Backpacking Gear Class

  • Jan 15, 2014 · 7:30 PM
  • Felix's Place

Are you interested in lowering your gear weight for backpacking? We will go over my gear, why I chose specific stuff, and other options in different weight classes.

If you have experience backpacking and want to demo and talk about your gear, we can do that as well, and I encourage that. We'll go through each category, discuss options and look at the various solutions we like.

IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO DEMO YOUR GEAR, please comment here we can arrange that.

Feel free to bring your gear and we can talk about stuff and answer questions.

    Sorry, I live in Sunnyvale and might not be able to leave work early today to reach Felix's place on time. Would be great if someone could make a video of the demo and share with other group members.

    I plan to start backpacking this year (that makes me a novice) and need to know what gear I should buy and why. Is this event good for me too?

      yes, i'd say it's ideal for you to get an idea of what to buy and what things cost.

    Please bring your gear if you want. We can talk about our gear, answer questions, etc... If you'd like to help me in demo'ing gear, please let me know. So far it's just me showing my stuff. We can use my stuff as a guideline and then talk about each family of items and other options.

    EXCITED! Cya there.
