Clothing, Boots, Backpacks, Wading Gear and More

Below is a list with some information that  I thought you might be interested  in regards to Clothing, Boots, and Back Packs and other Hiking and Wading gear that I am gathering for this journey.  Most of these items are things I will use for many of my "Journeys".

Clothing

Marmot Kodachrome Pants

Merino Blend Baselayer Bottom 

North Face Venture 2 Jacket

The North Face, Venture 2 Waterproof Jacket

 Palmyth Flexible Gloves


This trip I will be hiking in colder weather.  It can be down in the 20's during the night and up into 50's or possibly 60's during the day. They even have had snow this time of year.  This makes getting the right clothing a little harder.  Layers is the name of the game.  I'll  probably be wearing gloves, hat, long sleeve jersey, possibly running/hiking tights under medium weight pants, a fleece pullover, a waterproof jacket, warm socks,  boots.  On the days we will be hiking in the water, I will be wearing medium weight pants under my waders.  I probably will have on running/hiking tights under that.  I will be getting out in cold water with my waders before the trip to see what I think will be sufficient.

 

 

Boots

I will be taking actually 3 pairs of boots.  I have used Merrell Moab line of boots for years and this will be my backup boots.  I purchased the Merrell Chameleon 7 for this trip.  It has better gripping on the bottom and the grips round up a little on the toes.  The toe box is a little bigger which I like as my big toe toenails need to hurt when I hike in the Moab boots.  I will also be taking water boots for hiking in the river but I'll address that in the wading section.

Back Packs

Thule
 

Thule BackpackThule is the backpack I've been using for the last year. The model I have is a Thule Aspect DSLR Backpack, It is a nice small backpack and I was able to remove the hip strap it came with and put in my LowePro Utility belt so that I could attach lens (in lowepro cases) to my waist. This is ideal for short day hikes where I want my equipment handy.

 

 

 

 

 

Kelty

Kelty Backpack

This is the backpack I purchase for over night trips with hopes that I could carry camera equipment in it.  I purchase a camera cube and have been hiking with it for the last month.  It is not very ideal as it is hard to get to my camera equipment.

Atlas Adventure Backpack

I decided I needed to get a real camera bag with room for boots clothing etc.  I started researching.... 

I looked at the F-Stop series and I like the packs but they have ICUs which are purchased separate.  This is what holds your camera gear and there are 3 or 4 different sizes.  Depending on how much gear you are taking and how much space you need for other things as to which one you want to use.  By the time you add all of that, it is a very expensive backpack.

I also looked at LowePro.  I have several of their products and like them but I was concerned about a couple of things.  First space to put things other than your camera gear and 2nd was the strap and waist bag quality - I need comfortable.  Still seemed more like a camera bag than a hiking bag.

I was recommended Atlas and I started reading and looking at reviews and I was very impressed.  I will probably create a review myself after I hit the trail a time or too.  It is a phenominal bag.  I'll let you visit the site to read all about it, but I loved the way it was made.  It is adjustable depending on how much gear you need to carry or other items.  It has great padding in straps and waist band and the waist band is removable.  It has a ton of greatly place pockets too.  I can't wait to try it out!!

Wading

I will be doing 2 days of hiking in water while I am in Utah.  I talked to the photo tour guide about what I should purchase and he recommended the following.  Once I have tried them out, I will report.

 


 

 

Waders

Water Boots

Socks

I wanted some "socks" that I could wade in when the water was not deep but still would protect me from the cold.  I looked at a lot of "socks" and these where what I decided on.  I will be trying them out soon and I will report on how they do.
