This course teaches the principles, strategies and product knowledge of ultralight backpacking and climbing to fit your personal goals, style, needs and trip conditions rather than taking the one-gear-fits-all approach. We provide extensive coverage and demonstrations of the latest clothing, gear and food to help you design your own individual system. We also look at innovative products from home-based gear designers as well as resources for making your own gear.
