Less weight on your back is less weight on your mind, so shifting into this perspective gives you more freedom to enjoy your surroundings, immerse yourself in nature and develop into an efficient, mobile and versatile adventurer, the all round perfect nomad.
So, you’re asking yourself ‘what to pack for a multi day hike’?
Start to think about what you need to take rather than what you want to take. Can one item do what another item can and some? Does this take up more space? Does this weigh more? The list goes on. But shifting into this mindset will make your time outdoors more enjoyable, and your shoulders will thank you for it too.
Luckily, you don’t have to do all the thinking. One of our best recommendations for any adventurer wanting to be the most efficient, comfortable and versatile outdoors man or woman, is to ask themselves an age old question, Tent vs Hammock? Sure, the tent is iconic, it’s the first thing you associate with camping but if you’re on the hunt for a more lightweight and unique set up, then a hammock could be for you.
These days the backpacking hammock tent has developed into one of those ‘multi-tools’, that being equipped with can make your outdoors experience efficiently effortless. Of course, the tent will forever hold a time and a place in your heart (and in your pack). But for now consider pulling out the pegs and switching up the grassy patch for tree trunks. Here are some of our staff picks for the best hammock tents, and why we think you’ll love them too.
