Your hiking outfit depends pretty much on how experimented you are, what kind of weather is outside and how long are you planning to stay.
For beginners and passionate people the hiking gear is really simple and lightweight if you’re aiming for easier tracks and paths. One of the most important things you must take with you is a hiking backpack for beginners, not too big and most important, very comfortable.
It is absolutely forbidden to consider taking a shoulder bag or any other kind of bag which might keep your hands busy. You need all the mobility and flexibility when hiking, especially on a dangerous track full of rocks and wet grass.
With a backpack you’ll have no worries: you’ll put it on your back and after that you’ll be able to focus on the hike and enjoy the views.
In contrast to an experimented hiker, for a beginner we would recommend a lighter backpack, medium size, with the minimum of features.
A compartment for a water bottle, some side pockets for a snack and other small things and a main compartment for the heavy stuff are more than enough to have a successful hike.
Depending on how long you are planning to stay, you might need a tent and some sleeping supplies but if you are going with more experimented hikers it would be recommended to leave them carry those. In this way you’ll be able to focus more on the track and avoid any accidents like a sprained ankle or even worse.
The weather in the mountains can be really unstable, especially if you’re hiking in the rainy season. For this reason, it would be good to consider getting a waterproof hiking backpack for beginners.
In this way you’ll protect the things inside from getting wet and speaking of, you can also throw in a raincoat as well because it takes very small space and they are really lightweight.
If you’re planning a hike any time soon, it would be great if you’ll consider our advice and we guarantee you that you’re adventure will be a successful one and you’ll make great memories.
