Walked with comfort 12 Oct. 2012
By Howdy pilgrim - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This book helped me tremendously in reducing my pack load and preparing for rain on the Camino de Santiago (France). I weighed everything! My husband laughed. I learned to be ruthless in refusing heavy items and eliminating "wanted" but not needed items. Even then found I packed a few things I didn't use! At 125#, I needed to get down to 10% of that for my pack. I think I did 17#. My co-walkers liked their ponchos, but I liked my light-weight rain jacket/pants and pack cover...and it really poured some days. Do not underestimate the value of packing as light as possible...it is so much more enjoyable.

Quite confusing book 7 Sept. 2012
By Daniel Widyanto - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
We walked the Camino last month (Aug 18 - Sept 6), from Villafranca onwards. The book itself has some information about the brands and items that you could bring to the camino.

The problem is that the writer never really certain whether you should or should not bring certain items. For example is the sleeping bag, which she said was not needed, but she also said that some places may not have a blanket and sleeping bag may be useful. So, I'm quite confused. The other thing was whether we should bring poncho or rain jacket. She offered good and bad view for both poncho and rain jacket, but at the end, it's not very conclusive for me whether I should bring poncho or rain jacket.

After doing my camino, I realized that actually there's two big differences in the camino. The northern part, near France, is very hot (up to 49 deg Celcius), and less developed. So, you could end up sleeping in the wild. The Leon - Sarria onward is much developed. All alberque have hot showers, bed sheets, blanked, and food is easy to find.

So, my suggestion is to get some guide on where you will start to walk, understand how the climate look like, before following this book blindly.

Insightful backpack trip guide 18 Nov. 2011

Camino de Santiago: To Walk Far, Carry Less
I've never traveled the Camino de Santiago but have visited Spain on a past visit and enjoyed the country's food and people. After this well written guide in simple how to pack, as well as what to expect on this trip was a joy to read. I have heard of this adventure from several friends in the past and always feel intimidated by taking such a trip. This book laid out everything one could expect from ground zero to enlightenment as a journey like no other. The writer clearly leaves the reader at ease and shows the love for the Camino. A must have backpack trip guide!

best information found so far on what to take on the Camino 19 Sept. 2011
By calvin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
As someone who is not a backpacker or has never walked the Camino this seems like a wonderful guide. Having an example pack list with the weights listed is great for planning and shopping for gear. It's useful to know how light things like sleeping bags can be! There is even a chapter that shows you how to save money by adapting everyday items into backpacking gear. I thought it was great that the author even included how to estimate weights of food and water that one would carry every day, since I would never have thought of that! This book includes every tiny detail of what to wear and what to carry in a backpack for the Camino.

money saving resource 20 Sept. 2011
By bailey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Wonderfully helpful book. Impressively thorough and well organized. Full of things to consider before deciding how to spend hard earned cash to prepare for the trip. The section on whether to choose a poncho or a rain jacket gave me a laugh, it also changed my idea about what the best choice would be.
