We all are looking for the ideal ultralight backpacking set up. When I saw this video of PCT Thru Hiker describing his 12.9 pound pack for the PCT trip in 2015, I thought is was worth sharing.
Makes you laugh when you read about Cheryl Strayed, in her book, Wild, when she describes a pack that must have weighed 80 plus pounds. I met her at book signing, but didn’t get a chance to ask her what the hell she was thinking. Supposedly, she went to REI and got outfitted. Yes, I know that not everyone at REI has a clue about backpacking, but I’ve met some really sharp, experienced backpackers.
Be light. Be safe. Be one with the pack.
