Top Gear for hiking
When you’re out hiking in nature, you’re going to come across plenty of interesting places that you want to capture on your camera. Get the best images of your hike by using a flexible tripod that can be perched on rocks and attached to vertical surfaces.
Trekking poles are a must for serious hikers, but they can also make more casual treks much easier too. The LT4S carbon fiber poles are comfortable and durable. They also have an optional camera mount.
After a few hours on your feet it can be nice to rest your legs before hitting the next path. The camp chair from Helinox is the ideal accessory for those who want to take a break. It comes with rubberized coating on the feet that prevents the chair from sliding on rock or slick surfaces.
Jetboil Flash Stove
You don’t have to just eat sandwiches or drink cold water when you’re out hiking. With the Jetboil Flash Stove you can heat up pretty much any food or drink you like. The Adjustable burner is surrounded by a windscreen to reduce heat loss and improve fuel efficiency.
Megaboom Bluetooth Speaker
This waterproof, shockproof and flexible Bluetooth speaker is the ultimate accessory for music-loving hikers. The speaker promises incredible sound and volume in a portable package. Best to use it when there is no one else around though!
A book can be handy for longer hikes, but can add to the weight of your pack. A Kindle though is a great option. It’s gentle for your eyes, light to carry and has a backlight for nighttime reading. And you can store lots of content on it.
