LD hiking, rock and ice climbing, backcountry skiing, mountain biking, kite surfing, whitewater and sea kayaking, canoeing, sailing...Just got on the ultralight kick in 2009 when I asked myself why on earth I was carrying so much weight on mountaineering trips. In 2012 I started asking myself why do I size hiking boots like they are climbing shoes???
