About the Author
More important, Jordan walks the talk. He's not just a casual enthusiast interested in "writing a neat book". His idea of a good time: trekking several hundred miles through vast sections of remote wilderness with an ultralight pack eliminating the need for resupply.
Jordan's approach to gear testing is unrivaled in the industry, blending hardcore field testing in the deep snows of Montana's wintertime wilderness with objective laboratory science and engineering evaluations that expose the most subtle flaws in poor product design.
