Luggage and bags: If planning on doing a multi-day trip you will need a suitable backpack. We did the West Rim in Zion with a regular one but if doing the Subway you'll need a water-proof one. Most hikes in the state are day hikes and a day pack will suffice. You will need that for extra clothes, snacks and lots of water.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: A wide brimmed hat and sun glasses come in handy in this very sunny state. Long light pants and shirts are best for sun protection. Though generally warm during the day, the nights get chilly so you'll need a fleece, warm hat, and rain gear which doubles as a wind breaker. It did rain one or two night in the month we spent in Utah! Good sturdy hiking boots and padded socks are a must.
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Sunscreen and lip moisturizer. It's very dry here.
Photo Equipment: Wide angle for big expansive shots of the amazing Utah landscapes. A zoom for animal photos and a polarizer if shooting during the midday wash-out sun.
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Utah is a great place to camp and you'll save lots of money as well as find yourself closer to your beautiful surroundings. Bring a tent, warm sleeping bags, mats, and a camp stove and I promise you will not regret the choice.
