7 Essentials for Healthy Hiking
Hit the trails knowing your eyes will be protected with the Under Armour Marbella Shield Sunglasses ($100; underarmour.com). A three-point grip and adjustable nose pad ensure they will stay put on your hike.
The perfect pack
With the Camelbak L.U.X.E. Hydration Pack ($109; amazon.com) you can stay on the trails all day knowing you'll be properly hydrated with its 3-liter capacity. The pack also has plenty of extra room for layers and snacks.
These shoes are made for hiking
They may be cute, but Keen Whisper sandals ($90; llbean.com) are the real deal. The quick-draw elastic-cord lacing keeps your feet secure. And the special microbe shield prevents your feet from smelling like swamp.
Never hit the trails without a light! The water-resistant, LED SplashFlash flashlight ($12; ems.com) can clip onto your pack or belt buckle for easy access with its built-in carabineer.
Go the distance
Track your distance run and your heart rate with the Garmin Forerunner 220 ($300; amazon.com). The watch also can connect to your social media accounts to give your friends a peek into your training.
Slather on Bull Frog Mosquito Coast Sunscreen with Insect Repellent, SPF 30 ($9; target.com) pre-hike. It works double-time, fending off insects with a DEET-free formula while protecting your skin from the sun.
