Websites

  • Backpacking Light: Wide-ranging source for gear reviews and ultra-lightweight backpacking techniques.
  • Outdoor Gear Lab: Detailed reviews and rankings of a wide range of lightweight backpacking equipment. One of the first sites I check if I am interested in a new piece of gear.
  • Pmags.com: One of my favourite websites for all things hiking. Practical, too the point and with a little bit of humour thrown into the mix.
  • REI Blog: Tips, stories & gear reports.
  • Section Hiker: Gear reviews and “how to’s.” Philip Werner, the site’s author, is one of the most prolific outdoor writers on the web.
  • Semi-rad: A humorous and often insightful look at the outdoors lifestyle.
