We we offer our Backpacking Bootcamp classes, the most asked question is: How to I reduce my pack weight? All to often it’s your sleeping system, and food. Here is a great video from¬†Sierra Trading Post¬†that explains how to reduce your pack weight.

Reducing your pack weight can greatly increase your comfort out on the trails. While many tips for saving weight relate to what’s in your pack, this tip relates to simply knowing the trail that you’re hiking. Knowing the trail can help you significantly reduce the water weight in your pack, and it will also help you have a more enjoyable time backpacking.
