Operation Aqua Terra: Chris Whitney Loadout

Operation Aqua Terra is an annual trip that we go on to fully immerse ourselves in the environment. We use the trip as a way to test and use gear in a number of different conditions including hiking, climbing, swimming and more in one river canyon area by the Central Californian Coast. One of the requirements of this particular outing is that all of our gear has to be kept dry while immersed in the river.

Below you can see Chris Whitney's loadout for this annual trip.
