Contributor & Edge Specialist
Adventurer, outdoorsman, mountaineer, sailor and gear enthusiast from Poland. It all started for Piotr when he was 10 and went to the high mountains with his father. Now he’s transferring his experiences and knowledge to the younger generation, together with his wife. His perfect vacation is not an all-inclusive hotel but a nothing-inclusive mountain shelter.
Piotr shares it all on Pack Config and also outdoor and gear related forums (as PiterM). He’s a dedicated hiker, who constantly looks for his Holy Grail Pack, so he tests new stuff each season. His favorite pack & gear brands are Prometheus Design Werx, Mystery Ranch, Hill People Gear, Kifaru, Arcteryx, Vargo and more. He also has a considerable knowledge about edged tools (knives and axes), including cutting tools from Chris Reeve, Strider, Spyderco, Helle, Gransfors Bruks, Roselli and other brands.

Piotr: I try to keep my gear as universal and multi-mission as possible. But sometimes you just can’t beat the performance of a specialised solution.
Piotr: This is my typical D-Route loadout for a winter day-hike in easy terrain – so just snowshoeing, no climbing.
