This sub is about people supporting each other to reduce the weight of their wilderness backpacking packs. It's a diverse community full of a variety of different kinds of hikers. From day hikers and weekend warriors to thru-hikers and triple crowners; what connects all of us is the desire to lighten our packs. Our general approach is to reflect on what we take and ask ourselves the question: Do I really need that?

Golden Rule:

Much like /r/Hammocks, the don't be a dick rule is enforced here. What is this rule? It's pretty simple: Don't be a dick. Break it and you get banned. this is the only rule we have here. Disagreements, debates, even arguments are OK but keep it civil.
