Below are two complete Camino de Santiago gear lists, one for the men and one for the women. While walking the Appalachian Trail Chica and I dreamed up the next adventure. We both agreed a trip to Spain to walk the 500 mile pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela would be the trip of a lifetime.

Taking what learned from minimalist living backpacking through the AT we designed out Camino packing list to cover all our needs while at the same time allow us the freedom a lighter backpack affords. Here is our Camino de Santiago complete equipment list, along with a video explaining why we chose the gear we did and additional commentary about our selections.
