2022 Backpacking Light Members Choice Awards

First annual Members Choice Awards – what gear do our members use and love as we near the end of 2022?

Merino Buff

For all of the benefits of the slightly lighter microfiber Buffs, we actually recommend the Merino Buff for backpacking in cooler conditions. It’s warmer and cozier for no additional weight.
