No 355 - The future of Ultralight Gear - Pt 2

Episode Summary

The second part of my interview with Ron Moak from Six Moon Designs, where we continue our discussion regarding the current state and future of the lightweight and the ultra-light market. Is the future more about education, rather than gear for gears sake? Is it time to drop the definitions between ultralight and just being lighter generally? How have consumer shopping habits changed, does the internet make research easier, or does it give people too many choices? Is there too much politics in the whole lightweight movement, shouldn't we just be getting out there and doing? And finally, what does Ron have in his rucksack and what did he actually pay for?
