Valentine Breton. Hiking. April 24th , 2018.
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.
Shirts And Base Layers. When it comes to hiking the base layer is probably the most important garment that you will wear second to your boots. A good base layer will be wicking away the sweat from your skin while making sure that you stay at the right temperature. Most important of all you need to make sure that you‘re comfortable so try a few different materials and make sure you‘re happy with the one you choose and it‘ll look after you while you‘re hiking.
If you intend to go hiking this summer or enjoy hiking as a part of your year-round activities making sure you have all the right gear in place will help you to get the most out of your hiking while ensuring that you still look good when you‘re out on the trail. Of course depending on where you‘re going to be hiking you will often need different types of gear but we‘ll come to that shortly. By making sure you‘ve got good hiking shoes it will avoid typical walking problems from cropping up such as blisters and sores which can ruin an otherwise really great day.
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.
