Once the clothes and footwear are sorted out, there's a lot more gear you're going to need to get into the trail in a major way. Sure, when you're starting out you can borrow stuff, rent stuff or buy entry-level gear. We'd expect nothing less. But as your experience and enthusiasm grow you'll start to recognise the benefits of great equipment over functional equipment. And that's where we come in. From packs and hydration to trekking poles and navigation, we've got the best of everything. Dive right in!
