  1. If you only have room in your budget for one pack, this jack-of-all-trades can handle almost everything. When you make a purchase through our site, we may earn a commission. As great as having a quiver of packs is, there's a special place in our hearts for the do-everything pack: those Goldilocks packs that are big enough to haul weight, but light enough to make miles. That's the Paragon 58 (women's Maven 55) in a nutshell: Despite weighing in at less than four pounds, its hollowed-out aluminum frame and a hipbelt padded with 3D-molded EVA foam let it haul above its weight class. It's durable, too. “I don’t baby packs,” one tester said. “I throw them on the ground, sit on them, overstuff them. After trips in the Rockies and Colombia, the Paragon looks like it will handle many more seasons of this kind of treatment." Bonus: Use the hydration sleeve as a daypack.

  2. On short trips or epic expeditions, clean water is a must. Here's how to pick the right filter or purifier for you. When it comes to choosing a water-cleansing method, there are seemingly endless options. But what works for your favorite local overnight may not stand up to the challenge of an overseas adventure. Choosing the right one can be the difference between a memorable trip and a trip to the hospital. Before you pick, it's helpful to recognize that there are two primary ways to clean water, filtration and purification. Water filtration removes dirt, chemicals, protozoa, and some larger bacteria from water via a porous medium, i.e. a hollow-fiber filter. However, filters don’t catch some of the smaller bugs (such as viruses and smaller bacteria) that can squeeze between through their pores. Purifiers get rid of everything through the use of UV light, chemicals, or a charged medium. While filters can handle most of the dirty work in the backcountry of the United States and Canada, you’ll probably want a purifier if you’re traveling abroad.

  3. An inside look at the Dyneema-loving, ultralight-preaching manufacturer. You may see their products in our pages, but how much do you know about the small companies that make up a critical component of the outdoor gear industry? Here's a behind-the-scenes look at Biddeford, Maine-based Hyperlite Mountain Gear. This interview has been condensed and edited for clarity. Who: Mike St. Pierre, Hyperlite Mountain Gear co-founder Favorite Hike: “The Grand Canyon has been my home over the past three or four years. Last year I completed my section hike of the entire length of the canyon.” Inspiration: "[While working in New York's restaurant industry] I liked escaping the city and getting up to the Adirondacks or the Whites. But I found that what I had in my mind for products were not really available ... Stripped-down, watertight as possible, durable, and lightweight. [Those products] didn’t seem to be available on the market." Key Ingredient: "I came across this Dyneema fabric while doing some research on my own, found the company, called them up, and that was the impetus for the whole thing ... We’ve only ever used Dyneema. And I think there was only one other brand at the time that was dabbling with that stuff early on, but we were definitely at the forefront." A-Ha Moment: "[Nine years ago] in the Adirondacks I had an experience that helped legitimize the idea of the business. I parked at the trailhead, and I was 100 yards up the trail when I saw a ranger. She stopped me, asked where I was going, and was like, 'There’s no way that bag is big enough to get you out there. And there’s no way you have a bear canister in there.' And I said, 'Yeah, I do!' Her pack was three times the size of mine. She made me empty my backpack out. And she was completely dumbfounded: I had a stove, I had rain gear, I had a headlamp, I had water filtration, I had everything I needed in this tiny package." Durability First: “There’s still a perception out there that lightweight is not durable. And there are brands out there that built stuff that was lightweight and was not durable, and I think that left a bad taste in consumers’ mouths. I think we’re still kind of dealing with that, even if some of those brands have been extinct now for several years. I’ve always felt that you’re basically taking your house and everything you need with you into the backcountry, [so] why would you skimp on that?" Hands-On: “[The testing process] has always started with me. Usually I’ll come up with an idea that we’ll start prototyping. We’re more of a rapid-prototype [company], meaning that rather than doing CAD drawings and 3D models, we go right to quick sketches [and then] to a physical sample. From that point we can either use it or dissect it or do what we need to do. Once we have a working prototype, then I’m usually the first person out in the field using it.” Ultralight Advice: “Stick to the essentials. You really don’t need much to do this stuff. You need a lot less than what people think. I find that people end up trying to pack for their insecurities, and that can really bog you down ... Keep it simple, keep it light, and just enjoy it.” View the full article
  4. Fire up something delicious with these efficient burners. A hard-won meal after a day on the trail is one of hiking’s great, simple joys. And if you have a first-rate stove to help with the task? Even better. For everything from going ultralight to cooking for a group, here are the best stoves for almost every outdoor adventure. When you make a purchase through our site, we may earn a commission. View the full article
  5. If you're the type of backpacker who heads out no matter what the weather is like, the Tungsten UL Hatchback makes for a perfect traveling companion. When winds reached 50 miles per hour on a testing trip in Nova Scotia, that still wasn't enough to shift this tent. "This tent withstood a storm that downed a dozen spruce trees and caused the river to rise more than 2 feet," our tester reported. With 41.5 square feet of floor space and an additional 63.3 feet in the vestibule, you'll stay comfortable while riding out the storm, too.

