Summer is almost over, which means our opportunities to go hiking are slimming down. With the weather so nice these past few weeks, taking advantage of the gorgeous outdoor trails on the outskirts of the city is such a must. What we normally wear to the gym just won’t cutting for a day of hiking. You need more gear and a few layers just in case the weather gets colder while out on the trails.
Finding the perfect hiking gear is a cinch. Start with compression pants or airy shorts. I love wearing pants to avoid scraps from falls and brushing trees. A good sports bra is also a must. I usually opt for Under Armour sports bras or Nike for their support and larger cup size option. Skip the running shoes for hiking shoes. These have more traction for off road walking. A backpack is also a must for snacks, medicine, water, camera and stashing your jacket when you don’t need it. Shop Outdoor clothing on the Gear Hunt.
