AT Clothing and Gear from Alaska to Arizona – 443

Jake Ritter is an AT in Alaska, you know the frozen state.  Besides dressing in layers there are some really useful tips for cold weather gear.  Snow is wet so you have to plan for the cold and wet anytime your out there.

Bart Peterson is and AT in Arizona, you know the Mojave Dessert state.  Dealing with the sweltering heat, staying hydrated and avoiding sunburn can get a bit draining.

Here we discuss some of the favorite gear from seasoned ATs in extreme weather areas.

I have compiled a list of discounts for ATs so you can hopefully score some great deals as you prepare for your next AT season.

Got a favorite?  Let me know and we can add it to the list.
