The SteriPen Freedom with its 75 grams is currently the lightest UV pen from SteriPen. We will use this UV pen in combination with a ceramic water filter to clean the water from possible viruses as well.

Ortlieb Document Case Review

When you go hiking, backpacking, packrafting or plan any other activities in the backcountry then it’s good to have a document case with you to protect your paper map. In this case the Ortlieb Document Case A4 is my map case to go and here is a short review. Before I had a Haglöfs map case but the Ortlieb seems to be lighter. Beside the map you can also store other small items in the document case e.g. a small compass or brochures.

Montbell U.L. Down Parka Review

The Montbell U.L. Down Parka seems to be a perfect addition if you are planning to use a quilt instead of a sleeping bag during spring, summer and autumn. The down parka is super light and has a 800 fill. It also features a DWR treatment, YKK zippers and an adjustable hood. This is my current down jacket on my hiking, backpacking and other backcountry trips and here comes a short review.

Laufbursche Huckepack hp450

I was searching for a new ultralight backpack for my hiking, backpacking and packrafting trips and came across the Laufbursche Huckepack which is manufactured in Germany and here comes a short review. The 450 grams and 40/52l Laufbursche Huckepack seems to be a perfect solution for a UL backpack and its’ quality seems to be good too. It’s also possible to have a custom made backpack as you can see in the pictures below. I chose a material which is slightly more heavy but more durable.
