Hi everyone, it’s been a while since I’ve last updated this site.. I had some plans about putting up pictures and trip report for my Sarek trip, but got distracted by a different project. I have been in the works now for a few months of building my own gear shop here in Sweden and europe and/or producing my own gear in Sweden. Well an oppurtunity presented itself and I bought out the well known danish shop Backpackinglight.dk in early August and have been working non-stop on getting everything together for an early september re-launch.

Backpackinglight.dk has been one of europes first and best webshops to offer ultralight gear and is Denmarks only online site for UL gear and now backpackinglight.se will be Swedens premier shop for lightweight equipment. There will be two domains:

backpackinglight.dk for danish and european customers and

Backpackinglight.se for swedish customers

So far many of the old suppliers such as Tarptent, Cumulus, HMG, Gossamer gear and ULA equipment are on board with a few new suppliers on the way such as As Tucas, My trail co, Evernew, Toaks, Six moon designs, Fizan and a few more surprises along the way 🙂

The site is currently being revamped and moved as well as all the inventory being cataloged and ready for shipment! I am also working on an affiliate program for bloggers and will be setting up a few “live” conventions to show off the gear.

I am really looking forward to this new venture and so far it’s been a blast putting it altogether!

Happy Hiking,

Kenneth Shaw

  1. Cool! Good luck with finalising the site. Looking forward to its official opening!


  2. Super!!!
    I wish you all the best!
    And hope I will do some shopping soon.


  3. Hi Kenneth

    Congrats for the purchase and I wish you the best of luck with this new entrepreneurial activity. Although, this is a very niche market for Europe, I strongly believe there is plenty of space for growth in the coming years.

    Although I have never purchased any products from the danish webshop, I have always been checking out for any new items I might need/want to buy.

    Again, best of luck and wish you a great business.


  4. Wishing you all the best Kenneth, can’t wait mate 😊
