What equipment should I choose for hiking?
How to fit the right shoes for such an activity?
Because hiking is synonymous with walking, you need shoes that are adapted to that purpose! Are you new to hiking and don't know much about it? Your choice should be made according to your itinerary and especially the type of terrain you will be walking on! If it's easy trails, choose shoes that are both soft and light. For more technical terrain, you should consider the following criteria: stability, cushioning and durability. And for rough terrain, choose shoes that can give you maximum traction and foot support. You can choose between several models such as the Premium waterproof-leather from The North Face or the Trailmaker from adidas Terrex. Equipped with an ultra-grippy outsole, they give you maximum safety! Treat yourself to these sneakers at an unbeatable price!
What to wear downstairs?
Since walking for hours in the wilderness requires a lot of freedom of movement, you'll need light clothing! If it's really hot, then opt for shorts! Made of durable material and breathable fabric, they allow you to move comfortably on any terrain! The R5 from Gore or the Standard from The North Face will do the trick! If it's colder, opt for pants instead! Choose models that are made from nylon fabric, as they have the advantage of being water resistant and quick drying. You'll also be well protected when you're on hard surfaces or encountering sharp edges. You can choose between the Terrex Hike from Adidas or the R3 Zip-off Windstopper from Gore. These are available at unbeatable prices!
What about the top?
Are you planning to go hiking or trekking in the middle of summer? Short-sleeved shirts are a good idea for your top! Not only are they lightweight, but they also have breathable technology to keep you dry. But as you know, since hiking is an outdoor activity, weather conditions can change suddenly! For this reason, it's best to always carry a jacket. This will prevent you from catching cold when it's windy and rainy! Our hiking jackets are made of polyester and are padded for maximum comfort. If you're short on ideas, consider the Rainforest Pocket Print from Napapijri, the R3 Active from Gore or the Gosei Puffer Jacket from The North Face. Get these jackets for less!
