Comments about Backpacker:

Long in the tooth but still the best magazine of its kind. Quality gear reviews from editors that actually use the equipment. Beautiful photography makes you want to get off your butt and go hiking. Articles from folks who have hiked the trails they describe. Only fault is too many adds (which pay for the magazine, keeps the subscriber's rates down).

                  Comments about Backpacker:

                  I picked up a "Backpacker" magazine in my dentist's office several years ago that provided details on the highest point in each of the 50 states. I added this to my "bucket" list. I began my subscription the next month and have been a continuous subscriber since. I have added gift subscriptions for my son and two of my daughters and that has led to family hikes--Grand Canyon Rim-To-Rim, AT, Rocky Mountain NP, and numerous local hikes.
