A winter backpacking gear list for hiking on packed-snow trails in dry (low-humidity) climates.
The purpose of this article is to present three ultralight water treatment options for backpacking. We chose these three for their diversity and efficacy, and they include a chemical method, a physical method, and an electro-ultraviolet method. We included a video to demonstrate each technology in the field.
My personal recommendations for ultralight and lightweight backpacking gear for 2018-2019 – gear that I’ve used all year in 2018 that includes the good stuff that’s staying in my kit for 2019!
A summary of gear that I’ve used in 2017, and enthusiastically recommend for lightweight backpackers this holiday season.
