3.0 out of 5 stars Some good tips, but nothing groundbreaking, 26 Feb. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Ultralight Backpacker : The Complete Guide to Simplicity and Comfort on the Trail (Paperback)
I got this book as I came to the realisation that I'm carrying far too much kit when I'm on the trail. I thought there might be some good field craft tips in this book and there are, so I'm relatively pleased. However the author is very extreme in his views of what can accompany you on a backpacking trip. I understand the philosophy of "every single gramme (or ounce in this book's case) must ear it's place in your pack" but going to the point of not bringing underwear is a little extreme for me. The book is also a little USA centric, and I think there's an expectation that you will only go backpacking when its guaranteed to be dry. So all in all not a bad book for the money, but nothing revolutionary either.