  6. We used to have to choose between supportive boots and light ones. No more. These six models are agile enough for day missions and casual outings, but will keep your feet happy as the miles pile up. Like a lot of hikers out there, we default to trail runners when we're not toting big loads. But sometimes, when the terrain gets rough, it pays to have a little extra support to ward off fatigue (and twisted ankles.) These 6 pairs of boots split the difference, adding protection with minimal heft. When you make a purchase through our site, we may earn a commission. View the full article
  7. Save on this small-yet-mighty multitool. This slimmed-down multitool has everything you need for a dayhike or an overnight, all contained in a minuscule package. The Micra folds down to 2.5 inches long and weighs just 1.8 ounces, but it boasts full-size, spring-loaded scissors, a sharp blade, tweezers (attached to the tool, so you won't lose them), and multiple driver heads. Although the Micra won't break the bank it's hard to find on sale, so we're jumping on this offer: Grab it now for 17 percent off at Moosejaw ($24.95), and then read up on all the ways a multitool can help out in a pinch.

  8. From cell phones to GPS devices to headlamps, rechargeable electronics are becoming increasingly common on the trail. Stay powered with this strategy guide. For better or worse, hikers are relying more and more on electricity when they head outside, especially on long treks. Cell phones are replacing dedicated cameras and GPS units. USB-rechargeable headlamps are becoming the norm. Keeping satellite communicators functional can be a matter of life and death. Inevitably, though, batteries need recharging, and determining the most efficient way to do so can be a headache. Follow the guide below to easily determine how best to juice your devices in the wilderness. 1. Determine your power needs. Make a list of all the electronics you plan to carry—phones, fitness watches, cameras, GPS units, satellite communicators, headlamps, and the like. Consider how often your devices run out of juice with normal use. For example, note whether or not you generally drain your phone every day and need to recharge its full capacity, or if you only use about half the battery every day. Once you have your list, do some research to find out how much power each battery holds, in Watt-hours (Wh). For devices that let you pull the battery out, like a headlamp, this number is often printed right on the battery itself. You can also peruse user manuals or online specifications. If you can’t remove the battery of your device and can't find the battery capacity in Watt-hours, you might find a number listed as the mAh, or milliamp-hours instead. Divide this number by 1000 to get the amp-hours, then multiply by the voltage of the device (for smaller electronics, this is generally 3.7 or 3.8, but for larger ones, you might need to research that number as well). That final total is your Watt-hours. A sample power table2. Find the right power pack. The Watt-hours number for each battery—which indicates how much power a battery holds—tells you how much electricity it will take to go from a completely dead battery to a full one. From here, estimate how many times you expect to recharge each item during your trip, and the percentage of that battery you’ll need to juice up. For example, if you expect to use 75 percent of your phone’s battery each day on a three-day trek, you’ll start with a full charge and need to recharge it twice before the end of the trip. Multiply the product’s Watt-hour capacity by the number of times you plan to recharge it and you’ll end up with a Watt-hour number that is the total amount of power you’ll need to recharge that device during your trip. In this case, the battery is 11.91 Wh and you’ll use up 8.9 Wh (75 percent) each day. If you’re hoping to recharge it back to 100 percent each night, you’ll need to carry a battery bank with no less than 17.8 Wh to keep your phone fully juiced at the start of each day on the trail. Your phone it likely not the only thing you need to recharge, though. Follow the steps above for each device and add all the required charging powers to come up with a total amount of power you’ll need to carry with