What basic equipment do I need for an overnight hike?

What to Pack on an Overnight Hike

Packing the right overnight gear is essential to any hike that lasts more than one day. Three-season tents are ideal unless you are hiking in winter climates. In cold weather, you will need to find a tent that provides adequate shelter and warmth. Daypacks are fine for short excursions, but more likely you will need a pack with more volume to carry other essential equipment such as sleeping bags, pads, layers of clothing, water, and protein-rich food provisions.
