The Most Crucial Hiking Items… That Everyone Leaves Behind

The Most Crucial Hiking Items… That Everyone Leaves Behind

We at Ramblers Worldwide Holidays have provided items to include on your foolproof checklist.

The first item on the checklist – have several checklists! Create an equipment checklist and a separate food checklist. Make sure your food checklist is broken down by meal – don’t just stuff some protein bars and fruit into a bag, or soon you’ll be wishing for your walk to be over!

Second – remember Tupperware and zip lock bags! Zip lock bags are brilliant for keeping food dry, and save on weight and space in your pack. Next, don’t neglect a deck of cards. You would be surprised by how often a rainy night has been cheered up by an impromptu game of poker!

Perhaps most crucially of all: tape. It’s the item people seem to leave out the most, yet the biggest life saver of all. You would be amazed how often walkers find a rip in their pack, or the heel of their walking boot suddenly comes loose – and a roll of strong duct tape is the perfect quick fix to save the day!
