Hiking 101 Part 2: Selecting clothing and gear
This article on the equipment you need for hiking is accurate and useful for someone to go hiking alone or with others.
In this part of the article, the author explains what kind of footwear, clothing, backpack and 10 essential items you need. He talks about insulating, having a survival kit and some other things you may want to bring, like cameras or trekking poles.
This article was useful to me because I go hiking from time to time, and I am also in next year's outdoor ed class. It's made me think about what I will wear and what I will bring the next time I go hiking.
