Best Uses

As hiking becomes more popular worldwide the range of gear available to newcomers becomes more and more confusing as does the advice being offered. This guide has been written for those who are new to hiking and are seeking guidance on how to gear up. The focus of this eBook is on single day hiking i.e. hikes of several hours to a full day in length but not overnight or multi day hikes.

This guide is not for those who have extensive hiking experience or who are already multi day hikers.
