Favorite Gear

Throughout my training and adventures, I have whittled down my gear to what I think is best.  While I have different gear for when I am guiding an adventure versus when I am on my own adventure, I am listing it all here for you to see what I like.  Remember, just because I like it does not mean it is best for you; just some things I have decided to bring along.  I do drop or add items when conditions dictate, for example: I will not bring a climbing harness on a thru hike of the Colorado Trail, but I may on a winter trip if we are going where a rescue would be difficult.  Also, I am not going to get into the nitty-gritty like full size lighter versus a mini lighter, just the main stuff.  


I will include some links, especially if the company supports HCVA or myself personally; sometimes the link will lead to a discount!


If you want to chat gear or get into the nitty-gritty feel free to email me!
