While wandering the wastes of the Internet this morning, a universal truth suddenly dawned on me, like an epiphany from nowhere: “Oh yeah — BACKPACKER makes magazines, too!” In the spirit of that moment of enlightenment, we humbly present to you our March issue, fully gorgeous and online.

You gear heads out there (I can see you behind all that ripstop nylon) are in for quite the treat, as March featured our uber-comprehensive 2008 Gear Guide, where you’ll find your ideal soul mate in backpack, sleeping bag, or tent form. Get ready to stoke the fires of your inner gear lust.

At BACKPACKER.com, we’re also going weekly with our free newsletter. Imagine, a personalized message from us to you, detailing all the latest and greatest hikes, gear, trips, and more. It’s yours for the taking — just sign up here.

We’ve also got some sweet new video footage from our correspondents out mapping the Continental Divide Trail. You know you want to watch it. — Alvarez
