Alacoque Dupacrac. Hiking. April 24th , 2018.
When choosing my hiking trousers I usually go for the ones that have the lower legs which can be zipped off and be converted into shorts. It might just be a small thing but when the heat is baking then putting the bottom of the legs into the pack and getting on with the hiking does feel great.
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.
So you want to go hiking and therefore you need to understand what hiking gear you will need to take with you. The stores are full of lots of gear for hiking that they want to sell you. However here are the main things you need to consider when deciding what hiking gear you need.
We entered the Sierra Nevada on June 11 in a very heavy snow year so we spent about a month hiking through snow sometimes only getting down below snow level in the evening to camp. I had very little experience hiking in deep snow and no experience navigating when the trail was covered with snow most of the day. Mostly we did it with map and compass but we did use a GPS some to pinpoint the trail location and to confirm which was the right pass a few times. I had crampons at the beginning of the Sierras but soon lost them off the back of my pack before I ever used them. One thing we didn‘t have to worry about was water. We got spoiled by only having to carry a liter or two of water. We often drank directly from springs and the snow melt streams without bothering to treat the water.
