The gear you choose will be important to your level of comfort throughout the 35-mile hike to Taylor Wilderness Research Station.
Before you purchase your gear, you might consider testing different variations of packs, stoves, sleeping bags and tents. The Rental Center
at the Student Rec Center is a low-cost option to help you decide what you like.
When you purchase, you may consider purchasing gear from factory outlet stores, or gently used gear for a fraction of the price offered at retail outfitters.
