Thought Id share my kit as of now for the 2019 Gunny Loopy Loop, Biggie Loop. I might tweak a few things over the next couple weeks, but most of whats shown will be part of what keeps me hydrated, fed, warm-ish, and dry. I’ll go over a few things but if there’s questions please let me know.

Think that is all. It is very similar to what I’ve been carrying over the years. I sometimes add and subtract a few things, but this is a good representation of my core kit. I don’t plan on sleeping all that much, 1.5-3 hours a day, and I run pretty warm. I Did Not put this together only based on weight or space, but knowing what I can handle over lots of trail and error. I might add a bit more warm stuff if we get a cold snap in the next couple weeks, otherwise, Loopy Loop here I come!!!
