Comments about National Geographic The Ultimate Hiker's Gear Guide:
I'm little by little getting my lightweight gear as it is expensive and this book is excellent for gaining knowledge in materials for clothing and equipment. The different sample gear lists n the back are great guides to go off of. The credibiltiy of the Author is what made be by this book initially. Andrew is someone to listen too!
