We don't camp in waxed canvas tents anymore. So why use a written list or clunky spreadsheet to plan an outdoor trip, when something far better is available? It's time to modernize your checklist!

When it comes to prepping for adventure, Packwise makes crafting gear lists, managing to-dos, planning camp meals (and even the grocery shopping!) easier and more efficient. Whether you day hike, backpack, trail run, hunt, fish, RV, or paddle, Packwise will help you plan your adventure more methodically, with less stress, so you can get out there faster.

Packwise beats other packing apps with more powerful features -- designed specifically for outdoor travel -- and a simple, clear design. It also has no ads or in-app purchases, meaning no interruptions and no paywalls keeping you from full functionality and content.


> Gear library
Maintain a searchable master list of all your gear, and quickly generate new checklists for each fresh adventure. And when you finally buy that new pack, you can then update it (and its specs) in all of your existing lists at once.

> Packing tool
Get everything ready to go more methodically, and never worry about leaving something behind. Packwise gets you up and running fast: it comes preloaded with comprehensive, trail-tested, and years-refined lists for

[ ] backcountry hiking
[ ] day hiking
[ ] paddling
[ ] trail running
[ ] car camping
[ ] packing gear to fly

Lists and items are highly customizable. You can sort items by category or by where they go (group and subgroup), edit weights and quantities, and attach notes. And, you can track the total weight stats of what you’ll haul!

> To-do list tool
Who will water the plants while you’re gone? Keep a handy list of every one of your to-dos before you take off. Packwise comes with a master to-do checklist to get you started.

> Meal planner tool
Plan your camp meal quickly and easily, and know at a glance whether you're bringing just the right amount of food. Plus, this meal planner tool even generates the grocery list for you! Simply assign food items into grocery categories as you make your menu, and then generate your shopping list with one tap. You’ll never have to double back at the store again!

> iCloud-enabled
Packwise makes it easy to back up all of the lists and meal plans you’ve so carefully crafted to the cloud, as well as sync them between all of your devices.

> Email sharing
Email a list to a friend to help them pack as well as you do!
