Backpacking Light Section Editor, Clothing Systems
Don Wilson joined the Backpacking Light staff as Clothing Systems Section Editor in April 2004. While hiking the John Muir Trail in 1978 he got his initial taste of long distance hiking and rock climbing and has been as avid practitioner of both ever since. His many recent trips with his family are among his most memorable. He aspires to hike very long distances with a very light pack.
