Here are just a few things to consider and think about. o Consider where you`re going what your activities will consist of and how long you plan to stay in order to determine what gear you might need. o Will you be Camping Fishing Hiking Backpacking or maybe you just want to set up camp and chill for the weekend. You can even plan a combination.
Choosing good clothing is a must too. Shirts made from synthetic or synthetic-blend fabrics work best for hikers and campers. It allows the perspiration to evaporate and leaves the shirt dry for the comfort of the hikers. Brands like PowerDry Coolmax Apparel and Airtek make good-quality shirts.
Let`s dive into some of the specifics on what we covered above: If you plan on camping through your hike- Get a good quality tent. Be sure to consider the size and quality. You will want a good rainfly. Don`t make the mistake I made once and get a tent based on how it looked cool. You want function over fashion any day. You also will want a small tarp to place under the tent to help keep the tent floor dry. You can also use this as a rain cover should you get caught in a storm during your hike. A roll of duct tape and some seam sealer are always good to have should your tent form some leaks or a seam split. I learned that the hard way. For sleeping at night a good sleeping bag and a roll to lay it on is great idea. Be sure to decide on what best fits your needs. Each bag is rated for various temperature conditions. The pad is to roll out under the under the sleeping bag to not only provide some comfort but to create another moisture barrier. If you bag gets wet it almost impossible to dry it out during your hike.
Rucksacks The principle feature of this type of pack is that it closes with a drawstring at the top. Otherwise it is just like any other small backpack. There are many fashionable rucksacks for everyday use but not so many these days designed for hiking and backpacking. So let us move on. Day Packs This refers to just about any backpack that is too small to use for over-night backpacking. Kids these days often use them to carry their school books in moms use them as diaper bags and I know quite a few software engineers who use them instead of briefcase. They are really quite versatile.
