Hiking For Beginners

by Hiking Gear Lab Travel Blogger, Hiking Enthusiast,

What you need for a comfortable hike


If you're preparing for a hike, you have probably looked at a few trails and started breaking in your hiking shoes. Before you take off on your outdoor adventure, remember a few fundamentals you will need with you to make sure your hike goes smoothly. Hiking Gear Lab can be overwhelming for the newbie hiker, but below are a few things you'll need. 

Hiking Socks


Proper hiking socks are more important than you think. It's not just the shoes that matter, but the socks you wear are just as important. Look for heavy wool socks that cover your ankles, and consider getting a thinner inner sock to wear inside your wool socks if you find wool uncomfortable. 


Hiking Sticks

 

This underrated equipment is important for those who have knee problems. Hiking sticks can help compensate for any injury you may already have, or any injury you might get on the trail. 

Hydration Packs

 

You will need lots of water for your hike. Instead of carrying a backpack with bottles of water, consider a Camelback, which is a bag that stores up to three gallons of water for you. Or, take a look at water jugs that clip onto your belt loop. 

When you shop hiking gear, remember that price isn't always the best indication of quality. Many hiking gear stores have attentive staff that are experts in hiking products. If you are unsure about brands or the best product, try to refer our buying guide and hiking tips. No matter, they will gladly direct you to the required area for the answer.

Although there are many more hiking supplies that you should get, these are the basics that are absolutely necessary. Whatever adventure you plan to take off on, remember to shop hiking gear, where you can make sure you are prepared and ready for your big encounter with nature.
