Are you heading off to conquer a big hike soon or planning for the future? Then this ultimate hike checklist will give you all the essentials you need for any hike.
1. Apple Watch with GPS
The watch is great to keeping track of time and closing your rings, as well as syncing the watch to apps on your phone such as AllTrails and Ordnance Survey.
Make sure when buying a day backpack that it’s big enough to fit all your hiking essentials for beginners inside, as well as water bottles, and also fits you well.
There are a lot of great websites and apps for finding trails, including this blog but I would recommend downloading some on to your phone that you can access offline too.
5. The North Face Quest Jacket
The lightweight polyester material provides gentle warmth, but remain versatile and protects you from the elements.
