Gram Weenie

Gram weenies are ultralight backpackers that are excessively concerned about the weight they carry when backpacking or hiking. They take steps to lighten their load that may draw scorn or applause from others such as cutting of labels off their equipment and clothing, cutting off excess straps off their backpacks, trimming their toothbrush handles and taking other steps to literally save grams.
