5.0 étoiles sur 5 que de bons conseils 25 octobre 2013
Par leroyer
Format:Broché|Achat authentifié par Amazon
à lire en long en large et en travers. A conseiller même aux non randonneurs pour l'humour avec lequel l'auteur traite ce sujet ainsi que tous les dessins et caricatures qui jalonnent ce petit livre. Quand d'autres théorisent et coupent les cheveux en quatre l'auteur tourne cette quette du léger en dérision tout en donnant des bases solides sur ce qu'il est bon de faire emporter ou laisser chez soit avant de partir randonner. Car c'est avant tout pour s'évader que l'on randonne.. la légèreté vous aidera

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Bon livre sur l'allègement du randonneur 13 novembre 2011
Par frederic
J'ai trouvé que c'était un bon livre. Il reprend bien les différentes techniques pour s'alléger. Bien qu'il est assez difficile de trouver le matériel de randonnée indiqué dans le livre en France il donne les grandes lignes. A chacun ensuite de les tester. J'ai bien aimé aussi les conseils sur les bonnes pratiques du randonneur.
Les dessins sont superbes et humoristiques.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Good tips and an interesting read, even for seasoned backpackers 9 mai 2011
Par William Fink - Publié sur
Format:Broché|Achat authentifié par Amazon
I reformed and became a light packer ever since a grueling hike in West Virginia last year, and I'm always looking for ways to tweak my gear and shed more weight. This book has lots of info and gets you thinking about ways to trim the fat out of your kit. While most of the tips were things I've already done, I still gained quite a few ideas for making my gear more efficient. It's a quick read, and easy to refer back to. Like the other reviewers have stated, Clelland's writing style is light-hearted with silly humor throughout.

Pretty much my only point of disagreement is going into the wilderness without a knife. The author advises just carrying a single edged razor in your kit. Is this fine for most trips? Almost certainly. But if you are like me, and most of your travels take you deep in the wilderness far from any help, going without a good knife is irresponsible at best. Remember Murphy.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Sensible Advice for Going Ultralight 2 juin 2011
Par M. Martin - Publié sur
Format:Broché|Achat authentifié par Amazon
Another reviewer described the move to being an ultralight backpacker as a "leap of faith," and the religious metaphor is entirely apt. Ultralight devotees almost always talk about their baseweight and their featherlight gear in the language of zealots. At times, this can be rather annoying to the unconverted. The virtue of Clelland's writing is that almost never does he go too far into the preachy. I'm what he would call a lightweight backpacker (base weight of 12#) since I have yet to deprive myself of the luxurious pleasures of a tent, a sleeping bag, and a powerful stove. For me, his series of recommendations about how to drop weight was helpful and pleasurable to read. I learned a few things that I immediately put into practice and found good (and I'm even considering trying an alcohol stove). I think anyone who backpacks will feel similarly, and will find his book a source of innovative new approaches.

On the other hand, I have no intention of going without a knife and a roll of toilet paper. Call me unreformed.

Still this is a great little book, and fun to read. Give it a try.

An update on 3/2012: I still carry that roll of toilet paper, but I've since been converted and I'm now officially ultralight at 8#. I've also re-read Clelland's book and I've found it to be wonderful and helpful on a second pass. Highly recommended, as this is likely to be the best money you spend on a backpacking book.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Good UL framework but some major flaws. 17 octobre 2011
Par Coastal Reader - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle|Achat authentifié par Amazon
What I like about this book:
- Good mental framework for going UL: Question every piece of gear to see if you can find a suitable UL replacement or simply leave it at home. One of the biggest challenges of going UL is the shift in mindset required to do it successfully.
- Good understanding presented on "systems" versus "gear". It is helpful to approach UL from the perspective of systems: shelter system, food system, etc. The author leaves out one of the most important systems: the survival system (addressed below).
- Some good specific guidance on weight reduction gear piece-by-piece. Take what works for you and ignore the rest.

Even if UL is not for you, going lighter should be a constant quest for every long-distance trekker. I am not a UL trekker, but the base weight of my pack drops with every trip (currently at 25 pounds minus consumables).

One other option to going truly UL is to condition your body and mind to handle extra weight. I do many local day hikes with an overweight pack (up to 60 pounds) as training for true wilderness treks. Once you have humped around a 60 pound pack your 25-45 pound pack feels light as a feather. Being in shape for trekking is just as important as your gear.

What I do not like about this book:
- Going UL/minimalist should not mean sacrificing safety. The goal is to enjoy the wilderness and come home alive. The author ignores the absolute necessity of the survival components of your systems/gear. The advice to take a razor knife into the wilderness is irresponsible and dangerous in my opinion. I do take one - in my first aid kit. I also carry a full-tang, high quality knife. It is gear essential item #1. After all, with a knife I can more easily make shelter, fire, hunt, etc. You should always have the gear and mindset to deal with the unexpected on backcountry excursions. If you venture out into the wilderness often enough you will eventually find yourself in unpleasant, perhaps even life-threatening conditions. Good luck with your razor knife and your book of bar matches (another ridiculous suggestion). I carry 18 oz of gear in my survival kit (excluding my knife). When your life is on the line an extra 18 oz of gear does not seem like such a heavy burden to carry.

For what it's worth, I have trekked over 25K miles on foot both as a 12-year infantry officer in the Army and as an avid outdoor adventurer. I have been in true survival situations and I can tell you that a good knife and other minimal survival gear (550 paracord, firesteel, etc.) can and does save lives (even if it's not your own necessarily).

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Great read! but not many inexpensive tips 21 juillet 2011
Par samuel zuckerman - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle|Achat authentifié par Amazon
I am a NOLS graduate, where Mike Clelland does his instructing, and many things he teaches in this book will be taught on a NOLS course. From taking a dump, to hiking in bear country! So if you aren't ready to take a leap into the 30-day course, he gives you a lot (NOT ALL) of information for 500% less than a course would cost!!

I am a traditional backpacker wanting to lighten my load. I do not want to lighten my weight enough to cut my $160 pack into pieces in order to lose major weight. In other aspects, Mike speaks of tarps, bivy's or quilts and more stuff to buy instead of the traditional tent or sleeping bag. I was expecting some do it yourself projects for these major items, or some products recommendations that are at good price.

What stuff he did give you was common sense, such as a soda bottle instead of a standard backpacking bottle. I just hoped for a lot more information along these lines..

Also, he was quick to recommend other books he had co-written or drawn for! I mean he was so quick to recommend these, he did it in the first few pages!

Despite being disappointed, I had to give this book a 4.. It was really fun and interesting, I read the whole thing in a day I was so intrigued. I'd recommend this to car campers who are about to camp away from their vehicle for the first time(cause I used to be a car camper, and I know nothing is left behind, no matter what the weight!), if you're just beginning you'll learn loads, and to the veteran camper who may want to shed a few pounds, or a reminder of techniques and tricks - you'll be entertained the whole time!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The prescription for happiness 21 avril 2011

This book rocks. You can futz around with everything and listen to conventional wisdom or take the leap of faith and go to the ultralight world. It is so simply put forward, and so well illustrated that you get the experience and the information in such an entertaining way that it's a fun read, start to finish. Nice how someone posesses the talent to put all that experience into writing. You can surf forums all day, but the tips in this book go further than those discussions and give you the ticket to a great wilderness experience. Best backpacking book I've read.
