We all have luxury ultralight backpacking items, but which are mine? I’ve been tagged by Cam Hikes to create my addition to the viral video topic of what other luxury items long distance hikers have in their kit list.
Some poeple have items such as down booties, inflatable pillows, portable speakers and many other things, but for me, my most luxurious items are my Canon M50 mirrorless camera, my Rode Video Micro directional microphone, my DJI Mavic Air Drone, as well as my Katabatic Gear 30 degree down sleeping quilt and my MSR Pocket Rocket 2 stove.
Many people decide to cold soak instead of taking stoves, some use sleeping bags instead of quilts, some don’t use drones or big cameras and instead go for just their phone or a small compact.
So I consider these items to be luxury items in my UL backpacking gear list because they’re on the pricier side of hiking gear, they’re lightweight for the quality and not all hikers carry them.
