The Home Of Cheap Ultralight Backpacking Gear Reviews

Welcome to Thrifty Hiker, a blog focusing on ultralight backpacking gear reviews. We review the best ultralight camping, backpacking, and hiking gear – for those of you backpacking on a budget. Our aim is to save aspiring ultralight campers money on decent gear. After all, when you spend less time worrying about your bank balance, you can spend more time hitting the trail!

A lot (but not all) of our reviews focus on gear that can be found on Ali Express. If you’ve never heard of Ali Express before, check out our handy guide in order to know what to expect. But if you’re ready to dive in, then check out our ultralight backpacking gear reviews, or head to our blog to see what else we’ve been up to.
