Hiking/Backpacking

So I have a customer who is a overnight hiker. He has hiked several segments of the Appalachian Trail. My cousins have talked about trying it in the future. So I have been acquiring gear required to hike and do overnight backpacking. I now have the basics, enough to give it a try. Most likely I will do a overnight hike in Western PA to test out my equipment. I am sure there will be other items that will be needed for convenience.

So far I have :

A backpack
Tent
Portable Bruner
Water purification device
Insulated self inflating sleeping bag pad
Sleeping bag

Total weight so far is about 18 pounds .
Have you tried it? Thought about trying it? Experienced and can suggest other items that would be helpful purchase?

Insect Spray or Wipes, Today's self heating MRE's aren't too bad , Flashlight and/or Fleshlight , Rain Poncho, raincoat's ( if you get my drift ), Likely other things that just aren't coming to mind at the moment

I trust you've considered a handheld GPS device (I like Garmin Etrex or similar)
And some kind of communication device to give you some hope in an emergency. If so, use Lithium batteries. They last FAR longer, weigh FAR less, and are not affected by the cold (depending on when you hike).
When I hike alone I carry a gps and an FRS radio that has quite a few miles of line of sight range. I then let others know the channel and subchannel code so IF they were to search for me and I was conscious I'd have a chance that they only need to get within a couple of miles of me, perhaps, to contact. Hey, it isn't foolproof but safety is important. Of course, weight is a major consideration on a long hike.

I should've added a headband LED light that is good for many hours! Mine will last something like 72 hours on low setting.

Yes. Some usual additions to the backpack.

Yes. I do have a Garmin GPS, compass and will take maps of the area. I will look into some type of emergency communication device, but I will not be backpacking alone. Also will communicate my travel plans and timing. Have the suggested lights . Thanks

Thanks for the extras. English English is my main language with an educational background in French during high school and a couple of courses in college . Based on that, I think I see a power bank for my phone and a first aid kit. I will translate the rest. Retired ski patroller here so I do have some first aid supplies. Always useful to have some first aid supplies.
