    • The first print issue should arrive in 6-10 weeks. Details

      International Addresses: Magazine subscriptions offered at Amazon.com can only be shipped within the 50 United States, APO/FPO address and U.S. Protectorates. We are unable to process magazines to other destinations at this time. Please contact the magazine's publisher for further assistance.

      When to Expect Your First Issue: Magazine subscriptions ordered at Amazon.com are shipped to you by the magazine's publisher. The first issue of a weekly magazine should arrive within 4-6 weeks of your order. The first issue of a monthly magazine should arrive within 6-10 weeks, unless otherwise noted.

      Once you've placed an order at Amazon.com, it can take one to two weeks for your subscription to be received and scheduled by the publisher. Your subscription is then added to the publisher's next production cycle and shipped via standard mail. For example, if your monthly subscription was ordered and received by the publisher in November, and the December issue has already shipped, your order may be added to the January mailing. You can find out more information, including how to contact the publisher about your subscription, in Amazon's Magazine Subscription Manager.

      Renewing Your Subscription: If you are ordering as a renewal to the same name and address as the current subscription, the publisher will add the Amazon order to your current subscription. For example, if you have 5 issues left and you add 12 through Amazon, you will now have 17 issues left on your subscription. Please note that the expiration date in the Magazine Subscription Manager will not reflect if you were already on file with the publisher. We will work with the publisher to ensure that you still receive all of the issues left on your subscription.

      Publication Frequency: Magazines which show "irregular" availability are those which are not published according to a regular schedule. If you place an order for such a magazine, you will receive new issues as soon as they are available.

    • Control your subscription settings anytime using Amazon's Magazine Subscription Manager.
    • If you purchase the auto-renewing offer, your subscription will renew at the end of the current term. Before it renews, we will send you a reminder notice stating the term and rate then in effect. Cancel anytime.

    Amazon.com Review

    Backpacker magazine helps you get ready for your next outdoor adventure, while also inspiring you to start planning those once-in-a-lifetime camping and hiking trips you've dreamed about for years. From practical tips to motivating stories about major excursions, this magazine has everything the serious outdoor enthusiast needs and wants to know about hiking and backpacking. The primary focus is on out-of-the-way or unusual North American locations for backpacking and camping, but the magazine occasionally covers international trips and other human-powered outdoor activities, such as canoeing or cross-country skiing.

    Whether you are a new camper or a backpacker with plenty of miles already behind you, you'll find plenty of interesting articles and columns in Backpacker magazine. Articles covering essential hiking and camping skills get you started quickly, while gear reviews help you keep up to date on the latest outdoor adventure technology. Taste-tested recipes make life on the trail more enjoyable, and advanced skill tips let you take your adventures to the next level.

    The writing in Backpacker magazine is easy to understand and doesn't talk down to readers who are familiar with life in the backcountry. Articles are well researched, so you can rely on the information. Full-color photographs motivate and inspire you during the trip-planning phase, while detailed maps help you get an idea of the lay of the land before you go.

    Whether you're interested in multi-day backcountry adventures or day hiking trips with a few friends, Backpacker magazine gives you the information you need to know to get on the trail and enjoy the wilderness.
