Shop with confidence. If it’s not working out, you can return it (consumables, electronics, undergarments and swimwear excluded).
Really. If it's not up to snuff after you use it (a couple times) you can still bring it back. It lasts longer than 30 days, but not forever. We'll be fair about it.


The Backpacker's Field Manual set the standard for comprehensive backpacking books when it was first published in 1998. Now it has been exhaustively updated, and includes sections on GPS, ultralight hiking gear, first aid, Leave No Trace camping, and outdoor leadership basics. This manual covers trip planning, location, weather, route difficulty, permits, skill development, food and equipment, and includes a trip preparation checklist. Learn how to forecast the weather, bearproof your camp, wrap an injured ankle, and identify trees.
