About Ultralight Packer

Why Choose Ultralight Packer?

Ultralight is my preferred way to travel when putting distance hikes in. I definitely feel each pound the longer the hike lasts. This is why I figured out the only viable way forward for me was to work on getting my gear super lightweight and, when possible, multi-purposeful. I try not to pack anything that isn't helpful and useful to the trek ahead.

We’re passionate about getting the most from your hiking attempts through correct gearing when it comes to going on day, section or thru hikes. When you take one of these trips you often need the lightest, most effective gear to travel as far as needed each day. This is where I feel we come in, to help you find the best ultralight backpacking gear for your hiking needs.

About Me

Hello and welcome to Ultralight Packer, I built this website specifically to spread information and assistance to everyone who likes to hike, from day hikers to thru-hikers. 

I grew up in Washington and loved the cascades and over time and life I lost that connection with the outdoors. Since my daughter is now old enough to carry a pack I have started hiking again and found out that everything is so much lighter and more awesome now!

Please join me and lets explore the world one day at a time!
