Goods for hiking and tourism on the Internet: equipping for your first journey on foot
The challenge is that the equipping list you can see in any site dedicated to climbing can easily exceed a figure of 50 for its items. A novice is sometimes afraid of looking at it — he must spend plenty of money, and even if there is not any problem about money, it just seems to be a very difficult task to puzzle out the information. What should be done with that?
After you have chosen your route and downloaded the list of everything needed, you can set off for a usual sports shop and buy the equipping of the beginning level. It is certain to be of not high cost and allow venturing your first hiking. Sure, it will not be an easy task. The equipping is likely to serve you not for a long time. BUT! You will undertake your first journey on foot! Also, you can order goods on the Internet.And later, when the time comes, you will step by step replace each element of your equipment with a more quality one — light/comfortable/usable/reliable... I myself started exactly this way. Having understood my sleeping bag is heavy, I have replaced my sleeping bag. Having decided my backpack being not convenient with its suspenders all being torn off, and when having been tired of repairing it by the evening campfire, I have replaced my backpack. And so on. Believe me, that if you seriously combust with the idea of going hiking, you are sure to wish to purchase the most quality equipping.
