At night, you’ll want a Black Diamond Spot, with its bright and fully dimmable beam and long-lasting battery. Bonus: There’s a lock on the button so it doesn’t turn on at the bottom of your bag while you're day-hiking.
Light your campfire kindling or your cooking stove with one of these necessities.
If you’re backpacking in the woods, you’ll most likely need a light bear canister for storing food, toiletries, and anything else that smells. Just be sure to keep it away from your tent, and pin it up against something heavy like logs.
The super-versatile staple serves as a sweat-absorbing headband, dish rag, sun shade in your tent, a bindle-style daypack, and much more.
You’ll want long underwear, hiking pants, a base layer like a workout shirt, a waterproof windbreaker or shell, and a warm yet lightweight puffy jacket. Opt for synthetic or wool fabrics always.
We know, we know…packing sunscreen for an outdoor adventure is second nature by now. Be sure to choose a product with broad spectrum SPF 30 protection.
Seek out a product with SPF protection. Not only does it keep your lips hydrated, but also it shields your lips from harmful UV rays.
