Introduction to Backpacking Light - An Article Library for Forum Members

(Of course, start with Backpacking Light 101.)

What follows is a sampling of Member’s only articles (as well as a few public ones) that are accessible to those with a Forum Membership. The purpose of this list is primarily to provide access to some of our more popular signature pieces that give you an idea of the types of content that we publish.

We’ve selected these articles to give you a solid foundation of what we think are important pieces to the vast mosaic of lightweight backpacking information. We hope you find these articles to be valuable on your road to traveling lighter in the backcountry.

Keep in mind that this is a very small sample of the Backpacking Light archives, and as an Annual or Lifetime Member, you have access to our entire archive (nearly 2,000 articles as of October 2013).
