meet our Editor in Chief

Hi there! I'm Alex Jardine, the peppy editor-in-chief at Hikinglite.com. When I'm not out on the trails with my trusty backpack, you can find me at my desk reviewing the latest and greatest in ultralight hiking and backpacking gear. As a bonafide outdoor junkie, I live for escapes into nature and love discovering new trails across the globe. I have experience hiking and backpacking all over the world - I've been to the Americas, Asia, Australia and Europe.

My passion is helping fellow hiking fanatics gear up and get out there as safely and comfortably as possible. I take the grunt work out of filtering through countless pairs of hiking socks and tent stakes so you can spend less time researching and more time on the magnificent mountain paths. Tackling tough terrain? No problem! I've got your back (and your backpacking pack) covered with my in-depth guides.

Let me know if you have any gear questions.

Alex Jardine
