Outdoor Equipment

MSR Wind Pro II Stove

The incredible efficiency and versatility of the original WindPro stove, adapted to burn inverted canisters for liquid-feed. The results are increased cold weather performance, faster boil times and a more consistent output over the life of every canister in the MSR Windpro II Stove. 

Example Hiking Boots


For Frosh Trip backpacking trips, you will need a pair of mid-weight hiking boots.  There are a number of options available from a variety of retailers.  Below are a few examples of suitable boots.  

Remember, hiking boots should cover your ankle and fit well with two pairs of sock (a mid-weight wool hiking sock plus a thin synthetic liner sock)
