Outdoor Adventure Checklists

Make your list and check it twice

While outdoor adventures involve handling whatever nature throws in your path, there's nothing spontaneous about packing. A laid back approach is sure to yield amusing stories - if you last long enough - but do you actually want to endure the chilling ordeal? Whether you're a seasoned trekker or newbie, learning to pack like a boy scout is easy with a few simple tools. We promise you'll still have stories to tell.

Double Duty

Whether you're trekking with the kids through the Grand Canyon or planning a four-month expedition to Waterton make sure every item you pack can pull a double shift.

Leave your favorite jeans at home, but toss in travel pants with zippers that serve as a money belt. Ditch the purse and pick out a day pack that can hold your wallet and all the snacks needed for a short woodland trek with the kids or an urban crawl. And if you do leave a crucial item at home on the kitchen table, you'll avoid the wrath of your fellow trekkers when you whip out a clever alternative.
