  • Functionality

    No everyday clothes

    Simple everyday clothing is only partially sufficient for a strenuous, several-hour hike. Functional (breathable) clothing, which is worn on top of each other in layers is better. This not only makes it easier to adapt to changing weather conditions, but also transports more sweat to the outside, preventing your body from cooling down.

  • Durability

    Good quality

    Hiking is not only strenuous for you, but also for your equipment. So pay attention to good quality when buying! That way you will not only enjoy your new equipment for a longer time, but will also walk easier when hiking!

  • Comfortable fit

    from the outfit
    You have to feel good in your outfit. Above all, make sure that your trousers are comfortable in the crotch area and they are not too tight when bending or squatting.
  • Consideration of personal needs

    right equipment

    It's best to talk to salespeople at sports retailers if you have special requirements for your equipment.

  • Clothing alone is not enough

    perfectly organized

    After you've covered your body with clothing from top to bottom, there's still something missing:

    • Good shoes
    • The right backpack
    • The right hiking sticks

    Shoes are in principle the most important part of the equipment. If you do not feel comfortable in them, you will not get very far. So make sure you have good grip (protection against slipping), that your ankles are protected, that they are breathable, and that your feet will not get wet. You should also have some freedom of movement in the shoe but should not slip back and forth too much.

    The best accessory for a longer hike and the best way to take things on walks (food, drink, maps, camera, rain cover, ...). Actually a must. It would be ideal if the backpack has a hip and shoulder strap, because then the weight is better distributed on your back and hips. Sufficiently large backpacks will save you stress when packing. Approximately 45 litres capacity is sufficient.

    Walking sticks
    Walking with sticks not only provides some protection against falls, but also relieves the joints. Be careful when it comes to your arm and shoulder muscles - be sure to loosen the joints and muscles in your arm. Nordic walking poles are only partially suitable for hiking, since they are made of very light materials and are therefore not unbreakable. Telescopic poles, which you can easily take out if you need them for certain terrain, are optimal; constantly walking with sticks is not exactly conducive to your sense of balance.


  • Fun while hiking

    Positive attitude

    Hike with the right equipment - this saves frustration and allows you to experience nature in a way you will not forget so quickly.
