Backpacking Light is a membership community where we exchange information and education about hiking, backpacking, and other forms of backcountry travel.

Our Values:

Advocacy • Trust • Authority • Objectivity • Clarity • Inclusivity • Access • Activism

Ryan, Stephanie, and Chase at Pioneer Falls, Spanish Peaks Wilderness, Montana.

We started Backpacking Light in our home in 2000, have employed mostly friends and family, let people bring their dogs and babies to work, and remain committed to owning a company that values community – and a passion for restoring their soul outside.

We welcome your experience, your participation in our community, and of course, the opportunity to serve and help you as well.

Please join today and support our community’s efforts to help people enjoy a less burdened life in the wilderness – and beyond.
