What Should I Have in My Daypack?

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.


The following document checklist describes what you should carry, and why you should carry it.
