xxiPhone 6, headphones & charger
smartphone, camera, navigation, music, etc.
Yes! A smartphone is invabluable on trail. It was my camera, my journal, my first line of GPS navigation, my music nad podcast player, and a way to easily address bills, needs and communication while on trail or in trail towns. For hikers looking to disconnect completely from cell phones, consider them for their utility.

xGossamer Gear Liteflex Hiking (Chrome) UmbrellaSun umbrella
This umbrella is a godsend for desert hiking. It will protect you from the sun, will make it feel 15 degrees cooler under the canopy and will help you be judicious about conserving your water and your body temperature. I hiked with it all day, most days in Southern California on the PCT.

xxVisorvisor
Visors are awesome (maybe moreso than a full baseball-style hat) because your fae is protected but your head won't overheat.
33
xSunday Afternoons wide-brimmed hatwide-brimmed hat
Wide-brimmed hats are a brilliant idea for desert or exposed trails where canopy cover is minimal, like the PCT (not like the AT)
34
xxPatagonia Women's Active Hipster Briefs Underwear (2)underwear
This underwear is the comfortable, breathable and durable a hiker could find. I could wear it for my entire life. Having at least one (to two) extra pairs in your pack is practical for town days or just having a spare pair!
12.4oz
35
xxPatagonia Women's Barely Everyday Sports Bra (2)sports bra
It’s a good idea to always have at least one spare/clean pair of underwear in addition to one you’re wearing.

Shoes/Trail Runners
48
xxSalomon XA Pro 3D Trail runners (shoes)
Trail runners are where it’s at compared to traditional hiking boots. They are lighter, more flexible and responsive. Solomans are great for ankle support and stability which is especially great if you’re prone to roll your ankles (like I am) and for rough, rooty and rocky terrain like the AT is known for.

Pack

xGoLite Jam 50L packBackpack
This pack is aweome for an ultralight. But after hiking 1,600 miles on the AT and reaching Vermont, I tried on another pack with more padding. I realized I wasn't an ultralight backpacker and therefore the extra padding and weight of the padding was worth it.

This bladder is where it's at for hands-free drinking while hiking. It will also keep your water cool (when it's hot) or insulated (when it's cold) inside your pack compared to water bottles stored on the outside of a pack.
