            I enjoy how this magazine covers the breadth of the U.S. and not just any one section. You may find that there is a trail right outside your door step or you may find one close to or make, your next destination.

            Comments about Backpacker:

            Articles cover a wide range of hiking activities. Well put together. Focuses mostly on domestic hiking (which is good) but also includes international destinations, while entertaining is out of the reach of most of us. Love the equipment reviews but very much wish they could include mid priced equipment. I don't think most of us can afford $600 for sleeping bags and $900 for 1 man tents.

                    Backpacker is the only magazine I subscribe to. I find the articles and photos are great. I have bought equipment recommended by them and have never been disappointed. I save all my copies to reference in the future for my travels.

                      Bought gift subscription for my adventurous college daughter, loved it so much that I ordered another subscription for the Middle School Library. Terrific insights for every level of hiker and great introductions to many state and national parks you may not have visited yet! Love the gear reviews so I always feel more informed when purchasing equipment now!
