The second version (v1.2) of the app is available with some significant enhancements:
- Publish your pack to the web and share the URL with others for a virtual pack shakedown.
- Improved interface layout for iPad and iPhone
- Here is an example of the output in METRIC / IMPERIAL units of measure, that can be generated from the app, using images, weights and categories.
- See the Getting Started guide below.
I hope you enjoy and find some use in the app.
If you use this app, then please subscribe to the YouTube channel and follow on Instagram. Alternatively, consider making a donation using the link on the bottom of the page. It has taken a considerable amount of effort to turn a simple gear list into a full iOS app, so these actions help me a little by sharing content with a wider community. Thank you for your support.

Why use the ‘Back in Pack’ App?
The app originated from a desire to manage my pack contents for each of the trips that I take. As the trail and weather conditions, terrain and risk factors vary considerably, I required a simple way to build a pack list and assess function vs. risk for the trip. Ultimately with a desire to carry as little weight as possible to move faster and further.
What started as a simple list for myself has evolved and now provides functionality to support your backpacking journey through all four seasons.
