Returning home is the most difficult part of long-distance hiking. You have grown outside the puzzle and your piece no longer fits.

About Me

Hi, I’m Evan. An army active duty combat-medic veteran and founder of Hyklyt. I became an ultralight thru-hiking and mountain biking enthusiast in 2020. It wasn’t too much longer before I decided I wanted to put my skills in emergency medicine and survivalist exploration to good use.

My family and I are adventure-bound and love the outdoors. When I’m not spending time with my wonderful kids and wife, I love to write about my fascination with adventure, and living a healthy and productive lifestyle by hiking, mountain biking, and backpacking.

I keep my mind busy designing innovative ultralight and thru-hiking gear and plan to soft-launch our very own products here, on HykLyt.com!
