I purchased the Montane Shell Atomic DT 2.0 rain pants online, which ended up fitting me great. They really compress very well into the small stuff sack that comes with it. From ZPacks I got a cuben fiber stuff sack for my clothes and a more heavy duty one for food, they are ultralight and of great quality. Lastly, I got the minimalist Dirty Girl gaiters which is not waterproof, but it won’t matter since I’m not wearing waterproof shoes.

I have decided to take the same New Balance 875 I used on the John Muir Trail in 2009. They are a little worn out, but I hope they will hold it together.

Unlike for the JMT, I won’t be using a water filter for this hike, choosing instead to use purifying tablets. I also won’t be taking a bear canister, which is a huge relief.

Other than the above, the list is almost identical to last year’s JMT.
