Following on from my post last week about my love of hiking, here are picks of the kit to invest in:
First up is the Deuter Furura 30 litre day sack. This rucksack will suit you for any trip, from hiking in the UK to climbing mont blanc. If my Deuter could speak, it would have many stories to tell – what happens on the mountain stays on the mountain though!
Next up are the boots – I adore my Mammut hiking boots they are like putting my feet into slippers. They are perfect for my high instep and I’ve not had one single blister from wearing them.
Rab is to hiking, what Nike is to running. If it’s a choice between other makes, then choose Rab – they really make the best quality clothing. This wind-proof jacket is an absolute beauty. It’s the kind of pink I like – bright, not pastel.
The jacket is available from Taunton Leisure for £58.50.
