FYI it's 'clickbait'. By making users/readers have to click on a new page they drive up their pageviews and can sell more ads. I agree, when I click on an article from an email I have opted in to, and see that it's another slideshow, I just pass on reading it. PAY ATTENTION Backpacker, you are ticking off your customers!

Has anyone noticed that the last few issues of the paper magazine have not had letters from readers?

Russell Evans

I agree with many comments here.
The web page is extremely slow when trying to advance from one photo/comment to the next on topics.
Who has the time to wait for these to load, then do the same over and over with each pic? You NEED to address this!

I call it a Mule Packer Knot.

It is a tautline hitch with additional initial wraps. It holds a little better on synthetics.

As a long-time backpacker subscriber and reader, the non-user-friendly aspects/formats to Backpacker's website and emails have been an equally long-time frustration. It would indeed be wise for the editor to take note of some of these comments and streamline these otherwise frustrating articles, so that we don't all just give up on reading them half-way through anymore. Consolidating the info on ONE page so that the reader could just scroll down instead of continually clicking and waiting for new pages to open, then having 15 tabs open on your computer. blegh.

Too many clicks, I agree norm after 5 min I give up too. 1 page articals are best!

Anyway this knot is a modified Noose, although there is bad stigma with a noose, I found it is a GREAT multiuse knot.I see it as being used & repurposed for good.

one of the recurring annoying things is the pop up asking me to subscribe to the mag when I already am a subscriber

The Backpacker website is so annoying. Navigating is a pain in the a*&%$#! It has really reached the point where you lose readers because of all of the clicking.

I agree with too many clicks......I would like to see the ENTIRE article in a single page....I have stopped looking at the references....great information,but too much trouble to get it out!!! REI only wants you to see so many pages as it is an opportunity to get additional advertising.
