Best Lightweight Backpacking Gear (Bearfoot Theory)

The excellent outdoor adventure blog, Bearfoot Theory, has published their quintessential guide to lightweght backpacking gear. Some of our favorite brands made the cut!

We've always loved Mountain Hardwear, and the list starts off right with a MH 50L Backpack & SuperMega UL 2 tent. Big Agnes is also included with their insulated Double Z sleeping pad.

The Sea to Summit X Pot, which we've seen on several other lists this year, is a new take on collapsible cookware. The bottom is aluminum for use on virtually any stove, while the sides are easy to clean silicone that collapses to a very small size.

Kristen also includes a water treatment and gadget section. Check out the full list on her site.
