Adventurers spend 100% of their time outside so it is important to keep the following clothing considerations in mind. Remember, you will be packing all gear into a backpack you will carry with you everywhere you go. Adhering to our packing tips will help to ensure your comfort in the outdoors.
Clothing items should be small, light, and quick-dry! Materials such as fleece, polypropylene, wool, and CoolMax wick moisture away from the body and are much preferred to cotton, which is heavier and slow-drying.
Bring clothes that you don't mind getting DIRTY!
BREAK-IN any new shoes or boots before arriving to avoid blisters.
Personal care items--such as toothpaste, deodorant, body powder, etc.--should be travel size to reduce bulk and weight.
Contact lenses are difficult to keep clean on trail; therefore, we recommend eyeglasses. Even if you are planning to wear contacts, please bring spare eyeglasses as back-up.
Valuables such as electronic devices, jewelry, money, etc. are not permitted on trail. We do provide lockers for participants to store personal items to be retrieved after the trip; however, Wilderness Adventure at Eagle Landing will not be held responsible for damage, loss, or theft of such items.
For safety reasons, any jewelry or piercings must be studded. Hoops are not permitted.
For safety reasons, lighters, matches, and knives--including pocket knives--are not permitted.
