All gear lists of this page are available as templates so they can be included into other trip organization pages. These lists are mainly intended for beginners who don't know exactly what to bring, but are also used by many experienced people the night before a trip. If you have never packed for a trip before, or are trying to figure out what new equipment to buy, check out Veenstra's how to pack slideshow.
