While I was researching packs for a 100km endurance hiking challenge, my interest in how we organise our gear gave birth to Pack Config, a place that inspires its readers to improve their own packs. What I carry, either daily or out on a hike, is constantly being refined as I discover new methods and products.

The unpredictable UK weather provides a constant challenge for my packing decisions. I enjoy every form of walking from woodland discovering with my wife and son, to long distance hiking across the local Downs. I had the privilege of deploying with Team Rubicon UK at the end of 2015 as a photographer/mud-shoveller and was humbled and impacted by the calibre and attitude of the whole team. I also take every opportunity I get to pursue my bushcraft techniques.

The Trail Blazer patch is about carving out a new path where there isn’t one. Oh and orange is slowly taking over my kit.
