You should pack one expedition kitbag or holdall with wash kit, change of clothing, and comfort items, including a sleeping bag, and have your walking rucksack for the mountains. Try to keep your rucksack to 30l size or smaller... For a full kit list in .pdf format to print off, CLICK HERE or upload the file from the bottom of this page.
