Make that next hike a breeze with this trio of high-tech equipment
Steady Leki Carbonlite Aergon XL anti-shock trekking poles are built for comfort, strength and portability. The ergonomic structure, edgeless foam grips and built-in shock absorbers mean that you can hike for hours without straining your wrists and tiring out your hands. Its telescopic three-section design collapses down from 135 centimetres to 66 cm with ease. Both poles weigh about 400 grams, so they aren?t a burden to carry. $199.95 (U.S.); rei.com
Dry Keep your head protected in rain and shine with Mountain Hardwear's Downpour Wide Brim Rain Hat. The generously sized top acts as a sun shield, while its waterproof Epic fabric (the same material that goes into the company's rain jackets) guards against seepage during heavy showers. Unexpected wind gusts won't be a threat thanks to an adjustable draw cord chinstrap. $49.99; liveoutthere.com
Blister-free Hikers will appreciate the anatomic construction of Bridgedale X-Hale Trail Diva Socks. Made to cradle and protect feminine feet (there's also a men's version called the X-Hale Trailhead), there are breathable knits in the toes, ankles, heels and ball of the foot to allow for moisture management and blister prevention. A mix of soft merino wool, synthetic wicking fibres and mesh panels keep feet well ventilated without sacrificing the comforts of protective cushioning. $17; mec.ca
