Troutdale, OR (PRWEB) December 4, 2008
Steve Green, owner of Only The Lightest Camping Equipment, announced today that his company has launched a newly redesigned website http://www.hikelight.com. The company, located at 990 SE Harlow Court in Troutdale, OR is a web-based supplier of ultralight hiking gear.
"We are happy to give our customers over 20 articles on ultralight backpacking with this new website. This helps them enjoy their adventures by hiking with less weight, and they can make more informed buying decisions," Green said. "The articles give backpackers a complete, free book on how they can reduce the weight of their pack and have more fun, the very essence of hiking."
The articles include information on how to lighten every piece of gear in your pack item-by-item. You can make the greatest weight savings on your pack, tent, and sleeping bag, but the website includes information on all your gear. The articles include information on lightweight food, clothing, first aid, insect protection, and water treatment.
The emphasis has been to help customers enjoy their time on the website and make it informative and easy to use. Backpackers can choose from an assortment of lightweight packs, tents, sleeping bags, clothing, cooking equipment, and a full line of accessories.
Mr. Green started Only The Lightest in 1993 using small, national advertisements and a catalog of lightweight gear. His personal enthusiasm for ultralight hiking has guided his product choices. It is easy to shop at mainstream backpacking outfitters and end up carrying loads over 40 pounds. The goal at Only The Lightest is to have customers comfortably and safely carrying less than 20 pounds.
Steve enjoys talking to customers and sharing personal expertise that cannot be found when shopping at big box retailers. This personal service has produced some extremely loyal customers who enthusiastically talk about how much more fun they have when backpacking with less weight.
A photo gallery personalizes the website. A strong set of links shows hikers other helpful ultralight hiking sites and organizations.
For additional information on the launching of this new website, contact Steve Green or visit http://www.hikelight.com. Most of the ultralight backpacking products offered are available for same-day shipping by priority mail.
