The Club takes travelling in the backcountry seriously. Extra precautions need to be taken as help may not be close by. Depending on the location and situation, a helicopter could be needed. You need to be prepared to survive the night in case of an injury, accident, equipment failure, or are lost.

This is a presentation with a more comprehensive list on why you should carry these things in your backpack.
Don't forget to bring a change of dry shoes and clothes for the bus ride home.
