Just want to make a quick post here with regards to my book Ultralight and comfortable – keep in mind this is a three season primer. Also, this is a work in constant updates. Think of it as an IOS app, as long as you buy the original you will even get access to the updates. Version 1.5 will soon be out with a new chapter and a few other updates.
Last but not least, don’t forget about my Giveaway for the Bushbuddy ultra! more can be read about that here. There is only two weeks left before I give this bad boy away.
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
