This is an example of a backpacking gear checklist for backpacking in the summer time. Please note that the list includes just the basic gear.
Of course you can always get the list even compact if you want and don’t need anything extra in your gear. Keeping the gear minimal and as light as possible is often called ultralight backpacking. There are many great principals in ultralight backpacking that everyone should take a note of.
