Sleeping Mat

I use the Sea to Summit Ultralight sleeping mat. This mat can be purchased here *

This mat weighs 454g.

In the winter, I also use the Thermarest Z-Lite Closed Cell Foam Mat, in addition to the above mat, for extra insulation. I do not use the Z-Lite in the summer and only use the Sea to Summit mat in summer. The Z-Lite weighs 410g.

Sleeping Bag

I use the Thermarest Hyperion Sleeping Bag. The Hyperion is a 900 fill power down and is built to provide a featherlight pack weight and is among the lightest in its class without sacrificing the high performance warmth. Weight 570g.

The sleeping bag can be purchased here *

Water System

I use the Katadyn BeFree water filter, it seems superior to other water filters in terms of the flow rate and so forth. Weight 85g.

You can purchase the water filter here *

In addition, I take 2 x 1 litre water bottles (old juice or water bottles), this means that I have the capacity to carry 3 litres of water since the Katadyn holds 1 litre.

Cook system

1) Stove - The stove I use is the MSR Pocket Rocket. You can purchase the stove here *. The stove weight is 73g.

2) Pot - This is the Snow Peak Trek 700 Pot. You can purchase the pot here *. The pot weight is 136g.

3) Cup - Lifeventure Collapsible Cup. You can purchase the cup here *. The cup weight is 64 g.

4) Spork - Sea to Summit Spork. You can purchase the spork here*. The spork weight is 45g.


I use the Gossamer Gear Mariposa 60 backpack which I absolutely love! This backpack is very popular with the thru-hikers in America, it is one of the most loved backpacks and I can certainly see why - it is not overly minimal like a lot of the ultra light backpacks on the market nowadays, it has plenty of pockets and storage and it is super comfortable! The pack (size small) weighs 795g with the hip belt.

Day Pack

If I am only doing a day hike then I will use my Osprey Talon 22, I believe that this was the men's version that I purchased as I preferred the colour. You can purchase this here *.


I choose to wear trail runners rather than hiking boots, this is simply due to the fact that I suffer from various foot issues, including Plantar fasciitis and Morton's neuroma, I therefore find that trail runners with a wide-toe box suit me better than a more rigid boot. I have used the Altra Lone Peaks for a long time now and I don't think that will change anytime soon!

You can purchase women's Loan Peak's here *

You can purchase men's Loan Peak's here *

The socks that I use and swear by are -

1) Injinji Toe Liner Socks - these can be purchased here *

2) Over the top of the Injinji socks, I wear Darn Tough socks which can be purchased here *.

Down Jacket

I have two down jackets, one heavier weight jacket for winter and one lightweight jacket for 3 season use.

The down jacket that I use for 3 season use is the Mountain Hardwear Ghost Whisperer. This is a superlight and comfortable jacket weighing at only 220g! Please note that lots of people wear this jacket for 4 season use, you really don't need two down jackets, I just feel the cold so like to be extra toasty, especially when wild camping in winter! Plus, I absolutely LOVE down jackets, you know, how some women love handbags or shoes!

You can purchase the female version of the Ghost Whisperer here *

You can purchase the men's version of the Ghost Whisperer here *

The down jacket that I wear for winter use is the Rab Neutrino Pro Jacket and boy is this one comfy and cozy jacket!! This jacket weights 502g!

You can purchase the women's version of the Neutrino Pro here*



I usually wear a pair of Sweaty Betty leggings or any other old leggings that I have. I *really* want a pair of the Fjallraven Abisko Leggings, they are meant to be amazing for hiking and so comfortable too, so many people rave about them!

Baselayer Top

I will usually wear an Icebreaker merino top


My fleece of choice which I absolutely adore is the Patagonia Synchilla Fleece. I have two of these fleeces now.


For winter and for sleeping in when wild camping - Rab Power Stretch Polartec Leggings.


As general purpose gloves I use the Rab Power Stretch Gloves.
