Here is my complete gear list for the 2015 fjällräven classic in sarek national park – this is a 110 kilometer walk along the kings trail in northern Sweden. My group leaves the 7th of august and I am expected to be away for four to five days. I am packing warm and dry as the climate change has really been affecting the area more than usual this year as it’s been near freezing every night and constantly raining; on top of that there is still a bit of snow left on the trail. So for a summer hike I have a lot of gear with me, but this is a trail that you need to be well prepared on – even if it’s an organized event.

A quick rundown of the bigger items: 
Backpack: Zpacks arc blast with side pockets and front pouch – 560grams
Sleeping bag: Enlightened equipment quilt 20f sleeping bag – 663grams
Sleeping pad: Thermarest Xtherm XL – 650grams
Tent: Mountain laurel designs Duomid with net – 741 grams
