Packing Tips

With the NEW 2 basecamp model, you can pack as much as you want! You will always have access to your vehicle, so bring as many bags as you would like.

We do still encourage you pack to in waterproof bags and plan for all possible weather conditions. Additionally, it is helpful to have name tags on bags and gear. This help us get items returned to their owners, in case they are lost.
