You will need top lightweight gear to hike places like the The Stairway to Heaven hike on Oahu, Hawaii, (also known as the Haiku Stairs). A grueling 3,922 stairs that lead up the imposing mountain ridge, often at an almost vertical incline, with only a handrail to catch you from falling into the valley below. Others like those in the Andes Mountains, long thru hikes for the Triple Crown of the PCT, CDT, and AT are a perfect fit for the gear you have assembled here.

We all very much appreciate your help in supporting the hiking community all these years.

Good luck to everyone entering and safe travels.

Well done on this promotional contest!
I’ve looked up all the things and spreadsheet the info just in case I am lucky enough to win. I wanted to see what would be improved in my pack (everything!)

While gathering all the info I ended up buying some items that aren’t listed as prizes in the contest. Justifying it as buying things I already “need” while boosting my entries. And I also have a list of items I’d like to get if I am not lucky enough to win. Looking at you Dandee Packs, and you Purple rain adventure skirts!!!

This is a great mix of products, especially up here in the western part of the Rockies where the mountains meet the desert. The varied terrain and micro climates make these items essential here.
