The seemingly opposed goals of yearning for adventure and trying to maintain a career of sorts, a marriage and a community all compete for time and energy.

In college I started going on my first backpacking trips and fell in love with the outdoors. My first backpacking trips included a lot of suffering with a heavy pack which put strain on my back and usually gave me foot blisters. After graduation I started working for the Forest Service and started getting much more serious about backpacking and decided to start researching how to go ultralight. After asking around and talking to experienced hikers I decided to try out Gossamer Gear stuff. I now use Gossamer Gear products for my main pack, my bear hanging set up, tent stakes, water filtration system, etc and use trail runners instead of heavy boots and it has completely changed my life! When I was first ordering a few years back I found their website to be confusing and overwhelming hence the 4 star review, but I have noticed A TON of improvement in the website and customer service. Backpacking is way easier now and I can focus more on enjoying the great outdoors. High quality gear that's built to last and endure tough elements.
