Practical Hiker is a place to quickly and easily learn about hiking and backpacking.

My goal is to reach as many people as possible and teach them about the benefits of hiking. Get them to frequently walk in nature and enjoy life.  In order to do that you have to have the right gear. That gear has to be affordable and reliable.

Here you will find guides,reviews and comparrisons from budget to high end hiking gear and finding the sweet spot between price to performance. I will not review bad gear choices, only gear that actually does its job.

Join me in my quest to inspire new hikers and find the best hiking gear for every budget!
