Valentine Breton. Hiking. April 24th , 2018.
Dress in layers in order to ensure you maintain the proper body temperature with changes in weather. The weather can change drastically when you are out on a long hike and you need to be prepared for all type of weather conditions. Avoid cotton clothing because it holds moisture for long periods. Use polypropylene and other synthetic materials. Make sure you wear dark clothing because they dry faster. Wear light colored clothing if you‘re hiking in areas known for their tick infestation.
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.
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.
Other Gear. While this was the most essential mountain hiking gear that you might possibly need depending on your preference and style there are several other hiking gear you can use too. Some of this gear includes cams chalk bags for the winter and webbing. If you ever decide to go for mountain hiking whether you plan to by yourself or with a hiking partner never leave without the mentioned essential mountain hiking gear.
