Packing For A Hiking Or Camping Trip

There is no better way to spend your time than in the wilds. Exploring the great outdoors and reconnecting with nature will add some much needed adventure to your life. Spending a few hours hiking in the wilderness, or a couple of nights in a tent under the stars can give you a real sense of peace and a much deserved rest from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.


If you’re planning a hike or a camping trip this year, then it’s time that you started thinking about your gear. Getting the right expedition kit together could mean the difference between a trip or a life time, or miserable soggy holiday that you will want to forget. Read on to find out more about choosing the right gear for your trip, and how to put together the perfect expedition kit…


Choosing The Right Gear For Your Trip…

It doesn’t matter if you’re heading out in the summer months, you’re still going to need some warm clothing, and waterproof wear just in case the weather turns. British summers are unreliable at the best of times, and you’re likely to face a spell of rain or chilly weather. The first piece of kit you’ll need for your expedition kit is the right kind of jacket. The North Face specialise in outdoor wear, and have created a range of jackets that will not only keep you nice and warm, but they’ll keep you dry too. For the ladies, why not try the popular The North Face Womens Inlux Insulated Jacket? And, for the guys, the The North Face Mens Resolve Jacket is a real must have item.


As well as choosing the perfect outer wear and some hard wearing cargo pants for your trip, you’ll certainly need some great base layer and mid layer clothing too. In The North Face clothing range you’ll find plenty of tee-shirts, fleeces and jumpers to choose from. These come in a wide variety of styles, colours, designs and sizes for both men, women and children. These fashionable designs are great if you’re planning to spend some time in the great outdoors, but they will also work perfectly for everyday wear.


Packing The Right Accessories For Your Expedition Kit…

So, you’ve got your outfits sorted, but what are you going to put all your gear in? If you’re heading camping or planning a hike, you’re going to need the right kind of bag for your trip. The North Face have got you covered again when it comes to bags. They have everything from specialist rucksacks, as well as larger bags like the The North Face Base Camp Medium Duffel. You’ll have no trouble fitting in your expedition kit, as well as those other must have camping items.


Last but not least, it’s time to think about those essential accessories. If the weather is turning colder, then you’ll need to pack a hat and some gloves. As there’s nothing worse than being cold, and having freezing fingers is the quickest way to ruin your trip. To pick up everything you need for your expedition kit head to Simply Hike.
