First time IR trip in May. Does my gear list have any glaring holes?

Questions about equipment and supplies to bring on a trip (including reviews).

I never sleep in anything I've hiked in. Keeps
I wasn’t suggesting to sleep in the zip off pants. I meant to sleep in the baselayers and wear the pants during the day. Why do you need shorts to? I’m lost there. I guess socks are a preference thing. I’d dont feel the need to carry that many but to each their own.
I personally backpack almost exclusively in the shoulder seasons where shorts may be all you need some nights and thermals are required others. I think if I went during the summer I’d stick just with the shorts and probably dump the sleeping socks, too.
