    Luggage and bags: A good rucksack or fastenable satchel is a must. Make sure you have several pockets to keep things seperate.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Never try to go up Snowdon in Jeans and Trainers. Stay away from heavy Cotton tops as well, they take a long time to dry and do not breathe very well.
    Make sure you wear good walking boots, the higher up your leg they go the better. If you are going up during the winter months, a thermal base layer under your clothes is recommended, although this might decrease your movement and make it that bit harder, but its better than freezing to death. A scarf of Neckwarmer, a good warm hat and warm gloves are also a must, whenever you are going up as it is impossible to predict the temerature at the summit.
    If you are going up in the warmer months then make sure you are wearing a breathable T-Shirt. Sunglasses are also recommended.
    Also, remember that it is still Wales, take waterproofs with you.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: A good first aid kit is a must. There is nothing here that i wouldn't advise against bringing, you can never be too safe. Make sure you bring some form of attracting attention as well, such as a torch or whistl

    Photo Equipment: It would be foolish to go all the way up without a Camera, as there are some fantastic landscapes to be photographed.

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: A walking pole or two will make the climb easier on your legs.

    The pant legs go back on!

    Luggage and bags: A small knapsack or rucksack is essential when hiking Mt Snowdon as you should pack supplies with you such as water and food.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: HIking gear like good hiking boots, pants like mine which zip off to shorts are perfect when the weather turns warm. Dress in layers so you can strip off or add on depending on the conditions. I'm putting my pant legs back on at the summit of Snowdon as it was a bit chilly at the top.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Sunscreen is a good idea, I didn't apply enough and burned the backs of my legs, quite painful :-(

    Photo Equipment: Do not forget the camera or you will not get pics of the stunning scenery before you.
