After my AT fast pack in summer of 2013, I sought to make more of my gear list available to others. Based on an idea I had along the trail, I refined my pack design so it could fit a wider range of body shapes and sizes. Next, I published online instructions in December of 2013.

For those not up to sewing, a limited number of locally and professionally sewn kits are available as of March 2014. The pack components come sewn, but unassembled; challenging you to think outside of the box and customize your own gear: a critical skill to any successful thru-hike!

The best gear is built for you and by you. Watch the video. Check out pack user photos. Read the news article. Join the discussion.
