What to bring in your hiking backpack – Spring

Here are our tips for a trip in the spring (April and May).


  • breathable t-shirts, made of synthetic materials (not cotton);
  • long hiking pants;
  • anti-blister/synthetic material hiking socks;
  • hiking boots (comfortable and tested, ankle-high);
  • light fleece and one slightly heavier one (the two fleeces are used for possible transitions from mild days to cooler ones or for the first hours of the day or as the sun approaches sunset);
  • windproof, waterproof and breathable jacket;
  • brimmed hat or headband;
  • gloves.


  • backpack (capacity around 20-30 liters, better with anatomical backrest and padded belt) with backpack cover;
  • trekking poles;
  • headlamp;
  • 1 liter waterbottle or “camelback” type water bag;
  • Sunglasses;
  • Sunscreen and chapstick;
  • First aid kit with personal medicine and isothermal blanket (to be used in case of heat stroke or hypothermia);
  • Plastic bags (for trash, dirty clothes, and to protect the contents of the backpack in case of rain).

Optional…but very useful!

  • Binoculars;
  • Needle and thread;
