In this clinic, you’ll build off of the basics of backpacking and backcountry living to cut some weight off your back! Backpacking is a fantastic activity and can lead to awesome adventures, however, the heavy pack loads associated with it can be a little daunting for some. 

This clinic is here to teach you what equipment and variables to consider when looking into cutting weight from your pack.  We’ll cover several topics such as: necessary equipment, options for clothing and layering systems, sleeping comfortably, and alternative lightweight equipment and materials.
