What to Prepare for Trekking

For those of you who want to purchase your first piece of equipment going here a few tips. To buy the equipment you need for mountain trek can go on a slant. Much you could borrow from someone you know, and it is a good idea. If you are not going to walk again, or for the foreseeable future, so it’s silly to buy a lot of expensive. But do you know that this is something you want to bet on, it is my recommendation that you committed to buy stuff with high quality.
To shop for the most part in open-air stores that specialize in the area can be a way to get good consumer information. Dealers are often the users and to provide information outside expertise combined with service experience. Staff in specialized outdoor shops usually do not impose on customers unnecessary/bad stuff, they are generally more focused on helping customers to get their hands on the products they need. To check various products on the internet is also a good idea. Reviews and tests, preferably from more than one source, usually able to give a good image of quality and performance. Outdoor magazines such as STF’s Tourist and Leisure magazine Utemagasinet contains periodic tests of products, and the latter magazine gives regularly out specific numbers of tests of large quantities of products, both new and old. See Besteducationschools for camping sleeping bags.

To be weightconscious in the choice of gadgets is a long term investment. The lower the weight, the more pleasant hike. There is not an end in itself to lugging around of 2025 km, and with today’s product development there are many lightweight products that are of high quality. They are generally a bit more expensive, but not always.
important stuff that it is worthwhile to spend money on:
Backpack: When it comes to backpack, there are different price ranges, and several different brands. If you’re on a trip and can obtain food in mountain cottage stores, you avoid the lag on the tent and sleeping bag, which immediately saves a lot of weight. Then you should get by with a backpack of approximately 50 litres or less. If you are going on a longer trip and carry with you a lot of food so you need more space. Myself, I use a 60liters backpack that weighs just under two kilograms. It works in relation to my overall relatively light equipment well to longer tours with
camping packing. Personally, I appreciate that a backpack is a good suspension system that can withstand a gasket on 1520 kg. I also appreciate the features that I got used to, such as the cylinder head is attached to the extension just straps so that it is possible to pack on the height. When you buy a backpack, test pack (practical to do in store), so that you can see how much you get with you with different backpacks/sizes. Test with at least 1012 kg to see to be able to carry the system works for you.
Shoes: When it comes to shoes, there are plenty to choose from. Will you financially so is synthetic boots often a bit cheaper than those made of leather. Boot will naturally resist water well and breathe. It may well be a bit high to stabilize your heels. It’s great when you go on, among other things, boulders, and reduce the risk of sprains. Keep in mind that the boot will be a bit longer than your foot. You should be able to walk down without turning your toes in front of the boot. Myself, I like Lundhags boots. Lundhags concept is a hybrid shoe that combines properties from a classic boot with those from a rubber boot. It is not as waterproof as a membrane shoe, but dries quickly and weighs a bit. I have previously used diaphragm shoes in leather. They resist moisture better, and is experienced by many as very supportive on the foot. On the other hand, the heavier, and once they become wet they take longer to dry. It’s a trade off to get done and a general truth that few products are good in all respects.
Rain gear: It can be a lot of rain in the mountains: If you have bad luck, you get to take that it rains almost every day, and then it will be mostly wet sooner or later. Why is rain gear of good quality (preferably with taped seams, reasonably durable and breathable) a good investment. I myself use a shell jacket in three layers with sliding zippers under the arms for extra ventilation. Three-layer jacket’s weight is often little more than jackets with a and a half or two layers, but are often more durable wear. I combine shell Jacket, which is also windproof and breathe pretty good, with a few very light regnbrallor with zipper along the leg length (which is very handy, you do not have to lace the shoes when your pants are going on!). There are tons of great products in the case of shell jackets and rain trousers, and other options (rain poncho for example), so you can safely think about much.
Base layer: it is layer upon layerthe principle that applies in the mountains, the diverse and often weather p.g.a. rapid temperature changes. When it comes to the layer closest to the body is the underwear that apply. It will breathe and lead away moisture and sweat. Underwear in synthetic is cheaper than outdoor store more expensive wool variants. Select the synthesizer you can save a lot of money. Wool heat, however, often better than they, and has many nice properties. A base layer of Merino Wool (not itch!) is a smart investment: the wool works like a thermostat, heat while it is wet and
smells not despite the use for several days. I combine a wool base layer with a light t-shirt in the synthesizer, beautiful not least really hot days.
