Backpacking Gear I'll Never Carry Again


Don't be afraid to try new things! Never know what will be better for you or suit your style more in the end. This is taking a look at a gear list of mine from 2014, though it was very solid I was surprised to see that I no longer carry or use a single item now 6 years later than I did back then. In fact within just a year I had swapped out every last piece of gear you see in that photo for something different. Not intentionally! Just trying new things, and apparently finding a style that suit me better.

If you're looking for a concrete list of stuff I swapped out:
- I don't use stuff sacks anymore. Just one ziploc for small items, an odor proof bag for food, and one big trash bag to keep everything dry.
- External batteries are much more reliable than solar chargers
- My backpack got smaller and more streamlined
- I chose a quality quilt over a big name brand sleeping bag
- My tent was awesome but in the end camping under a tarp suit my style better and offered a whole sew of other benefits.
- I stopped cooking on a stove and switched to a stoveless setup
- My old very expensive and heavy rain jacket was no better than my cheap new one
- I swapped my headlamp for a handheld flashlight
- Water bladder pouches aren't as reliable (they pop) compared to water bottles.
