So nice to see a giveaway like this open to international hikers! Personally, I’ll be hiking the PCT this year, northbound starting April 19th! Whilst it’s true that you can buy ultralight gear in the UK, I feel that the real quality equipment comes straight from the US. Retailers who stock UL equipment from the US in the UK do add quite a lot of margin so sometimes making it unaffordable. The UL cottage companies in the US all seem to be working together, humble and routing for each-other which is so good to see, as ultimately whilst they want to sell product… the just want people to get outside and smell the air! I’d love to win! To showcase the best products, on the best terrain and hopefully inspiring some UK entrepreneurs to start making much more UL gear here in England just like Atom Packs amongst others! :)
