    28 Products For Anyone Who Loves To Hike

    Finding the right hiking gear can feel like an uphill battle, so we've done the hard work for you.

    1. A pair of adjustable hiking poles sure to make you the most agile four-legged creature on the forest floor.

    2. A water filter that'll keep you from getting dehydrated when you've finished your water bottle and the river water around you seems *gulp*...questionable.

    3. A lumbar pack you can snag if wearing a backpack while hiking seems like too much of a weight on your shoulders.

    4. A Garmin Instinct GPS watch — the minute this shows up at your door you're gonna know it's ~time~ to leave the house and get hiking! This magic band has a TracBack® feature, meaning it'll help you follow the exact same path back if the trail you pick isn't familiar.

    5. A fast-absorbing SPF 50 that'll disappear into your skin pretty much instantly. There's zero weight, heaviness, or white cast...but there's plenty of sun protection!

    6. A lightweight parachute hammock for hikers who would gladly spend all morning huffing and puffing uphill to snag a nature nap in the most peaceful spot possible.

    7. A multifunctional headware (made from recycled plastic bottles!) that can protect your skin from the sun, keep you cool, and be an eco-friendly fashion statement all at the same time!

    8. A river knife with a 3-inch, stainless-steel blade that's sure to be a ~cut~ above the kitchen knife you were thinking of using in a bind.

    9. A lightweight Patagonia puffer that'll keep you warm and dry when you and your buds decide to skip the summer sun and enjoy some chilly night hikes instead.

    10. A two-way satellite communicator – it can help you stay in constant communication with others, even during solo hikes far out of cell range. Would it be cool to have a movie made about you? Yes. Do you want that movie to be about how you got lost for days in the wilderness? I like to think not.

    11. An unreasonably lovely collapsible water bottle sure to add enough extra space in your backpack for the "treasures" your kids find while you're on a family hike.

    12. An LED headlamp — it's gonna a be a ~bright~ idea to bring this along, even if you aren't planning on hiking after dusk. If things take longer than you planned, you're gonna feel way safer using this than using your cell's flashlight (save that battery!).

    21. A canvas backpack you can put on your pooch if you decide it's *their* turn to hold their own poop bags for once. TBH this thing has so many pockets they can carry just about anything they'd need! They'd probably suggest treats. Lots of treats.
