Hey guys! I'm Michelle and I love hiking.
In the last year, I've traveled to Machu Picchu, the Highlands, and the Swiss Alps in pursuit of breathtaking views, and in the process, I've discovered that one of the keys to stress-free travel is to PACK 👏 LIGHT. 👏
Now, after having nailed the art of packing just the right amount, here are the things I've found indispensable to every trip:
1.This Carhartt jacket, which has kept me dry and warm through multiple climates.
I love this jacket because it's made with (tried-and-tested) rainproof fabric, keeps my inner layers snug and dry, is fairly light, and actually looks pretty good. 🤘🏻
2.These wool socks, which are my second bastion against frigid temperatures (and blistered feet).
3.This Camelbak reservoir, so you don't have to stop and pull out your water bottle every time you want to hydrate.
4.And last but not least, this lil' quick-dry towel, that can hold up to seven times its weight in liquid.
