For weight and durability and comfortability you can't go wrong with the Stone Glacier packs and their warranty is fantastic as well I've had hounds chew blood-soaked straps off and they fixed it with no problem and did it happily.
I put my own first aid kit together and stuff it in a Nalgene bottle so that way I have an extra place for water if needed too. I'm not going to go into my first aid kit completely because it's not in front of me but I will try to get to it later...
We've been using KUIU game bags of all sizes and had pretty good luck as long as the bones aren't sharp they'll last you a long time if you wash them afterward.
I always have two lights and a Fero and magnesium rod along with pyro putty. I used to carry vaseline and cotton balls but just got lazy and didn't want to keep building them fresh. Pyro putty seems to work really well. I also have some black beard firestarter that works well too but seems to burn a touch too fast.
I've used a ton of sleeping bags from Kelty to Big Agnes, to Kuiu to Stone glacier. In that order I've liked them all and don't think there's a bad bag in the bunch.
I use the Sea to Summit Pads they get better when the price goes up as with anything. Don't skimp on getting a good night's sleep buy the absolute best you can afford you won't regret it. They are tough and come with an inflation sack and that's pretty dang nice after hiking all day.
This section is so broad it would take days to cover it all whatever suits your fancy. I try to stay at max 1.5 lbs of food per day on a backpack hunt. Always have hot sauce and cream cheese you can spruce up anything with those two items, and Tony Chachere's brand seasonings singles season your game meat or your freeze-dried with it.
Depending on the type of hunt and availability of water will dictate what kind of coffee I bring. You can figure that more water = better coffee prospects... One must be properly caffeinated to hunt well!
I'm not going to go into huge detail here because everyone has a different body shape size warmth and this just isn't a one size fits all deal. Find a brand you like that is cut to fit you and is appropriate for the hunt you're on warmth or cool-wise. I prefer to use Kryptek for most of my gear due to what the company stands for the quality of the products and the customer service.
Everyone's feet are different. Shop around for what fits YOU and only you. Don't take any boots to Alaska unless you know they're going to work for you and your specific needs on that hunt. Call your outfitter and get a list of recommended boots for them and then find one of those that works for you!!!
There are so many choices in rifles these days with our technology that it's impossible to talk about unless one were to take days, weeks, or months. The simple fact is shot placement..... there have been moose and brown bears killed with 243's...... Is it ideal? No, but it will work.
As a general rule I like to see my clients with at the bare minimum a 270. The 6.5's are super popular too and work fine obviously but 7mm and up to .300 is better. Don't go too big or sometimes people do more harm to themselves than good with either the concussion from the gun or the recoil. Shoot what you shoot the best!!!
The Leupold VX 5's and 6's are fantastic for the price and hard to beat. They come with one free custom turret with your purchase triple check your data with a good shooting rifle and you can shoot out to some distance with some practice.
