• Ultralight Backpacking Gear List & Presentation Slides

    Click HERE to download an Excel spreadsheet of Karl's latest Ultralight Backpacking Gear List.  Those with Excel skills can modify the downloaded spreadsheet to produce their own Gear List.

    The Gear List is essentially what Karl uses for his backpacking adventures including hiking the 500 mile Colorado Trail in 2021. The base weight of his backpack (excluding food and water) is 13 pounds.
