FOUR STARS:


Easy Read. Lots of ideas
"Easy Read. Lots of ideas, especially if you are a beginner. It gave me a few new ideas to try out, which is half the fun to me of trying to get a lighter pack."

A Backpacker's Guide to Making Every Ounce Count was written by an avid outdoors man, for those interested in knowing how a Gram Weenie thinks. If you are interested in lightening your pack a few ounces at a time, this book covers that very subject. Steven Lowe discusses how he used to pack for a trip and how he learned from the so-called “experts.” After following their advice, he ended up with a very heavy pack and soon realized that there had to be a lighter way to backpack.


​A Backpacker's Guide to Making Every Ounce Count offers tips that may allow you to approach your pack from a different point of view, like cutting the tags from your clothes and cutting your toothbrush in half--all in the name of shaving a few ounces of weight.​
