    Solid watertight boots: Sacking up for good footwear was a game changer for me. No more bad feet.

    Solid shelter: I have basically gotten rid of anything that's considered 3-season. I have nothing but Mids and a 4 season worthy 3 pole tent.

    In-Reach: This has made my home life 200% better.

    The "do it all" packs: I know it isn't required to get the job done, but I love the simplicity of having everything I need to keep me alive and get the job done every time I hit the woods.

    Trekking Poles: I never leave home without. Most of my shelters and tarps use them. I think I get double the miles with them vs without before I wear out.

    Honorable Mention: AGC Bino Harness, Gaiters, GPS,

    What never leaves my pack: lighter, knife, rope, head lamp. Add the pack and that’s 5.
