Hill Walking Kit List
Our expert guide to hill walking essentials
It has been a great start to the summer hillwalking season in the UK this year. While we would still strongly advise packing your waterproof; suncream, sun hat and sunglasses have been important additions to our excursions into the hills.
Come rain or shine, our expert guide explains the hillwalking essentials you need for a classic day in the hills.
We tend to eat like hobbits when we’re out walking. After all, when else do you get to eat breakfast, second breakfast, and elevenses?
Make sure you pack yourself a good meal and take a few extra high energy snacks too. You may not think you’ll eat it all, but you never know what delays you may face when out and about and there’s nothing worse than being hungry on the hill! (If you don’t eat it, at least you’ve got tomorrow’s lunch sorted!)
If you have the space, then taking something like the BruKit will make it easy to whip up a fresh brew or wam food!
Water: We all know the importance of staying hydrated, but it’s amazing how often we forget to take a flask of water with us when we head out for the day! Make sure that you’ve got enough water for your day out. A titanium flask helps you keep your load light.
