TEVA Geotrecca Women’s Mid Hiking Boots £140

I’m not going to bother saying anything about the performance of these boots from Teva (I lied, they’re waterproof, eco-friendly, grippy, blah blah blah) just look at them! I mean, I don’t know about you but I 100% need these in my hiking wardrobe.

Mountain Warehouse Highest 20L Colourblock Backpack £19.99

Mountain Warehouse Highest 20L Colourblock Backpack £19.99

Smartwool Men’s Hudson Trail Fleece Hoodie £104.99 – £140

Smartwool Men's Hudson Trail Fleece Hoodie £104.99 - £140

This is a gorgeous hoodie and it feels wrong to refer to it as just a fleece as there’s so much more to it. It’s super versatile, slim-fitting which means it can be worn under a waterproof outer layer, but it also looks great worn alone and transitions easily from street to hills. Of course, it’s made from Merino wool, which means it’s also great at regulating the body temperature, a must-have spring layer.

Regatta Orla Kiely Tent Mules £55

The Orla Mule is the ultimate in comfort. Lightweight with a quilted upper and microfleece lining available in some absolutely gorgeous designs!

Vango Shangri-La II 15 Double Self Inflating Mat £259

The upgraded version of the best camping SIM we’ve ever used. Excellent levels of comfort and warmth are guaranteed and watch out for the mammoth 20cmm Shangri-La too.

Vero Moda Doffy V-Neck Stripe Jumper in Nugget £22

Don’t be fooled by the early spring sunshine it can turn chilly in an instant, so a bright funky jumper makes a great spring/summer extra layer and we’re loving this one from Ann’s Cottage.

TEVA Men’s Geotrecca Low Hiking Trainers £130

A waterproof hiking sneaker that employs a mix of recycled materials from top-to-bottom, this all-terrain all-star is durable enough for the trail, yet light enough for all day wear.

Kampa Kielder 4 Air Deluxe Tent £699

Once you switch to inflatable tents you’re unlikely to ever want the faff of poles again and this from Kampa makes a superb choice. Whether you want a weekender tent or are going away for longer, this makes a great choice.