you. Then, pick a power source that has enough Watt-hour capacity to cover your needs. The myCharge Adventure H20 3350For shorter trips, on which a phone is really all you need, the myCharge Adventure H20 3350 ($30; 3.2 oz.) has just enough power (about 16.75 Wh) to top you off, without taking up any more pack space than is necessary. On longer adventures, the Goal Zero Venture 30 ($100; 8.8 oz.), with its 29 Watt-hour capacity, is enough to keep a handful of devices going for days. 3. For bigger power needs, go solar. If your power needs are greater than any small, portable power bank can cover, adding a solar panel to your kit is the next step. Solar panels are rated in Watts produced in perfect conditions, i.e. full and constant sunlight. However, because those conditions are rare, you should assume you’ll only get a portion of that wattage over the course of a day. As a rough guide, setting the panel up in camp without regularly aiming it at the sun will provide two-thirds of the rated wattage. If you’re planning on clipping the panel to your pack and hiking with it, expect to only get 50 percent of its full capacity. Use those figures as a guide to adjust the wattage of your solar panel, then divide the Watt-hour capacity of your power bank by that adjusted Wattage of the solar panel to figure out how many hours of direct sunlight will charge the power bank. For example, Goal Zero’s Nomad 7 solar panel generates 7 Watts and the brand’s Venture 30 Recharger holds 29Wh. If you plan to hook the panel to your backpack for a day, you may only receive 3.5 watts from that panel, which means it would take a little more than 8 hours on a clear, sunny day to recharge that power bank—and longer on a cloudier day. The Goal Zero Nomad 7Backpackers on the move will appreciate the size, durability, and simplicity of the Goal Zero Nomad 7 ($60; 1 lb.), which clips easily to a backpack and folds up small when it’s not in use. Basecampers posted up for longer periods of time might want to look at something larger, like the Nomad 28 Plus ($250; 3 lbs. with kickstand), to take full advantage of any available sun and charge power banks even faster.

Get it now for 35 percent off ($168.73) at REI, and read up on how to achieve the perfect backcountry slumber. View the full article
  12. This simple backcountry messaging device was a hit with our tester. The White Mountains of New Hampshire, my home range, are a rocky and wild slice of mountains despite their relative proximity to civilization. Their weather is legendarily unforgiving, and their trails rough. Having a backup plan if things go awry on a hike in the Whites is always a good idea, and that includes a communication strategy. On recent hikes up Mt. Pierce, Mt. Jackson, and Mt. Webster, where the notches and ravines of this area make cell service frequently nonexistent, I enjoyed the confidence of knowing I could stay in touch with the outside world via the Zoleo Satellite Communicator. Pairing the Zoleo with my iPhone was simple—with both devices powered up, just turn on Bluetooth and open the Zoleo app. This seems like a good time for a confession: I don’t use manuals and quick-start guides usually get a cursory look at best. This device is so user-friendly and intuitive that you could save the reading material for treating your insomnia. The check-in function worked as advertised and delivered an ‘I’m OK’ notification to my designated contacts, along with latitude and longitude coordinates. Delivery was completed within a couple minutes. I was also able to check detailed weather forecasts for my location. The device doesn't have buttons to send messages itself, save for an SOS button, it cant receive messages (communications are outbound-only), and the app doesn't include maps. But for the price—it costs $199 and has reasonably priced usage plans—there's no reason comms capability and SAR services can't be at your fingertips on every hike. –Brian McElwee View the full article

