I tried to do an entire backpacking trip for $ 200 or less! Over the course of ten years working in the outdoor industry, I’ve had access to affordable, high-quality gear and been able to test and ask questions from the experts around me before choosing to buy. I’m so grateful for this experience, but I know that for many people, backpacking and hiking can be quite an investment. I challenged myself to start from square one, acquire all my backpacking gear and take a trip – all for under $ 200! If you have an REI near you where you can rent gear, I highly recommend that. $ 200 is enough to take an amazing backpacking trip with great gear if you have access to REI rentals, but for this challenge I decided to see how far I could get without renting anything. Watch the video to see how that turned out… 🙂 I hope you enjoy my $ 200 budget backpacking adventure!
