Hendrik Morkel's Ultralight A-Z Video on Kickstarter

Kickstarter is an interesting concept whereby someone can raise funds for a project by pitching it to supporters for finance. Devin Montgomery did this for his innovative and original Boilerwerks chimney kettle. Now Devin is helping Hendrik Morkel of the excellent Hiking in Finland blog who is http://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gifasking for support for his project for the Ultralight A-Z - A Video Guide To Lightweight Backpacking. He's already met his target of $6000 but more funds would mean a better product. Hendrik's contribution to the backpacking community is already great (check out his blog for some interesting interviews with gear designers)and this project deserves support. The video will appear online for free but there will be various items including HD downloads, DVDs and T-shirts for supporters depending on how much money they pledge.


  1. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0TzZw6Ub-uk&feature=youtube_gdata_player that should be a link to his You Tube. I have been following for a few days, I think he has a review of a Scarp 1. He is very good, excellent English.

  2. Thanks Chris!

    And thanks Tony for saying my English is excellent - my teacher would be proud =)

  3. Had to back it. Need something to go with my Backcountry Boiler.
