Shifting to Lighter Weight Gear: Part 2 – Shelters

Part 2 in a multi-part series in which I discuss how I have continued to drop weight in my search for a lighter set of gear in which to backpack with. Here I discuss the changes I have made with some light commentary on my thoughts on the gear I have used throughout the years. Feel free to post questions and comments, and as always likes are appreciated. Let me know if there is anything you would like me to discuss in future videos as well. See below for actual weight of the shelters shown in the video. Thanks!
