Gear Needs.

To succeed in our goal of providing a positive wilderness experience regardless of ability to pay, we will need a lending library of backpacking gear that is often too expensive to buy for someone considering one trip. If you can donate usable gear in good shape, we would love to have it. Please bear in mind that this is for multi-day backpacking trips, so weight is an important consideration. We would welcome any donations, but here are our top needs:

  • Backpacks (adult size)
    • Clean and in good working order
    • Overnight size (30 liters or larger)
    • Preferably internal frame, external frame okay
  • Sleeping Bags
    • Clean
    • Backpackable (under ~4 lbs)
    • Rated to 35-40° F or below
    • Down or synthetic (no cotton)
  • Rain Gear (lightweight)
    • Pants and jackets
    • Good condition/still waterproof
    • Sizes M, L, XL
    • Prefer breathable, coated nylon okay
  • Outdoor/Backpacking Clothing
