NMI Packing List
Following is a list of suggested items to bring into the backcountry. Non-cotton (synthetic) base layer clothing is suggested as it dries more quickly than cotton materials. Layering clothes for warmth is important. Temperatures on the island are typically cooler than on than on the mainland; be sure to pack plenty of layers. Bring two extra days' worth of food, in case the ferry doesn't run due to weather. It is recommended to have two water purification methods in the backcountry.
