Books Info:

The Ultimate Hiker's Gear Guide free pdf For anyone who enjoys stepping out on the trail, whether for short jaunts in a local park or a multiday backcountry trek, this fun, colourful book details everything you need to know about travelling backcountry light and fast. Adventure-athlete author, Andrew Skurka, keeps his pack down to 5 kg (without food and water), and regularly logs 30-plus miles per day. "The Ultimate Hiker's Gear Guide" is sprinkled with vignettes throughout, making for a personal, inspiring, educational tome that might very well be worth reading for the stories alone. The book covers everything from determining exactly what you need, to a show-and-tell of an assortment of lightweight clothing, footwear, trekking poles, backpacks, shelter systems, sleep systems, and more.
