Hiking Equipment

Good hiking equipment is the cornerstone of every mountain trekking expedition. In this post, we will discuss what appropriate hiking equipment you should have so that your next adventure does not fail due to inadequate equipment.

Hiking equipment varies depending on the path – you might not need ice pickaxes to walk the Dingle Way, but you could if you hike a trail in the Alps. For many hiking paths, the necessary hiking gear remains the same. It’s critical to have the following items with you on the path for your personal protection.

If you intend to climb a peak or must prepare for changing weather conditions, breathable, light functional garments will be an invaluable addition to your hiking gear. When trekking, there is one unbreakable rule: the less you have to carry, the better.

For a day journey, backpacks with sizes ranging from 20 to 30 liters are sufficient, and no more than seven pounds should be carried. Even smaller versions, such as our hiking packs with 14 (or 18) liters, are sometimes sufficient. Ideally, your hiking backpack will include an integrated rain cover as well as many pockets.

Aside from clothes, a hiking backpack, and shoes, there are a few other essentials that will enhance your trekking experience. We’ve put up a quick checklist to ensure you don’t forget anything crucial at home.
