Facebook Hiking Gear Flea Market is a good place to start. You can put out feelers for gear you are looking for.

Gear Trade is also another good place for used gear.

Also, you can't be so vague if you want actual advice. Where do you live? How tall/weight? Where will you be doing most of your hiking/backpacking?

You're going to want lightweight gear if you're hiking/backpacking mostly, but don't get obsessed with the idea of lightweight until you understand what gear works for you. Here is a quick buffer off the top of my head.

Backpack - Size? How long will you be out? Best idea is to find an REI or sporting good place near you and try on some different packs. If you find one you like, look online for the best price.


Tent - Just you? Multiple People? Weather Conditions? Don't just buy the $50 Coleman because it's cheap, it also weighs 5x as much as something $50-$100 more. You might want to save the $, but your back will not be thanking you when you've been hiking as day with that dead weight. MSR, North Face, Big Agnes, TarpTent, Kelty, alps mountaineering, ETC. They all make quality tents, just look around for deals, yo.


Sleeping Bag - Down/Synthetic, what's the temp looking like? Too much variety here. Just remember, down will be lighter, but useless if wet. They make a lot of good down with water protection these days, but they can get $$$. Synthetic will be heavy, but can be trashed.


Mat - Need basic ground protection or something to also lock in warmth? Therm a Rest makes a variety of great mats. The SOlite and Z lite SOL are two great ones for the price. The more comfortable you want to be, the more $ you'll spend.


Cook Stove/Fuel - Will you be cooking? How much? Multi purpose eating utensil? Want something cheap, Amazon has these great Chinese made cook stoves with built in ignition that are super cheap They'll screw on to most mix fuel canisters that can be found at any sporting goods place.


Water - Reservoir (camelback), how much water will you need? Safe water sources? Filter/Aquamira? Dromedary if water is scarce? Sawyer Squeeze is becoming big and so are life straws. I personally use a Katadyn Hiker Pro, but its a bit bulky and heavy for lightweight backpacking.


Food - How long you going to be out? What is most energy/weight efficient? Packaging is bad, mmkkay. Break things down to conserve weight.


Clothing - No Cotton unless you want something nice to sleep in. Synthetic and blends. They wick and are light. Unless you're going to be out for an extended trip, embrace your backpacking lifestyle and leave the extras at home (Other than undies, bring an extra) Socks - Good socks are a must (Darn Tough, Smartwool are great brands). 2 pairs of socks, one to hike in, one to wear at camp or if others get ruined/too funky.

First Aid - Unless someone else is carrying one, always try to have one with you. You can make your own with simple bandages, aspirin, tape, wrap, etc. Or you can buy a pre assembled one online or at a store. New Skin is great for foot blisters, so is duct tape.

Random - Throw some paracord, karabiners, replacement clips and straps, a knife, bandana, compass (If you're in the backcountry), maps, whistle, and whatever you're favorite beverage may be (pack out, my friend.)

That's all I could think of in 10 minutes as a good bugger, hope it helps.

First off, your clothes/shoes won't dry inside a plastic bag. They need somewhere to transfer the moisture to. Keeping them loose in your sleeping bag is an absolutely awful idea. The moisture will transfer from your clothes to the synthetic/down insulation of the bag - effectively ruining its insulating power until it dries. If you are serious about going light, check out the quilts made by hammockgear.com. They are a good price and very light. Your stove options are either a light canister stove ( I use this baby at only seven bucks ) or to make your own denatured alcohol stove out of a soda/catfood can. Both work, and the stoves are easy to make. That will save you buku weight. For a tent, you need to look no farther than a Henry Shires tarptent. I personally like the notch and the contrail. Both are well under your budget, are incredibly well made and are less than 2 lbs.

Seriously you're not going to believe me because it's so cheap but this is what so many people I know use and it's as good as MSR or my snowpeak stove. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B004LUZCQM/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_nS_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=1X1WUM5HL2863&coliid=I22XM0G3205ID3&psc=1

If I was starting over I'd get this for sure.

There can be quite a huge difference in pricing between stuff you know came from China and stuff that has a brand name that came from China. The function is the same, the materials are largely the same. The difference is the brand name mark-up. At that price I'd buy one just to test it.

This one, it's even less now.

For cooking, it depends on what style of camping you're doing. The pocket rocket is great for backpacking because it compromises ease of use for size and weight. If you decide to go that route, you can get a similar stove for cheaper. They're also on eBay and sites like dealextreme, just search "3.9oz stove". But if you're car camping, where weight and size aren't big concerns, there are better stoves for that.

The standard Coleman 2-burner is great. The difference is that you get a more stable platform and two burners at the same time, to cook a more complex meal. Also, you don't have to be careful about shaking your pan or setting it down carefully (worrying about knocking over the a pocket rocket-style stove). The Coleman is expensive but anything like that would be good (something sturdy). You can also find them pretty often at garage sales, thrift stores, etc. That basic design has been around for decades, and they're simple and well built so they usually last.

Campfire cooking works, but it's hard to get the right heat in the right spot, control the heat level over time, fashion something to hold your pots/pans over it, etc.

A good starter peak to camp on is Timber Mountain. There is a broad flat area just North-East of the summit that is perfect for camping. It's a shorter hike than Cucamonga but starts at the same trailhead (Icehouse Canyon).

Columbine Spring used to be reliable but last time I was there (a few months ago) it was barely a trickle. So you would likely need to pack all your water with you.

As for a stove I've been using the same cheap $7 backpacking stove from Amazon for years. I recommend it to anyone just starting out since it is cheap and you can start to get a feel for what you want to cook when you backpack. Then later you can always upgrade to a JetBoil or Pocket Rocket and keep your first stove as a backup.

I've got half a dozen different stoves and a soda can side-burner alcohol stove was still what I preferred to use on my last trip. The only real downside is that it consumes a decent volume of fuel. For a 3 day/2 night trip I bring a full 8 oz to cook 2 freeze dried dinners and hot drinks in the morning.

Another great budget alternative are these imported canister stoves. I bought two just in case they were unreliable, but so far, they've been absolutely great. No worse than a MSR Pocket Rocket or Snow Peak GigaPower.

An expedition stove with fuel bottle and pump - the kind you need to prime - I'll ONLY bring that for snow camping. It's just not worth the size, weight, and hassle to light.

My favorite thing about alcohol stoves is that they're so quiet and peaceful. There's really something to the name of the site zenstoves.net (by the way, for backpacking/boiling water, I recommend the supercat). If you get a chance, watch it burn at night. Looks amazing.
