Trail Pack Essentials for Off-Road Lovers

Getting prepped to head out for a day of off-the-grid riding? Venturing out in to the wilderness in search of epic trails is one of the best parts about owning a dirtbike. I have always found myself encouraged to go farther and ride longer when I know I have my proper trail pack essentials with me. Read on to see what’s in my pack.

I would like to start by saying that there are FAR more advanced kits than my own that may be appropriate for certain kinds of off-roading. There are also very slimmed down versions and a more minimalistic approach to your trail pack. It is all about what is right for you and the type of riding that you do. I am lucky enough to get to ride with an awesome group of like-minded off-roaders that have a more advanced knowledge of trail-side problem solving and mechanics. I do my best and try to be as prepared as possible and as self-sufficient as I can be.

The  CONVOY HYDRATION PACK  from Fox Racing comes with me on every single ride. It carries 3 liters of water and has a larger pocket to carry all my other essentials. The waist and chest strap help to balance the weight of it so that it does not all sit on my shoulders. A hydration pack of any kind will help you to be able to stay out on the trails longer and stay hydrated. This piece is non-negotiable to me.

Biodegradable Toilet Paper… Ladies, ya feel me? I have a small bladder and I drink a lot fo water when I ride and sometimes you gotta make friends with a boulder or tree if ya know what I mean. I like to make sure that any trace I leave behind in the wild is at least biodegradable.

Spot GPS Satellite locator. This device is great for people that ride on their own and can also come in handy for an emergency. There are 3 settings and you can connect to your “in case of emergency” person cell phone. Setting 1) send a text to your I.C.E. person letting them know they you are ok, you can program a custom message. Setting 2) alerts them of your location and that you are ok but you need help or are stuck. Setting 3) is an emergency alert that gets sent to local emergency responders to your location by any means necessary including a helicopter. This is a peace of mind device that you hope you never need to use. Some people prefer a satellite phone.

Tow Strap- It only takes 1 experience of breaking down on a trail beyond repair and needing to push your bike back before you decide that this is a crucial tool. Basically you hook up your dead bike to your buddys bike and get towed back to camp.
