A Backpacker's Guide to Making Every Ounce Count was written by an avid outdoorsman, for the beginner backpacker and hiker. Also, for those interested in knowing what a Gram Weenie is and how we think. If you are interested in lightening your pack a few ounces at a time, this book covers that very subject. Steven discusses how he used to pack for a trip and how he soon realized that there had to be a lighter way to backpack.

A Backpacker's Guide to Making Every Ounce Count offers tips that may allow you to approach your pack from a different point of view, like cutting the tags from your clothes and cutting your toothbrush in half--all in the name of shaving a few ounces of weight.

When planning a trip, you need to look at your gear and ask questions like, "How many ounces can I shave from this item?" This book offers some ideas on how to lighten a few ounces from any pack, reduce the weight on your Big Three, and help you define just what type of backpacker you are--a lightweight or an ultra-lightweight backpacker.

Remember this, there are sixteen ounces in a pound. If you can shave four ounces from four areas in your pack, you just shaved one pound from your pack. Every ounce truly does count.
