If you’re like most people, you love spending time outdoors. There’s something about being surrounded by nature that is incredibly peaceful and calming. However, if you’re looking to take your outdoor exploring to the next level, you need the right equipment. I will let you know some of the essential pieces of gear that you need to have in your arsenal.
1) A Good Pair Of Hiking Boots Is Essential
You need something that will protect your feet from the elements and keep you comfortable while walking long distances. Look for a boot with good traction and support.
Hiking boots are one of the essential pieces of gear for anyone looking to take their outdoor exploring to the next level. They need to be comfortable, have good traction, and provide support for your feet and ankles when walking long distances over rough terrain. There are a lot of different brands and styles of hiking boots on the market, so do some research to find the perfect pair for you. Also, don’t forget about sizing. Make sure that you have enough space in your boots to wear thick hiking socks when hiking in cold weather. Shoes that are too small make hiking unbearable, and can cause blisters and corns. It’s essential to get the best pairs of socks as well, I prefer ones with extra reinforcement on the heels, boot collar and toe box and of a warm material like a wool blend.
2) Camping Air Conditioner
If you love camping but can’t stand the heat, then an air conditioner is a must-have. There are portable units that you can take with you and set up in your tent. This will ensure that you stay cool and comfortable all night long.
AC for camping is great for those who want to enjoy the outdoors but can’t stand the heat. They’re easy to set up and use, and they’ll keep your tent cool and comfortable all night long. If you don’t mind spending a little extra money, consider getting a portable unit that you can take with you on future camping trips.
3) A Good Quality Sleeping Bag
Sleeping outdoors can be incredibly peaceful and relaxing. However, if you don’t have a good quality sleeping bag, you’ll likely be quite uncomfortable. A good quality sleeping bag is essential for anyone who wants to camp outdoors. Look for a bag that is rated for the temperature range that you’ll be camping in. This will ensure that you stay warm and cozy all night long.With a little bit of research, you should have no problem finding the perfect sleeping bag for your needs. Depending on the season you may not want to sleep on the ground, you might want to splurge for a cot so you rest your sleeping bag on top of it so you experience the frozen heart first hand. It will act like a foundation for your mattress at home. Also try to find a sleeping bag with enough padding to avoid injuries to your back shoulder and hips.
4) A Portable Generator
A portable generator can be a lifesaver when you’re camping. If you need to power any electronics, such as a phone or laptop, then a generator is a must-have. There are many different types and sizes of generators on the market, so find one that will meet your needs.
A portable generator is an essential piece of gear for anyone who camps with electronics. It’ll allow you to power your devices without having to worry about finding an outlet. When choosing a generator, make sure to pick one that is the right size for your needs, and that has enough power to handle all of your electronic devices.
5) A Base Layer to Keep You Warm
What is a base layer? Well, for me growing up they were called long johns and they have become sophisticated, went into tech, and got a bougie name, so now they are referred to as base layers. It is the first layer that you put on under your clothes after your underwear, if you wear such things…They aren’t bulky as old school long johns and they wick away sweat and don’t smell. They’re necessary if you are exploring in a climate that changes from hot to cold in a matter of hours and if you are choosing to sleep outdoors.
6) A Portable Stove
If you are hiking for a couple of hours trail mix and a cold sandwich will do just fine but if you are spending a couple of days out in nature you’ll need to eat more than nuts and berries. That is where the stove comes in, you can fuel the newest ones with just twigs and make a proper breakfast with your handy dandy cast iron pan.
7) Sun Protecting Skincare
Are we still not clear on the fact that we need sunscreen every day? If you aren’t ,I am not quite sure what rock you’ve been under. But, alas you do need to protect your skin even in the colder months from the sun since you won’t be shielded while walking in the out of doors. We’re trying to remain sun damage free aren’t we?
8) And lastly a Survival Card Multitool
As thin and lightweight as this is you might find it helpful to carry this everyday because it will always be useful whether you are camping/hiking or not. It save you from having to carry a lot bulky heavy tools in your backpack and you’ll still have the necessities for anything situation that may arise, like the need to good fishing for dinner or sewing a hole in your pants. This multitool will be a lifesaver for so many reasons.
9) A Lightweight Waterproof Backpack
It sounds elementary right? But you can’t just use your school pack and expect it not to feel heavy after a few miles while filled with your gear in there. I am talking about a backpack that nearly weighs a pound empty and can keep all your necessities dry while not feeling like a boulder on your back.
So, if you’re looking to take your outdoor exploring to the next level, then you need to make sure that you have the right gear. The list of gear that I’ve given you will make your adventure a breeze with all the essential pieces of equipment that will make your trips more enjoyable.
Until our next rendezvous…
