I love Osprey packs and this one is one of their best. It's a bit small for backpacking for several days or more but it is perfect for either a child or teen that is coming along or if you are going lightweight and have your base down to 15-20 lbs and just going for a couple of nights. The weight is tough to beat for a fully framed backpack and although the small buckles and lightweight materials look delicate, I've been using mine for a few years and other than some dirt smudges, it is in great condition. A great pack!

I've owned this tent for about 6 years and can tell you it is a great tent. I am 6 ft, 240 lbs and I have 3 teenage sons, one that is 6 ft tall as well, and the tent is spacious, a breeze to set up, holds 2 backpacks in each vestibule, and divided up among us, not unreasonable in its weight to hike with. The price is tough to beat. We've been sheltered up through some awful storms, including heavy hail, in the mountains and the tent held up perfectly. It's too heavy to carry for 2-3 hikers but if you need shelter for 4 hikers, this is a good way to go.

This is a VERY light jacket and part of the weight savings comes from a slim cut and shorter length than most jackets. Also a weight savings was realized by putting mesh inserts under the arms instead of pit-zips. I'm a big guy so I found the jacket cut more slim than I would like but doable as long as I don't have anything other than a light baselayer on underneath. Also the hood is cut huge, so a baseball cap or some other hat is needed under the hood if you plan on cinching the hood tight around your face due to wind or rain.

This is a great, easy-to-read book for those that want to make sure they have all of their bases covered when it comes to droppin' weight and hiking light.

The illustrations are fun and the text is kept non-technical but packed with valuable tips. If someone does what is recommended in this book, they will be 99% of the way to hiking with a pack at 15-25 lbs, depending on the length and location of your trip.
