Here’s my complete packing list of everything I took on the Oregon’s Big Country Route. It seems like a lot of gear, and it kind of is a lot, but it’s what I consider a basic pack for a long term ride into the back country. I’m always looking to make my kit lighter, so any feedback would be great!

I’ve linked directly to their respective sites but there are no affiliate links, no personal gain from this other than sharing what I use on my trips. Each gear was purchased by me. Most of this is taken on each trip, but it will sometimes be adjusted depending on the weather, trip length, and location.
