6th Edition is not the most current, but is still offered here, discounted, until they sell out completely.
. . . most current is the 7th Edition CT Databook (waterproof, dozens more water sources, etc)
The 6th Edition is lightweight at only 3.9 ounces and pocket-sized, the CT Databook is the “Cliff Notes” version of the CT Guidebook. Users like carrying it and referring to it on the trail.
The Databook answers your questions, including: How far is the next reliable water? Where might I camp tonight? How many miles? Where can I resupply? Information is presented in an easy-to-understand system of key words and symbols, plus maps and elevation profiles for each of the trail segments.
The 6th Edition Databook was current for the 2015-2017 trail seasons. It pairs very well with the 9th Edition CT Guidebook and many users choose to buy them both.
Pocket Chainsaw cuts efficiently. Carry it in your pack and use it to help keep the Trail clear. Motorless, the four-foot chain has bi-directional, razor sharp teeth for two-way cutting action. Weighing less than 8 ounces and stored in its own small carrying case, the Pocket Chainsaw is easy to carry in your pack or on your belt. Use it when you encounter a fallen tree or branch obstructing the Trail. It takes just seconds to retrieve this miniature, wonder tool.
A little bigger than a paper shopping bag, it is sturdy and reusable. Folds nicely for storage. Includes a bottom stiffener and structured sides that keep the bag open while you’re filling it. Insulated on the sides and bottom, it will keep things warm or cold during your excursion. Zippered top closure makes it even better insulated. Handles are strong and sewn well.
