In the meantime, if you're either packing too little or bringing too much water...

...Or your pack is too heavy, and you're struggling to keep it light... Or you're worried your pack is missing the bare essentials... Or you don't know what to pack for possible injuries...

Then this could be the #1 most encouraging thing you ever read...

Why It's Easy To Overpack
(and Forget The Essentials)

Imagine this.

It's a sunny day without a cloud in the sky. The trail you decide on is 5 hours long. You haven't hiked it before but you're ready for a challenge. 

Before you hit the trail, you aren't really sure what to pack. So you randomly grab things and place them in your pack. You grab a light jacket, 2 liters of water, a granola bar, and put on your hiking boots. And you’re off to the trails.

You arrive at the base of the trail and park your car. You feel energized already, as you open the car door and take deep breath in the crisp mountain air. Eager to start, you arrive at the foot of the trail and start to hike.

A few miles in, the sun is scorching hot and you can feel the heat on your neck, shoulders and back. It's time for a break. You stop and reach for your water bottle, and start sipping the water. The view is spectacular but you must carry on.

You keep hiking onward. Taking sips of water here and there. Before gearing up for the summit trek, you get into the hiking zone. This is the moment you've waited for. In it you feel hiking is effortless and easy. 

As you hike closer and closer to the mountain summit, you're sweating and panting. The uphill climb has your heart beating faster and faster. Right foot after left foot. Right foot after left foot. Your feet and body are tired but look up and see that the summit is in sight. You push and push and get to the top.

You stop and take a look at the breathtaking view. Below, the trees in the distance line up perfectly with the beach shoreline. The sun is setting and the sun rays reflects off the ocean horizon in the distance. Magnificent!

At this time, you're thirsty. You reach for your sip of water.

And then you realize, the bottle is empty.

You didn’t bring enough water. So you decide to quickly complete the hike. 

As you ascend the mountain, you start to notice the air has become nippy and the sun is longer out. You start to feel a little chilly but don’t have any extra clothing to wear. The sun sets faster and faster. And the day gets darker and darker. 

Unable to you clearly, you slip on a large rock and begin to slide down the trail. A small tree branch cuts your right leg and you begin to bleed. Without bringing first-aid you have nothing to treat it with. Your leg bleeds more and more.

You look through your pack and surprisingly find some tissue paper. You gently take it out and wave it in the air. Onto the wound, you place it and apply some pressure. 

This could sound like an over exaggeration to most, but I’ve seen this happen on the trails over and over again.

Hikers are unprepared when it comes to their pack. But it doesn’t have to be so...

Based On Where You Are Right Now

When it comes to packing for your hike, what you want to do is find a solution that specifically addresses your unique hiking situation…

Ideally a guide or resource that walks you through all the steps you need to:

  • Keeping your pack light but ensuring you have the essential supplies

  • Know how much water and snacks to bring to your hikes

  • What to pack for possible injuries and how to deal with accidents and injuries on the trail.

  • Finding the right hiking shoes, poles, shirts, jackets and pants suited for your hiking ability.

  • Packing the right clothes for different weather conditions

Which is why I put together a book covering everything you need to find your the right trails for your hiking ability and navigate through them.

Discover EVERYTHING You Need To Know About Packing For Your Hike

Hi, my name is Nate Lau.

And I’ve been hiking for as long as I can remember…

In a moment, I’m about to share with you information that took me a lifetime to discover... and show you how to ​discover EVERYTHING you need to know about packing for your hike all in one place!

... And the best part?

You Can Check Everything Out For FREE If You Choose!

But before I go on, I should probably start by telling you my story.

If you can’t tell by now, hiking is a bit of an “obsession” for me and my wife. Together we hike 3 times a month finding trails to hike from all over the world.

We always find tips and tricks from talking to hikers we meet on the trail…

We even started a Facebook group with over 77,854 followers to date to share these tips and learn from other hikers around the world.

Hikingfeed facebook followers

So naturally, my wife and I decided to compile a hiking book — which I’ve titled Hikerprep: The Complete Simple Guide To Easy Hiking Preparation — to help hikers experience dramatic improvements in hiking in a matter of a few weeks.

Before writing this book, we initiated a research project to interview hikers from around the world. They ranged from ‘newbies’ who hiked once a year to seasoned experts who hike over 5 times a month.

We set out to find out exactly what information would be the most valuable in a comprehensive “how-to” book about hiking.

