Theresa and I have been into Ultralight backpacking for many years now, slowly refining and adjusting our gear to what works for us.
Our initial inspiration and bible on the matter, is Beyond Backpacking by Ray Jardine.
Ray completley re-thinks the traditional approach to backpacking and pioneered many seemingly crazy things – such as hiking with an umbrella instead of a gore-tex jacket.
We're going to dedicate many posts on this site to our learnings about gear and equipment, and also as a log of inspiring trips and hikes we've made.
Hopefully it will serve to inspire others to lighten up on the trail.
