First Time Hiking Checklist

Vibe Team | August.01.2020

If you’re looking to add a little adventure into your life, taking up hiking has so many benefits to getting outside and exploring a new place. To make sure you’re prepared, we’ve put together a checklist for you so that you’ll be ready to go for your first hike! Main things to make sure you have pertained to hydration, navigation, and safety. Keep those three pillars in mind and you’ll be good to go. 

Day Hike Packing List:

  • Your Vibedration Hydration Pack (serves as a backpack and water bottle all in one!)
  • Weather-appropriate clothing
  • Watch (We love Apple watches so we can record our milage and elevation!)
  • Hiking boots or comfortable shoes
  • Snacks to give you energy!
    • Protein Bars
    • Trail Mix

Day Hike Packing Checklist

(p.s. this list is for a short term day hike and you’d need more supplies for a weekender hike!)
