We take pride in our ultralight hiking gear. They might not be so strong a durable as products made with sturdier fabrics, but we believe your world may look different when your load is lighter.
We hope you will come to love both the advantages and disadvantages of being lightweight, and enjoy hiking with our gear for many years to come.
