Learning to go Lightweight

It’s been 2 years since we started hiking seriously and our base-weight has dropped from 14kg (!) to 7kg. As we look to make more weight savings to achieve an ultralight set-up, we look at the learning curve we have been on that has helped us to be lighter hikers.


Final kit shakedown

In a last effort to get our rucksack weights down we had to scrutinize each item and had to make some hard choices. The result was a fresh view of our kit and hitting our 9kg target baseweight!
