Scoop and toilet paper: A light weight plastic shovel for digging “cat holes” is required in wilderness areas.Store sufficient unscented toilet paper in a zip lock bag along with a small (2 ounce) bottle of hand sanitizer (“Purell”) for hand washing.) Items you wear are not included in the above totals, nor is food weight (estimated at 1.5 to 2.0 pounds per day, per hiker) or water (which adds 3-7 pounds per hiker).the three heaviest things are your backpack, tent, and sleeping bag, so if you want to save a lot of weight invest in these items.The conventional wisdom used to be that external frames are for trail hiking and internal frames are for off trail hiking.Most of our hiking is on trails, but the majority of Scouts and adult leaders prefer the internal frame and these have become the most commonly available packs.There is lots of discussion about the proper amount of weight that a boy can carry safely.
A “backpacker’s pillow” is an optional added piece of comfort, or you can use your sleeping bag’s stuff sack filled with your fleece jacket and a tee shirt as a pillow case.
For extended treks the internal frame pack should have a volume over 3,000 cubic inches (50 liters), but less than 4,200 cubic inches (70 liters).
The larger the pack, the greater the tendency to fill it with non-essentials.
Waterproof Pack Cover needs to be large enough to protect items strapped to the exterior of the pack.
A couple of large garbage bags may be suitable for summer hiking in the Sierras, but if multiple rainy days are anticipated a dedicated pack cover is better.
