When you are preparing yourself for a good camping trip, it is important you ensure that you have all the right gear. It can be very frustrating if you get to your camping site and notice that you do not have all the equipment. You should also ensure that the all your gear has been selected carefully.
You will need a good backpack. This is meant to carry all your camping gear. There are three types which are daypacks, long-haul packs, and the overnight packs. When you select the day pack, it is smaller and can only be used to carry a first aid kit, maps, bottled after and other hiking essentials. Overnight packs are a bit larger and it will carry essential equipment that you need most and the long haul pack will carry everything you need for the entire trip.
Quality hiking boots are very essential for this kind of trip. It is important to select boots that will give you support, padding and stability to your ankles while you are walking through the roughest terrain. Also, buy a good boot waterproof spray that will ensure your feet stay warm and dry.
When purchasing camping gear, the tent should be the topmost priority. You should select one that is durable and will provide enough space for you to sleep in. There are so many types of tents. When you are backpacking it is important to choose a lightweight tent and when you know you are camping somewhere close to the car, you can choose the heavier tents. These kinds of tents have a bit more added luxuries. There are two kinds of tents. The first one is the four-season tents which are constructed with much heavier fabric and can handle snow drifts. The three- season is the next option which can be used any time of the year apart from the winter season.
Sleeping bags come in different varieties that offer accommodation for different temperatures. Summer season sleeping bags are meant to be used when the temperatures are higher, three- seasons is meant when the temperatures are moderate and the winter sleeping bags are designed for much colder seasons. This company will give you good idea regarding camping gear.
The other items are maps for the place you are going camping to and a compass which normally comes with the camping gear. It is important to know how to read a map before leaving for the trip. You should also have a first aid kit, flashlights, and lanterns.
