We are heavy weight bushwalkers. Old school plodders who love solid gear.
We love a degree of comfort.
We love the gear we have carefully collected (and spend a lot of money on) over many years.
Our One Planet packs, down cocoon sleeping bags and all the other miscellaneous bits and pieces that make our trips comfortable and, well, like home.
We do hate sore feet, sore backs, the dread of throwing on a heavy pack after a lunch break. We also hate feeling exhausted at the end of a days walking.
Ok, where are we heading with this?
Why? Because it contains the most comprehensive and detailed suggestions and ideas for all of us to transition to lighter weight gear that we have come across. Yep, it is thorough work.
Lighter weight gear you say?
Yes. Well, maybe not as light weight and evangelistic about everything as Mark Roberts the author but it is well worth considering. Well worth a read, well worth thinking about.
We will be and many thanks to Mark for all the hard yakka researching and presenting the very detailed information.
Have you gone ultralight or even light? Share your ideas below, we would love to hear what you have achieved in reducing your pack weight.
