comprehensive website index on 06/16/2008 20:17:27 MDT Print View

Hello everybody,
I am always excited when I find a new website with a ton of great information. In that sprirt I want to invite you all to add as many sites to this list that have an ul backpacking theme. It is my hope that what will be built here is a very comprehensive and close to complete list of sites for information that we may all find on the net. With that said I will try and seperate the philosophy/technique/gear site and provide really short descriptions for them. Please add any sites you are familiar with and try and stick to the site/theme/brief description to keep this all organized.

So without further ado

Information sites:
www.backpackgeartest.org (reviews)
www.ultralightbackpacker.com
(personal site with guys learned expierience on going lighter)

gear sites:
www.gossamergear.com (gear)
www.thru-hiker.com
(gear, diy stuff, and materials)
www.mountainlaureldesigns.com (gear)
www.nunatakusa.com (down gear)
www.seattlefabrics.com (fabrics)
www.questoutfitters.com (fabrics)
www.minibulldesign.com
(stoves and a ton of informational videos on youtube)

thats a couple off the top of my head add away please.

Granted, the descriptions are in Russian, but I have built a pretty exhaustive list of ultralight resources at http://www.legkohod.com/resources.shtml that should be pretty easy to figure out. Feel free to check your list against mine.

There was a similar thread to this on in June of 2006. I'm sure some items could be added to it still. If interested, view it here:
