Overview

Customer interest has led to a wide array of low impact, lightweight, durable outdoor equipment. Manufacturers of camp and stock equipment provide outdoor enthusiasts with a large selection of products. Choosing the best equipment may be a confusing task because of the numerous styles, materials, manufacturers, and prices. Equipment must be adequate for the intended purpose, be environmentally appropriate, and be affordable. This guide highlights some of the products available for well-run wilderness camps and stock operations.

A basic premise of low-impact recreation is the need to reduce the number of stock required to support an activity. The ability of humans and pack animals to carry equipment or supplies is generally limited by bulk and weight. Comparatively light equipment that disassembles or collapses can significantly reduce the impact associated with transportation.

This guide is organized into two sections - camping equipment and stock equipment. Each chapter has general product information, safety and use tips, and advantages or disadvantages of the various materials and technology available.
