Ultralight and comfortable: The politically incorrect guide to becoming an ultralight bad-ass, is now available at the Amazon store for distribution worldwide.

With regards to those of you who have pre-ordered the book: I had to cancel the pre-order process as Amazon would not update the book in time for you to get the finsihed copy. They still had a draft that needed a lot of extra work. (in my opinion) So I cancelled all pre-orders and refunded the money so that I could be sure that you guys would get the best version at the start of the release.

Praise and/or condemnation:

Learn from a Pro who has hiked the last quadrillon years facing the final frontier and lived off the land? Or learn from a guy just like you who manages to go light, kick ass and ultimately enjoys his time outdoors? Your choice, but Ken Shaw offers insight into the lightweight world that leaves you with the feeling of ” I can do that too!”

” I like it (this book), the disrespectful tone, the no-holds-barred non-balanced way of describing your experiences. Probably because it is just the opposite of my own writing. And a good complement. This book is intended to irritate the hell out of the reader.” Jörgen Johansson – http://www.fjaderlatt.se author Smarter backpacking

    Hej! Finns boken bara som e-book med Kindle? Jag har ingen Kindle, och är inte särskilt intresserad av att skaffa en. Men jag är väldigt intresserad av att läsa boken. Jag bor i Sverige, kunde gärna betala dig extra kostnad av att skriva ut en kopia om det går för dig.


    1. Hej Warren, den är bara på kindle men man behöver inte köpa själva kindle.. går även att ha som app på sin iphone eller ipad mm. Men du behöver inte köpa boka, skicka mig din email och jag skickar PDF länk till dig
