General Gear List

Rangers provides an abundance of experiences and fun; however, because we have yet to find financial sponsors to help us out, we cannot provide all of the gear necessary to accomplish this ridiculous amount of fun safely. Here is a fairly comprehensive list of gear that a Ranger may need throughout the year. Each Ranger will not need everything on this list for every trip, but having these items at hand (whether bought or borrowed) makes life exponentially easier when packing the night before.
