What is your next adventure?
As a devoted adventurer you are always looking for your next mountain to climb, trail to blaze or new path to forge.
You know that having the right equipment is essential for any hiking trip.
Being equipped with the right tools makes your hike more enjoyable and safe.
We have put together a list of unknown items that you need to make your next adventure the safest and most enjoyable yet.
Some of you may be scratching your heads at this one, but duct tape has a myriad of different uses and it can come in handy during your next hiking trip.
Here are three handy cases when duct tape can come into use:
1. Create a Butterfly Bandage: You can rip two or three small strips of duct tape and add a small strip across their centers to create a temporary butterfly bandage.
2. Splint a Leg: If you or someone else in your party takes a fall, duct tape can help splint. You can use clothes for padding and of course, duct tape to hold it all together.
3. Reseal Food: At one point or another your food containers or bags will get holes in them. Quickly patch them up with a few strips of duct tape.
We advise keeping a small roll of duct tape in your backpack at all times.
If you don’t have room in your backpack, you can wrap some around your hiking pole so you will always have it when you need it.
Chewing Gum & Aspirin
Chewing gum and a small pack of aspirin are both very small items that can come in handy if your next adventure takes an unexpected detour.
Like duct tape gum can be used for a variety of reasons.
One of gum’s main advantages is that it can help increase mental alertness, improve concentration and relieve stress.
All of these mental benefits will come in handy if you find yourself lost, feeling tired, or just in need of some extra motivation to climb that next hill.
If you find that you have wandered further off the trail than expected, chewing gum can act as an appetite suppressant, and if needed, you can use the wrapper to help start a fire.
If you stub your toe, take a light fall or get any bug bites or stings, then aspirin is going to come in handy.
Moistening an aspirin in water and then applying it directly to a bug bite can help soothe any pain or irritation.
Make sure you watch for expiration dates on any aspirin that you pack in your hiking bag.
You will also want to consult your physician about whether aspirin is right for you.
Socks with V-Channel Technology
Do you know what the worst feeling is when you are halfway through a long hike?
We do – hot, sweaty, and uncomfortable socks. Nothing is worse.
V-Channel Technology is a patented sock design that helps the sock deal with moisture build up.
Vapor Channels are knit into the socks with V-Channel Technology and help create a path of least resistance for sweat to escape from under your foot.
With every step you take, air carrying sweat vapor is forced out through the V-Channels keeping your foot drier, cooler and more comfortable.
This means no more sweaty, blistering or painful feet.
Now, your hikes end because you want them to and not because of the pain you are experiencing from your overheated feet.
Socks with V-Channel technology also helps improve performance and make your hikes more enjoyable with long lasting comfort and dry to the touch socks and feet.
