Paragliding and camping gear – Europe trip

I love a list but what I love more is a shared list. This is what I took with me on my last flying and camping adventure to Europe. The items I didn’t use or could omit have been noted. Add a few more items to this for high altitude colder flying or when flying in developing countries. I hope to make another list for that. A few of the brands are no brainers (like Anker) but you could mix and match with a similar product. Let me know if you want some Tyvek as I have heaps spare. Check out this link to see how versatile it can be.
