Talk: Lightweight Backpacking for Women

Have you ever thought to yourself, "why am I carrying 40lbs for a weekend backpack trip?" Are you worried that you can't afford to buy lighter gear?

If you have any of these concerns, then please join Gossamer Gear Trail Ambassador Heather Knight for an evening discussion on the principles of lightweight backpacking, gear selection, and creative ways to go light on a budget.

We will help you get ready for your Next Adventure and give you the confidence you need to hit the trials!
