Owner's Note

After carrying a 55 pound pack several years ago, I was not only uncomfortable, including low back discomfort at the end of two days, but I had hiked only ten miles round trip!  I thought my backpacking days were over until I began researching ultralight gear. Using innovative techniques, safety, and today's latest cutting-edge equipment, I orchestrated the fast paradigm for full func-tionality and comfort. Whether you are aging gracefully or simply desire an incredibly low carrying weight with a full gear set to trek, this  website and new book will positively benefit to you.
