There are some additional items that can be brought to SFAS, POAS, and CAAS. Those items are listed on the Packing List for your Selection.
Check with the most up to date packing list and use judgment when bringing anything to Selection. Anything you are not sure of, be prepared to throw it away or in most cases, to leave it in your personal bag. You will not have access to your personal bag.

Additional Item Advice
- Canteen Straws. Don’t use the bite valves that come with the straw. Crappy design and they will fall off.
- Ice Bag. You will have the opportunity to ice your feet, injuries sometimes.
- Darn Tough Socks (Worth it!). Your feet will get wet, no matter the season.
- Superfeet insoles for your boots. Your feet will thank you. FAQ
- Solomon Lace Kit for Running Shoes. The only lace kit worth kitting.
- Multi-Tool, not a knife. The pliers are important for undoing knots.
- Compare Batteries for your flashlight and headlamp: article | image
- Headlamps. buy headlamp with a red and blue light. The blue light will make reading your map so much easier.
- Large “Dead Hooker” Bag. This is just easier than stuffing a regular duffle bag when you don’t have much time.
