Part of the trick to learning about ultralight backpacking gear is knowing what is available. Did you know that there are Titanium infused shirts that repel odor? What about shoes with Ti fibers?
My love for Titanium led me to create this comprehensive list of Titanium Backpacking Gear.
I almost got the trail name “Titanium,” because of my love for Ti backpacking gear. But the name didn’t feel right, seeings how it was my bf who got me hooked on it. I’m still don’t have a trail name, but that’s ok. What I do have is an unhealthy obsession with Titanium gear. I like it because its durable, lightweight, sexy and super functional.

I love it that I stink less when I wear Vargo’s shirts! Vargo makes a Titanium infused shirt that is self cleaning and it repels odors. It is also fast drying and it weighs less than my REI Coop shirt.
You can check out Vargo’s Titanium shirt on Amazon, but for some reason they don’t list its specs.* Go to Vargo’s website to read about how they infuse Titanium into their clothing. It is fascinating!
- Vargo shirts- short and long sleeve (for men and women)
- Vargo pocket cleats
- NRS’s Kicker Remix Wetshoe (for men and women)
- Runner watch
- Suunto Spartan Ultra Stealth Ti- Multisport GPS Watch
- Money clip
- Lanyard beads
- AfterShokz Sportz Ti Open Ear Wired Bone Conduction Headphones

I adore Briost’s Titanium silverware and chopsticks.* When I’m not on a backpack eating off of Ti chopsticks, I carry this set of silverware in my purse! To me this is the perfect utensil set; I like it that the knife is sharp, that the chopsticks have plenty of friction and that the spoon and the fork are not gigantic.
- Eating utensils: knife, fork, spoon, spork, chopsticks
- Foldable silverware
- Cook pots with lids
- Pot lifter
- Vargo Titanium bot hanger
- Bottle opener
I use to think that my MSR PocketRocket canister stove was compact and lightweight at 3.9 ounces, until my bf gave me a Titanium BRS canister stove* that weighs 1 ounce. Another bonus for the BRS stove is that it’s $30 cheaper then the MSR stove and it works like a champ. It boils 2 cups of water in 4 minutes at 1,500 ft. elevation.
- Canister stove
- Wood stove
- Alcohol stove
- Mixed fuel stove
- Stove windscreens
- Sake flask
- Liquor flask
- Water bottles
- Lots of other Ti bottles
- French press
- Pour over coffee filter
- Tea filter
D-FantiX makes a locking 2″ carabiner.* I use this 4.1 gram carabiner for hanging my bear bag, because it can hold up to 50 pounds! For my bear bag, I tie one end of the 50 foot rope to the carabiner and the other end to this orange storage bag. It is so much easier throwing this bag when I have a rock in it. There’s nothing like throwing a rock.
- Pocket knife
- Grappling hook
- Mechanical pencil
- Waterproof capsule
- Fire starters
- Flint lighter
- Key chain tool
- Vargo Dig Dig Tool (trowel/snow tent stake)
