What to Bring to Hike a 14er – The Ultimate 14er Hiking Gear List Guide

What to Bring to Hike a 14er – The Ultimate 14er Hiking Gear List Guide

There are a lot of incredible and challenging hikes in North America, but few compare to the exhilarating experience of climbing to the top of one of the tallest mountains in the United States. In American mountaineering circles, the name for mountain peaks with an elevation of over 14,000 feet (or 4,267 meters) is a “fourteener”. For many hiking and climbing enthusiasts, getting to the top of these incredible peaks has a magnetic-like allure. Not only is it a personal challenge to conquer these difficult alpine trails, but the views and the experiences along the way are things you will never forget. However, as beautiful and amazing as it is to tackle a fourteener, these trails are not for the faint of heart. Each year, hikers pay the ultimate price in their conquest to tackle one of these mountains. Many times, it is because they were unprepared for the challenges they would face on the trail. To put you in the best possible position to succeed in your quest to conquer one of America’s 96 fourteeners, I have created this fourteener hiking gear list to help you make sure you are prepared.

My KÜHL Konfidant Air Pants Review for Hikers and Climbers

In this KÜHL Konfidant Air Pants review, I am going to give you my feedback on how well these pants performed for me during one of my most recent outdoor adventures. I took these pants on a 6-mile hike on one of Wisconsin’s most difficult hiking trails that required a great deal of rock scrambling and even some rock climbing. I will discuss my thoughts on the comfort, durability, performance, fit, and cost of these pants. Using these metrics, I will explain what I really liked about these pants, as well as where I think the pants fell a bit short of my expectations.
