Backpacking is all about reducing weight and using space efficiently. You can learn a lot about other peoples research and trials. Take a look at this video on what to take on an overnight backpacking trip in the backcountry.

The beauty of Outdoors Geek is that you can rent our gear which is new in most cases, try it out see if you would keep using it in the future. And if it in fact did work for you, then you can purchase the item. Some things are worth buying, others are way better to rent depending on geography and type of travel.
