Do you enjoy hiking? Hiking can include strolling in your local area or traveling internationally to trek mountains. Whatever your level and lifestyle, you need appropriate clothing and shoes to make sure you are comfortable and safe.
Hiking is one of my favorite activities. I love researching hiking trails in my area and going as much as I can. I use the website and app All Trails to find interesting trails that are reviewed by hikers for their difficulty and other characteristics.
Breathable and comfortable clothing is key to enjoying your hiking. Nothing throws you off course more than an ill-fitting top that makes you sweat profusely or shoes that cause blisters.
That doesn’t mean that you have to wear old sweats and ugly running shoes either. Many brands have specialized in modern and comfortable hiking apparel – many using innovative UV protection and moisture control materials.