  25. Sometimes, products just don't perform as planned. When gear works, you barely notice it. The memories that usually stand out? The times that it doesn't. Here are the BACKPACKER staff's recollections—from funny to frustrating—of our biggest gear fails. A deflating experience "I struggled through most of my Appalachian Trail thru-hike with a faulty sleeping pad. Within a week of starting, it started leaking. I patched it, and then it started to leak from another spot. The company sent me another one that I picked up at mail drop location. That one started to leak, too. They me a third one; same deal. I switched to another pad after the third malfunction and never looked back." – Justin La Vigne, Testing Category Manager Lesson: Before taking new gear on a long trip, vet it on a smaller one. And, when a piece of gear fails again and again, it's probably not you. Well, that sucks "What immediately comes to mind for me is when a straw-style water filter failed during a long trail run in Rocky Mountain National Park. I thought I was smart going super-lightweight on this 15-mile loop, which had plenty of water sources. But it became so difficult to suck water through the tube I swear I pulled muscles in my cheeks." – Emma Athena, Testing Category Manager Lesson: If you're relying on one small piece of gear to do one big job, bring a backup. In this case, iodine tablets would have been easy to pack. Unscheduled fire drill "Thru-hikers love to sing the praises of homemade alcohol stoves, and I used a cat food can stove for a time. But after employing it as my main cooking companion for years, I think it's a third-degree burn or a forest fire waiting to happen. Once you light one of these things, they flare up like the Fourth of July and keep burning until the fuel runs out, unless you're brave enough to snuff it out with your tiny, lightweight pot. Stand too close and you melt your clothes; knock it over and you have a real problem on your hands. For me, it's Pocket Rocket or nothing now." – Adam Roy, Digital Editor Lesson: Lean on gear that you can trust for consistent performance, every time you take it out. Product paranoia "I received a gas-powered portable handwarmer as a gift maybe 12 years ago and I keep holding onto it, figuring I’ll eventually find its best use case. It sounds great, but I’m too afraid to stick it in the pocket of a flammable nylon jacket and wouldn’t dare put it in my sleeping bag for the same reason. Not that it lights things on fire (though it does work by combustion) but I think I’d rather have cold hands than wake up in flames." – Casey Lyons, Executive Editor Lesson: Having confidence in your gear is paramount, even if it's just a mindset. You won't properly use gear you don't trust. Herd instinct "Before our Pacific Crest Trail thru-hike, my husband and I rethought our whole backpacking kit from the ground up, including our shoes. We'd been wearing minimalist trail runners for years, but the go-to shoe for thru-hikers at that time was, hands down, the supercushy Brooks Cascadia. So we figured we should make a switch—no one on the PCT message boards seemed to think thru-hiking in minimalist shoes was feasible anyway. The Cascadia got its trial run on a 45-mile section of the Appalachian Trail near New York City, where we were living at the time, and it was a disaster. The increased padding and structure made it feel like we were walking on stilts compared to what we were used to, and our ankles rolled so many times on that rocky AT terrain that I'm surprised we didn't get a sprain. We switched back to minimalist shoes for the PCT and stuck with them all the way to Manning Park. – Laura Lancaster, Testing Category Manager Lesson: Don't just buy gear that everyone is going gaga over. Use products that are right for your body and hiking style. Less is more When my husband and I purchased our first water purifier for a 10-day hike of the Long Trail in Vermont in 2010, it turned out to be more science experiment than useful tool. You had to shake up a a salt solution to trigger an electrical current, pour this into your water, wait 30 minutes, then use a paper test strip to test your water to make sure it was safe to drink. Sometimes, I had to conduct the test multiple times because it was too cold and the device wouldn't work. We ditched that filter immediately after the hike (and it has since been discontinued). – Patrice La Vigne, Testing Category Manager Lesson: When a piece of gear presents a complicated answer to a simple question, you can probably leave it on the shelf.
