In spring, summer and autumn we are particularly keen to go to the mountains. Not to go skiing or to learn how to snowboard because it is late autumn and winter, but above all to go on foot. In this way you can admire beautiful views, visit magnificent places, climb impressive peaks. But if somebody goes to the mountains, they have to take appropriate equipment with them. We will not be telling you which shoes to buy, which raincoat will be the best, or which backpack to choose. The text is about what to put into that backpack when you go out on the trail!
Thermos and a skinshell for water
A small, neat thermos is a piece of equipment that should be included in every backpack. Let's start with the fact that although it is associated with keeping warm, it can also keep the drink cold. That's why it's a good idea to carry it with you in winter or autumn, as well as in summer, for example, when it's hot. An ordinary bottle of water will heat up quickly, which means that the water does not cool down so well and will not refresh for further wandering. The thermos will be pleasantly cool for a long time. It goes without saying that taking such a thermos with you during the colder months will allow you to warm up in every situation. It can sometimes even save lives! You can take a truly warming beverage - like tea with lemon and honey - to the thermos. A skins on water is so useful, that it does not even need to be kept in a backpack. This makes water more comfortable to use. We take a sip whenever we need it, not necessarily making stops and stops.
Microfibre towel and dressings
The first-aid kit - at least filled with the most basic elements - is an inseparable gadget in every mountain backpack. You never know when it will be useful - may it never be. But you need to have it with you just in case (literally). Another product worth using is a microfibre towel. It is light, absorbs water and can be used many times, but will not leave a smell anyway. Moisturized antibacterial wipes will also be useful - they will allow you to wipe your hands at any time. For example, when we want to eat a sandwich.
Buff and training poles
Maybe the poles are not particularly comfortable to carry, but in the mountains they can always be useful. If the slope is steep, they will allow you to find an additional support point. You will not have to climb almost on your knees. The buff is a multifunctional chimney, which will protect against wind and cold, and after the rain it will dry quickly. It is really useful and light enough not to overburden the person who will carry it.
