Ultimate Hiking Kit List Checklist > Wherever I Lay My Pack

When you’re going on a hike, it’s essential to be prepared. You need to have kit with you for all eventualities, and also be able to carry it. Everything you need to survive in the wilderness, whether you’re away for a few days or a few weeks, has to be considered. This can make packing seem like a mind boggling chore! But fear not – here is my ultimate hiking kit list checklist, which is useful for overnight hikes and longer. The ultimate hiking kit list checklist can be referred to for hikes such as the Kalalau Trail.

The Ultimate Hiking Kit List Checklist

The Ultimate Hiking Kit List Checklist details everything you need for your next hike. Obviously for day hikes you won’t need camping and cooking gear, so amend the list for your needs. Keep it handy while you’re packing so you don’t forget anything!
