A Successful Hike Depends on Your Gear
One of the things I like to do here at All About Hiking is provide you with hiking gear reviews so you can make informed choices about which gear you will buy.When planning a hiking trip, your hiking gear list is essential because it will help you decide what to pack. Your comfort on the hike will depend on whether or not you are prepared with the right equipment.
The hiking equipment that you use may differ from hike to hike. It all depends on the terrain, weather, time of year, what your preferences are, etc. For example, some people may like using hiking poles and others may not.
Another example of when the right equipment can help with comfort is in bad weather. Hiking rain gear, such as hard shells and waterproof hiking boots, can really increase your level of comfort.
