Description

When it was first published in 1998, The Backpacker''s Field Manual set the standard for comprehensive backpacking books. Now exhaustively updated to offer a more complete view of backpacking today, it covers the latest developments in gear—such as Global Positioning Systems and ultralight hiking equipment—first aid, and Leave No Trace comping, and includes a chapter devoted to outdoor leadership resources and basics. Beginners and experienced hikers alike will find this book indispensable for trip planning strategies and also as a quick reference on the trail for:

BACKCOUNTRY SKILLS—how to forecast the weather, identify trees, bear-proof your campsite, wrap an injured ankle, and more--illustrated with more than 100 line drawings.

TRICKS OF THE TRAIL—time-tested practical lessons learned along the way

GOING ULTRALIGHT—downsizing suggestions for those who want to lighten up

Every traveler knows that space in a backpack is limited, so on your next trip, carry the only guide you''ll ever need—this one—and take to the great outdoors with confidence.

As a novice hiker, I wanted to make sure I was properly informed about hiking and backpacking in the field and found this to not only be informative but it also opened up my curiosity for other aspects of the outdoors, such as reading maps, predicting the weather, and identifying plants and animals. It''s not geared for the bushcrafting survivalist, but it will help get you down the trail with the right gear. This is a prime resource and anyone looking for a good field guide to get started with, I''d highly recommend this book.

Very excited to plan more advanced adventures together.

If you are planning a backpacking trip, this book outlines the gear, food and clothing needed. It covers basic first aid and weather. For those wanting to lead a trip with friends, it covers most things that you probably won’t think of until on the trail and it is too late to change. I thought it was a very good book that covered just about everything one needs to know before hitting the trail. I found it to be well written and you are given resources to find further information should you want or need it.

Lots of great information in this book. Purchased for my son as I am introducing him to backpacking and this has all he should need to know to stay safe and have fun. Was a great refresher for me as I haven’t backpacked in over a decade. Information is organized in a way that makes this a good book to reference or to read from cover to cover. Has things I would have forgot to mention for sure. Very happy with this book.

I''ve been camping and hiking since I was in the Boy Scouts growing up. Great book, has a lot of the things I learned in the scouts and some new things I didn''t know too. This is the best camping/backpacking book I''ve ever seen that seems to cover almost everything. Great for everything from weekend camping next to your car to backpacking for a week through a national park.

Useful as a resource for the infrequent camper who loves to hike and camp but has far less time than he/she would prefer! This book is a great reference to take along as well, especially because of its compact size and the advice it has about medical emergencies and plant life. I would suggest anyone who wants to camp but doesn''t have their own Bear Grylls along for the ride should buy this book.

This is a good guide to backcountry hiking and camping, with a lot of information and tips for survival and minimal-impact life in the wilderness. Of particular note are the sections on clothing functionality, different types of gear (such as stoves) and a very comprehensive section on first aid in the field that goes to a great depth, more than the usual first aid discussion because the backcountry explore doesn''t have help just a 911 call away. The humour is a bit dry and sparse, there are some errors in imperial-to-metric conversion (2.2 kg to the pound?), and some inconsistencies regarding leave-no-trace camping and hiking (for example, the book first admonishes you to pack out your toilet paper and tampons instead of burning them, then in the next section recommends using these items as fire starters). But in all I felt that I could trust the information.

What a great reference for the beginner, novice, intermediate, or experienced backpacker. Has a ton of very useful information, and it is organized well enough that I can find it all. Includes tips on going ultralight. Perhaps I should have bought the ebook to save space in my pack. Has it all from clothing to navigating to first aid to nutrition. I highly recommend it for anyone interested in taking up backpacking or looking to have a handy reference when you go.
