It is listed so you can see how much you can save if you are careful.
Most of our hiking is on trails, but the majority of Scouts and adult leaders prefer the internal frame and these have become the most commonly available packs.
For extended treks the internal frame pack should have a volume over 3,000 cubic inches (50 liters), but less than 4,200 cubic inches (70 liters).
The sleeping bag should have a comfort rating from 20° to 30° and should weigh no more than 3.5 pounds, but preferably less.
Note: sleeping bags should not be stored in the stuff-sack at home, as this will mat the filling, causing a reduction in loft, and thus warmth.
Kits are typically “personalized”, but all kits should include moleskin (for blisters), several adhesive bandages of various sizes, a few gauze pads, adhesive tape, and disinfecting ointment.
