last the whole trip with only a couple of duck tape patches.

Shirt - Railriders A

Worked great in desert and mountains.

Pants Columbia Titanium C

Worked okay but a little hot at times. Also had several seams unravel - not the greatest workmanship.

Peek email device A+

Exceeded my expectations worked well. Would be nice to have a couple of enhancements but great journalling device for the money/weight.

Hat - balaclava C

I'd skip the balaclava and just get a regular warm hat next time.

Other: If I were doing it again I would have shipped my self warmer wool or neoprene socks for the Sierra's and Washington.

I also went through a lot of socks on this trip so I may have shipped some to myself - as the selection in the towns visited at times was poor.


(from my peek)
