Wonder how lightening your load can make hiking, backpacking, and climbing life easier? Maybe you’re carrying equipment for you and the kids, perhaps you’re trying to save your knees, or you just like the idea of traveling faster and further? What is “lightweight”?...Does lightweight mean skimping on the ten essentials?…Does it cost a lot to go lightweight?…what’s the latest in lightweight and ultralight gear? Learn how to carve 10%-50% from your pack weight in this class in an affordable and safe fashion. This course teaches the principles, strategies and product knowledge of light and ultralight backpacking 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 and gear to help you design your own individual system.
