Packing Guide


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.
