Why I Don’t Stress About Base Weight

Published on March 23, 2018

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!