This Book Consumed 10 Months Of Our Lives...
And We Loved Every Minute Of It

Fast forward today, the final book “Hikerprep: The Complete Simple Guide To Easy Hiking Preparation” is everything you need to know about preparing for your day hiking… explained step-by-step, and complete with dozens of diagrams, tables and photographs.

Hikerprep the complete simple guide to easy hiking preparation

This book also contains word-of-mouth tips and tricks. This is the true gold that you won't find anywhere else. Info you’d otherwise discover only after decades of REAL “feet on the trail” experience - including all those tough questions that you can’t just get by by doing an internet search or by reading any other book.

And unlike most backpacking books, everything is explained in plain English, without any boring jargon.

We wrote everything and made it as entertaining and easily understandable as possible.

AND we made the book available to almost everyone because we offer a complete, no-risk opportunity to check out the book FREE, if you choose…

Writing a book takes a lot of time and effort and I don't take it lightly.

My latest book (which I wrote about Hiking as well) was recently named an Amazon Bestseller. It took a lot out of me and that's why I want you to know that Hikerprep was written with quality in mind.

It was written so that you can get the most of your next hike because your time is precious.

"The biggest benefit was discovering what I needed to do quickly prepare for any hike and spend more time on the trails.

I tried it and it worked. Without your help it would have taken me a long time to realize both the importance of hiking preparation, fitness and mindset. The biggest benefit was learning what I needed to do to quickly prepare for any hike and spend more time on the trails. I tried it and it worked. Without your help it would have taken me a long time to realize both the importance of hiking preparation, fitness and mindset. 

"I was stopped in my tracks with the fitness part because that's what I was interested in the most.

I just started hiking again this year and frankly was struggling with the whole hiking preparation part. The information was very insightful and in fact helped me see that my fitness can be improved in three ways not one (among others)!

My fitness level was not what was it was and the information helped me to see how to improve my fitness before my hike. The exercises I came up with are now being used on all my hikes, all because of your book Hikerprep!

While reading and figuring out my exercises, my enthusiasm just blossomed. It also taught me how to set expectations and have the right mindset before hiking. I knew it on a gut level but when I compare to other hikers, I could very clearly see how my mindset just really stands out.

I would highly recommend this e-book because it makes you hike in a totally new and helpful way.

"The feature I enjoyed most was how to calculate trail difficulty

I have a very high trail completion rate when it comes to hiking, but I'm interested in tackling harder trails over the next year, rather substantially.

I purchased HikingPrep as I was certain that it would provide useful info about how to actually go about doing that without experiencing excessive body aches, stamina, and mindset frustrations.

HikingPrep confirmed some practices I was already using — showing me why it was working and how to make it work even better. It also gave me an easy to use checklist for preparing for any hike that I choose to do at any time of the day. I feel confident now when I go for my hikes.

Many hikers I know have all sorts of issues on the trails — this should take away some of those issues if not all of them.

There's basically no good reason not to buy HikingPrep. It's hands down the best $30 I've spent this year.

Two Fabulous Bonuses
(Available With The Premium Package)

BONUS #1 - 30-60-120 Fitness Calendar and Planner

A few years ago, my body was aching during and after my day hikes. This aching period only got longer as I continued to age. Then, I discovered a few exercises that helped me recover faster.

I took note of this and created the 30-60-120 fitness calendar for maintaining my body when I'm not on the trails. It helped me minimize the aches and sores after hiking. And now I can go on multi-day hikes.

We recently had this professionally designed and laid out. And when you order the premium package, you'll receive the 30-60-120 calendar and planner with your order.

By the way, I've had numerous people tell me this calendar and planner alone was worth the cost of their book (once it was set in motion).

($27.00 Value)

BONUS #2 - Day Hiking Preparation Checklist

When I was first getting started with hiking, I created a simple quick-reference checklist to help me remember what to pack for each and every hike. And not too long ago, people started asking me for a similar checklist for their hikes.

So I went through my old notes, dug up that original worn-out, hand-written checklist, added a few more critical points and had it done up professionally.

Now it's one of my most sought-after resources - and because it's so near and dear to my heart, I only make it available from time to time.

So until i decide to take it down again (which could be tomorrow or next month, I haven't decided yet), you'll receive a copy of it included when you order the book today with the premium pacakge! ​

($15.00 Value)

You'll get a ton of good stuff included with your order... at an embarrassingly reasonable price... AND if for some reason you’re not 100% satisfied, you’ve got nothing to worry about, because you don’t risk a penny! :)
