Why I Don't Stress About Base Weight

Base Weight is a topic you'll see backpackers talk about all the time, especially on the internet. While I believe it's important to find ways to cut the weight of my pack, some things are more important to me than being "ultra-light." I hope this video encourages you to find what works for you and helps you avoid feeling pressure to take things out of your pack you really enjoy just for the sake of having a low base weight. Thanks for watching!

Why is Arc'teryx so Expensive?

Arc'teryx is probably the most hardcore outdoor clothing company on the planet, but it the technology they employ really worth the crazy price tags?

Therm-a-Rest NeoAir Alternative???

Therm-a-Rest NeoAir Alternative???- DISCLAIMER: I said that the Naturehike mat weighs only a few ounces more than the NeoAir. This is a mistake. It weighs a total of 19 oz. (the seller on Amazon and on the packaging is misleading and can lead you to believe that the whole set is 19 oz. which is not true, just the mat is 19 oz.) See how it performed out in the field: https://youtu.be/yG_mKFwCMs0 The Naturehike Outdoors mat is 7 ounces heavier than the NeoAir, but it has many pros and I highly recommend this mat to EVERYONE who wants to save $100 or more.
