What is slack-packing? It’s a question I get asked, and in this video I’ll explain it to you. In a nutshell, slack-packing is hiking without carrying all the gear. There are a few ways to do it, and a few advantages, and I’ll talk about them here.

Hi, I’m Cris Hazzard, aka Hiking Guy, a professional outdoors guide, hiking expert, and author based in Southern California. I created this website to share all the great hikes I do with everyone else out there. This site is different because it gives detailed directions that even the beginning hiker can follow. I also share what hiking gear works and doesn’t so you don’t waste money. I don’t do sponsored or promoted content; I share only the gear recommendations, hikes, and tips that I would with my family and friends. If you like the website and YouTube channel, please support these free guides (I couldn’t do it without folks like you!).
