Here is the gear list for my planned 2021 Appalachian Trail (AT) 'thru-hike'. There are links for each item giving more details.

My target was to be able to carry 5 days of food and 2L of water with a total pack weight of less than 25 lbs, although there will be short periods where I will need to carry 6-7 days of food. Water sources are quite plentiful on the AT so I should not have to carry more than 2L of water at any point.

The notes [X] in the Clothing section refer to Andrew Skurka's 2015 article Core Backpacking Clothing.
