Other than the essentials like boots/shoes, backpack, tent, etc. What are your top 3 non-essential hiking gear items? The 3 items that improve your hiking experience everytime, but you won’t die if you forgot them.
My top 3 are:
- GSI Personal Javapress - Good coffee, no matter where I am.
- Sea to Summit Pocket Trowel - Dig a proper whole, even in the most gravelly soil.
- Stanley Adventure Pocket Flask 354ml - Being able to have a sip of whiskey, in the middle of nowhere, under a starry sky, is a real treat!
