12 Steps to a Lighter Pack is written by an avid outdoorsman, for those interested in lightweight, as well as ultralight backpacking and trying to shave some weight from their packs. Steven, who has been camping since he was a child, offers real-world tips on how to look at your gear from a different point of view from what you might be used to. Inside, are some tips on how to pack a little bit lighter. The tips here can help you to relieve at least three pounds from your pack – and maybe more. The tips listed here are not tips he simply recommends; they are tips that he himself practices within his own pack. There are 12 steps within this book. If you can shave just four tiny little ounces in each of the 12 steps, you can shave 48 ounces from your pack. 48 ounces divided by 16 ounces in a pound is THREE POUNDS of weight that you will have shaved from your pack. Whether you are planning a multiple day backpacking trip, or packing your day pack because you are planning on hiking for just a few hours one day, you still need to be aware of the items you are carrying as well as the weight of those items. Steven offers tips on how to cull some weight from several areas of your pack but here are just four: your pack -- your kitchen -- your shelter system -- and even your pockets... Yes, Steven even looks into your pockets to help you pack light. For a closer look at the full list of steps, scroll up and click on the cover to look inside.
