Gear Lists

In general this troop avoids the use of cotton materials for clothing. Cotton absorbs moisture and is recognized as a cause of hypothermia. Please do not bring cotton clothes because it might rain. Because rain and cold are unpredictable, always carry a high quality rain jacket with a hood. Rain pants, a pack cover, and a rain fly for your tent are all desirable gear. Here is an interesting article on backpacking light and various gear.
