Backpack45 Gear – covers ultralight backpacking, packs by Golite and GVPGear, tarps, bear containers and more

Gear: We are including just gear we have personal experience with, and like.

REI – we get most of our backpack stuff there, and would like to get it all there.  REI is gradually getting on the ultralight backpacking revolution that has been happening in gear, but we still have to do some shopping on the net.


Based on my conversations with other backpackers over the last few years, ultralight backpacking is becoming widely accepted.  Most people know of Ray Jardine, Golite, etc., and are adding more and more ultralight backpacking components to their gear.

 Gear on Amazon or REI

You can now get a lot of top quality backpacking gear on Amazon, usually through their marketplace vendors. REI specializes in outdoor gear. If you know what you want, you can help support this site by buying through the Amazon or REI link. Type in golite on Amazon and you will get about 80 hits, or type in tent, then select by manufacturer, etc.
