To compress or not to compress? That’s the question. Compression caps (and compression in general…) are hotly debated within the backpacking community. Even the Zenbivy Team has opposing opinions on the use of compression caps.
Temperatures are warming and summer is just around the corner. If you've always wanted to try backpacking now's the time to get ready for a summer outdoors. Backpacking is a lot of fun, especially with a few friends, and doesn't have to come with all the struggle and discomfort associated with it.
Deciding what to eat in the outdoors stumps even seasoned backpackers, but having a delicious meal when you get to camp can take your trip to the next level. There are many good options for calorie-dense freeze-dried meals, just head to your local outdoor store and pick your menu.
