This list is to simplify the process of getting equipped for your course by adding visual clarity on specific items as well as cheaper alternatives. This is not a packing list, you can find packing lists here. The most important part is what material the item is made from, not its brand name. In general, avoid cotton/cotton blends and stick to either synthetic fabrics like polyester and fleece, or natural fibers like silk and wool. Above all, shop within your budget and keep all receipts and tags intact. See if you can borrow gear from a friend or family member. In addition to thrift stores, bargain outlets like sierratradingpost.com, steepandcheap.com, campmor.com and Requipper are also great resources for finding a deal!
