Prehike survey for multi-day trips Important note: The form below asks for the distance between your iliac crest (top of hips) and vertebra C7 (base of neck). This is used for sizing your pack, and it can vary quite a bit even between people of the same height. Pack fit can make the difference between a good hike and a great hike. If you don't plan on bringing a well-fitting backpack from home, please complete this measurement before filling out the form. Fields marked with an asterisk are required. Contact information First name / Last name:* Preferred email for any follow-up questions:* Personal attributes Your age on trip departure day:* Height:* Weight:* Shoe size:* (Shoe size is requested as a precaution for search-and-rescue purposes, and in case traction devices are required for winter hiking.) Use of personal gear Do you plan on bringing any of the following gear with you: Backpack, sleeping bag, sleeping pad, tent, trekking poles? If so, please list the personal gear you plan on bringing and describe your level of familiarity with it. (E.g., "I use this setup for backpacking trips once a month," or "I bought this gear specifically for this trip.")* (Please note that personal backpacks should be large, multi-day pack, not a small pack for single-day outings.)
