GOOD INFO FOR BEGINNING AS WELL AS EXPERIENCED BACKPACKERS...BOUGHT IT AS A GIFT FOR MY DAUGHTER WHO THOUGH THE INFORMATION WAS HELPFUL AND PERTINENT
I always look forward to getting the next issue. Great Backpacking trip ideas and tips. Equipment reviews are very helpful.
I have been getting this magazine for nearly a year now and I always enjoy reading it. I have gotten great advice about hiking in areas that are close to home and far away and the trail guides are always accurate. There is good information including gear reviews and all kinds of tips and tricks that make your back country hiking better.
this is a great magazine for all levels of backpackers. From the hardcore trail-beaters to the weekend hiker, and yes, even the dreamers this is a great buy for some fun, informational reading!
