Luggage and bags: We went in the 1st week of May. The first day it was hot. The weather changed overnight and it was cool to cold the rest of our trip. A good coat wouldn't be a bad idea. If you're going to one of the higher levels of Shasta by car, you might also need an umbrella (if it's snowing).
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Definately bring hiking boots/shoes. There's lots to see in Shasta, but a lot of it's on foot.
