Backpacker Magazine – Fall Gear Guide 2009
Your complete guide to choosing, fitting, and using essential winter gear.
Features Let your gear be your guide. Need to haul shovels, ice axes, or skis? Make sure your pack has the external pockets, loops, and straps to handle everything you need.
Size Winter means bulkier clothes, more food, and extra fuel for melting snow. Shoot for a minimum of 4,000 cubic inches–and be sure all of your gear fits before you commit.
