Specialized gear and skills makes ultralight backpacking fun for everyone! Our mission is to provide the best gear and to teach the best skills so everyone can enjoy the beauty and magic of the backcountry.
With an Ultralight Outfitters backpacking system, your loaded backpack, with a weekend’s worth of food and water, will weight less than 16lbs. A traditional backpack would weigh from 35- 50lbs. For many people, carrying a fully-loaded traditional backpack is an ordeal. It hurts! They have to rest frequently, and the distance they can travel in a day is no more than a few miles. It’s not much fun.
A completely loaded ultralight backpack is so light that most people won’t get sore carrying it. Backpacking becomes a “walk in the woods”. Movement is easy. You can walk further. You can see more. You have energy to experience the beauty of the wilderness, and no distraction from the peace the wilderness has to offer. This is the Ultralight Outfitters experience.
