Week Long Hike Wilderness Backpack - Detailed Packing List

Watch the full video here: 

In this post we want to share what we take with us for a week long hike. As we figured that it is quite different from our usual long trip packing list because we take less stuff. And hopefully it will be helpful for some of you planning your week hikes. Our packing list is more suitable for wilderness trips and being autonomous but you can always make it work for you taking less food supplies.

What do you take for a week long trips?

My longest is only 4 nights, 5 days so just shy of a week but the only difference is more food. I still pack a ‘clean’ separate shirt and underwear to sleep in, wear shorts, pack wind pants and shirt, fleece and puffy. More water treatment tabs. Really no different than 2 night trips.

My packing list doesn't include nearly the electronic load yours does. Cell phone and spare battery does it for me. No dedicated camera, tripod, solar cell, etc. I like your intermixing of gear from pack to pack to get the best load weight. I don't carry a razor, but my wife doesn't come along.... Also the titanium stove seems like an extra piece to me. For two people, I pack a one liter pot and a kettle of the same size. I eat from a bowl and bring an insulated cup since I really like my coffee hot. On the other hand, I carry more in the way of first aid and emergency stuff. I pack a designated spare meal which is dehydrated potatoes gravy mix, and bacon bits. My rain gear is more robust due to living in Washington and I include a sleeping scullcap as well as a suncap.  I save some weight by using an Equinox 8x10 tarp with a bug net sewn in that uses my trekking poles. I have enjoyed viewing your videos! Keep up the good work!
