"At long last, a detailed and good-humored backpacking guide by and for women! If you've been relying on standard hiking guides that assume a man's physique, the lack of a monthly cycle, and a bare-bones approach to packing and cooking, you're in for a treat!"

Hiking/outdoors/skiing for women-Whew! This category is so broad that WSI will just assume you know what you want.

Outdoor gear has changed so much over the years. Unfortunately, the price has skyrocketed for specialty items. If you are not careful, you can spend a bundle before you know it. Two good names for gear for beginners that we have found to be is functional yet inexpensive are North Face and Columbia. Snowboarding is all the rage. Check out the articles below on how to pick out a snowboard. If you are looking for company or expert instruction, explore the travel opportunities section in our Women's Travel page. For further information, read up on articles about how to pick out hiking boots and how to buy a tent by Women's Sports Information's very own editors. Now get out there!

Look for backpacks designed for the shorter female torso. Search for camelback and other packs that are “female-specific (I think they mean the straps across your chest don’t pull or compress your breasts.)
