reason to purchase for the camino:

This is a lightweight backpack with a ton of volume which means you don't have to compress all your belongings just to get them to fit into your backpack. Even though you get all the extra space, you should consider carrying less than what the backpack can hold. You could even remove the top hood to both reduce weight and volume to the appropriate amount. This is a super comfortable backpack that has plenty of pockets on the hip while having the padding and air flow to keep you comfy on the Camino de Santiago.

About the gear list Curator

It's always good to know who is designing an optimized backpacking list since you should be getting information from experienced backpackers that have not only done wilderness backpacking, but also the Camino itself. There are distinct differences between wilderness backpacking (i.e. Appalachian Trail or Pacific Crest Trail) and then walking the Camino de Santiago. 

About the Camino Gear List Curator:

Caleb has hiked the entire Camino Frances in the fall of 2016 and has done many wilderness hikes along the Appalachian Trail, Superior Hiking Trail, Machu Pichu, and other smaller week-long treks. His hiking style tends to be a lightweight backpacker rather than an ultralight backpacker. His pack base weight for wilderness thru-hikes tend to be around 15-18 pounds rather than ultralight backpacking weighing below 10 pounds. He also does not recommend the base pack weight above 22 pounds. In general, the Camino is unique because you can cut out some heavy pack items such as a tent and substitute more hygiene products or clothing. The Camino is different from other thru-hikes since it has higher hygiene expectations in it's hiking culture. This list allows for a handful of luxury items and targets the necessities for a Camino hike. If you are planning on doing the Camino in the winter or the Primativo, make sure to read the description of each product to see if you should get it in those circumstances.
