Some optional but still useful items to bring along on your hiking adventure include a map of the hiking trail a cell phone a first aid supply and a small compass. These things would be helpful if it will be your first time on a hiking adventure. Not only will they help you have a more pleasant adventure they can also keep you safe.
Apart from your hiking boots there are other forms of equipment needed for you hike. If you plan on embarking on a day hike you will need hiking socks water purifying tablets (if you are not carrying your own water) a back pack walking stick traction devices rescue beacons signaling gear Avalanche probes (if you will be on snow covered hilly terrain) jackets binoculars first aid kit a compass sunscreen and food. For an overnight hike you will require a tent sleeping bag camp stoves rain gear matches a Swiss army knife and a flashlight. Get a map of the route you plan on taking. If you plan to hike alone or with one another person notify your family (or a ranger if you are hiking through a park) on the place where you will be and the time you expect to return. That way someone can come looking for you if you are in trouble or just simply lost.
Belay Device. If you are worried about falling while mountain hiking then you should essentially carry a belay device with you. A belay device is a small unit with two slots through which the rope is fed. If you are not hiking alone then using a belay device will allow you to hike above or below your hiking partner. If you are hiking above your hiking partner then you can pull back on the rope if hiking partner begins falling or vice versa.
Once you start moving on to shirts and fleeces the old adage about thinner layers and lots of them being better than a small number of thicker layers is completely accurate. If you‘re hiking to the really cold areas a thicker coat can be a good addition but most hiking trips will suffice with a few layers and a set of waterproofs. Conclusion. Hiking gear is certainly an area where you will have plenty of choice. Just make sure that you take your time in picking out the right hiking gear and if you look after it it will look after you while you‘re hiking.
