5. Plastic Bag
Minnesota weather can be very unpredictable. One minute it will be sunny, the next minute it’ll be pouring rain, so, it’s best to have a plastic bag in case it rains to throw your wet gear and clothes in. Additionally, having an extra set of dry clothes is a smart move in case you need to change after being caught in the rain.
