Well, as some of you will know by now I have been chosen (along with Hendrik) to represent Gossamer Gear on this side of the Atlantic. Acting as Trail Ambassadors we will be working with Gossamer Gear to promote lightweight and ultralight backpacking as well as helping with the design, testing and promotion of their products. As I often review equipment on this blog I thought it only fair to inform my readers of this development. I am under no obligation to use their products exclusively and I'm encouraged to feedback to Gossamer Gear with all my views on their products. You can check out all their products, as well as gain loads of good tips on how to go lighter and simpler in the wilderness by visiting their all-new web site here.
I have been using several Gossamer Gear products extensively during the past seven months including the SpinnTwin tarp, LT4 hiking poles (which I reviewed here) and the Gorilla, their lightweight mid-sized backpack (review upcoming). All these products are designed in the hot and humid American Southwest and it will be interesting to see how they cope with the cold and rain of the west coast of Norway.
I look forward to working with Gossamer Gear in the future and thank them for this opportunity to work with like-minded folk with a passion for lightweight wilderness travel.
