Hiking’s most wanted

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!


Deuter Futura 30L SL Ladies Backpack – £85.00 from Craigdon Mountain Sports

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.

You can purchase these Mammut Womens Mt Cascade GTX Boot from Cotswold Outdoor for £115 in the sale.


Hiking wouldn’t be hiking without a Sigg water bottle, which can hold both hot and cold water. And, you can get Star Wars ones and everything! (too geeky?). £17.99 from Sigg.

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.
