Description

  • Ultimate Hiker's Gear Guide
  • Supreme long-distance hiker Andrew Skurka shares his hard-earned knowledge in this essential guide to backpacking gear
    and skills. Described by National Geographic as “one of the best traveled and fastest hikers on the planet,” and named
    “Adventurer of the Year” by Outside and “Person of the Year” by Backpacker, Skurka recounts what he’s learned from more
    than 30,000 miles of long-distance adventures, most recently a 4,700-mile 6-month loop around Alaska and Canada’s Yukon.

    Whether you’re a first-time backpacker, an occasional weekend warrior or a seasoned long-distance trekker, you’ll love
    this guide. Learn exactly what you need to carry – both on your back and between your ears – for all seasons and
    circumstances through a show-and-tell of clothing, footwear, backpacks, shelter and sleep systems, and more, as well as
    through detailed articles on foot care, campsite selection and hiking efficiency. Skurka’s practical and priceless
    recommendations give you all the tools and techniques you’ll need to hit the trail.
