We're often asked, 'What will I need for my trip?'

This is a good question and we're happy to share our insight and experience. It is critical to do your homework before planning any trip. Good planning includes having a your packing list planned out ahead of time. Your list will depend on a number of different factors, including your location, time of year, type of activity, level of experience and personal preferences.
