About This Site
This site was created to serve as a destination for those researching the best lightweight sleeping bag for their backpacking adventures. There are so many choices on the market today that many people are frankly confused about which one to select. The purpose of this site is to help educate people on the various aspects of lightweight sleeping bags so they are empowered with everything they need.
I’ve been an avid outdoor enthusiast for my entire life. I was blessed because my family instilled a love for camping, fishing, backpacking and hiking when I was a child that carried over into my adult years. I’ve had the privelage of taking my family to many of the National Parks in the United States.
Like most people who begin backpacking I brought everything but the kitchen sink with me when venturing outdoors. Over the years I’ve realized how much more I was able to enjoy backpacking when my pack contained less stuff. As a result I’ve been replacing unnecessary and heavy gear with those items that serve multiple uses and weigh a lot less.
On the continuum scale of light and ultralight adventurers I’m one who’s firmly in the lightweight category. I’ll never be a minimalist and may eventually end up some where close to the ultralight category.
Currently I’m training for section hiking the Pacific Crest Trail from just north of Sonora Pass down into Tuolumne Meadows. While I’d love to complete the entire trail at one time there is no way I can do so and still put food on the table for my loved ones.
If you backpack and hike in Southern California hopefully we can connect on one of the many trails available.
