Product Information


This useful book from Backpacker presents practical, reasonable strategies for everyone who'd like to lighten their load on the trail.

Lightweight hiking strategies apply to everyone, says master hiker Karen Berger: the less weight you have on your back, the more comfortable you'll be on the trail whether you're hiking five miles or five hundred. She's not talking about extreme strategies (such as cutting the handle off your toothbrush to save a few ounces). It's all about evaluating and analyzing what you carry, whether you truly need it and really use it.

Berger helps you strike a balance between comfort on the trail versus comfort in camp. Always, the emphasis is on hiking wisely--and safely.
