@Wai this is such a fun question for us to weigh in on! I'm tagging a few employees who love to backpack and will likely inundate you with ideas and suggestions! @REI-BreeM@REI-EricP@REI-EthanS@REI-JackiH, @REI-JohnS@REI-LizH. And our community moderator, @REI-JohnJ, actually lives in Alaska, so he will likely be able to provide some location-specific intel! 

At REI, we believe time outside is fundamental to a life well lived.
