Now as people will know by now, I like my hiking but the difference between a walk and a hike is the effort you put into it. Making sure you have the right equipment can help you turn a good walk into an amazing hike. And these are my top items!
SOCKS, I can’t scream this one first loud enough. A good thick pair of socks will stop the blisters before they start… or at least attempt to.
Hiking Boots, as much as you might love your old well worn in trainers, nothing is a substitute for a sturdy set of boots, just break them in first.
Good Backpack, just make sure it has those clips in the front, you want to keep the weight high on your back.
A water bladder, it’s all good having a bag with all the bells and whistles if you have to take it all off in order to have a simple drink.
With these 4 simple items it’s going to be a lot more enjoyable.
