[Video] Erik Whewell X Backpacker with ProTrek PRW-3500

Eric Whewell is a guide, teacher, mentor and role model, all simultaneously. His expertise ranges from rock climbing and alpine climbing to ski touring. As an AMGA Instructor and Team Member, his job as a mountain guide is to deliver the most rewarding experience possible for his guests. Maximizing their rewards. Minimizing the risk.

Eric’s equipment choices are the foundation of his ability to keep his guests safe. He needs to be in tune with the weather, sun exposure and time of day to help him manage the safety of his guests. Being able to track air pressure with a barometer, calculate sun exposure and make sure he is meeting his daily time goals are absolutely imperative when traveling in the mountains. Eric depends on the Casio ProTrek PRW3500 to enhance his ability to do his job.
