CleverHiker Top Picks 2017

This page is reserved for my personal favorite backpacking gear. When I hit the trail, this is the equipment I carry in my pack. Unlike the CleverHiker Gear Guide, where I highlight a wide range of exceptional choices, this page is where I talk about my personal favorites.

It’s important to remember that what works best for me may not always be the best fit for you. That said, I spend a ton of time researching and testing backpacking gear, so these choices have not been made on a whim. Hopefully my top picks will give you a bit more insight into my preferences, and may turn you on to some exceptional backpacking equipment.
