Let’s get into it!

Hiking clothing and accessories

Each hobby has a certain “equipment” that is worn. Basketball, soccer, golf, swimming, you name it. Certain items are either necessary for flexibility, ventilation or protection. Hiking has its own clothing, too, with some sticking to the best hiking gear, while others mix it up with exercise gear. No matter what you choose, understand that there are potential risks, just as with every hobby or sport.

Here is a checklist of the essential items you’ll want to consider when going out in the great outdoors for your hiking hobby.

The right shoes

No matter if you’re walking fast on a flat surface or want to be adventurous and conquer miles and heights, if your shoes don’t fit, your body won’t do well either. You should always think about your feet, ankles, knees and hips while walking. Hiking shoes, sneakers, and sandals expressly made for your “trip” are perfect and the best way to go! For the “versatile hiker” who might want to use their shoes for other hobbies, check out these beauties from Merrell! Altalite hiking shoes! And don’t forget the wool socks for hiking! Try our Smartwool Performance Low Ankle Socks.

If you’re like me, while taking a trek, I might get a little curious and do some climbing or even find a great rock to sit on at a height! It is always a good idea to wear hiking gloves on the deck. Some even wear them as protection just in case they slip and fall. Try Hestra’s Touch Point Fleece Liner Five Finger Gloves. And last but not least, a hiking backpack!
