Learn how we prepared for and packed for the 3 days, 90+ miles, and 21,000’ of climbing that we endured on the 2018 Exo Mtn Gear Death Hike. Find out what we learned, hear stories from the hike, and watch the gear list breakdown.
Jake Saenz of Atomic Athlete shares the gear he packs for a 20-day elk hunting trip in Colorado. Jake establishes a backcountry basecamp for the 20-day trip, then takes shorter day hunts and overnight bivy trips away from basecamp. Jake uses the Exo Mtn Gear 5500 pack, allowing him to seamlessly transition from a large pack for multiple days to a compressed daypack for quick day trips from basecamp.
