7. Rainwear. One ofrepparttar biggest killers inrepparttar 145388 woods is hypothermia, and it often starts when you get wet. Try to stay dry.

8. Shelter. This can be a tent, tarp or bivy sack. Just be sure you know how to use it.

9. Sleeping bag. Down bags arerepparttar 145389 warmest for their weight, but be sure you know how to keep it dry, or bring a synthetic bag.
