On the trail, you're on your own. Nothing can compare to the freedom and exhileration that a good hike brings. But there are no convenience stores in the forest or on the side of a mountain. So you gotta go prepared.
When hiking, you'll need the same amount of gear and hiking equipment (except food) for a three-day trip as you would for a ten-day trip. Pack light, hope for the best, but always be prepared for the worst, just in case.
The longer your hike, the more comfort you'll need, and the more you'll depend on quality to get you there and back safely. In this section we offer the finest selections of hiking gear to help you get the most out of your next adventure!
