Do you need a list of hiking, trekking, and mountaineering gear? The list we have here might help you make sure you have everything you need for your next trek. They constitute the essentials and then some.
Tent and Sleeping Gear
The size of your tent and mattress will depend on how many people will come with you during your camping trip. The number of sleeping bags and pads will also vary depending on how many you are in the group.
Apart from the tent, here are some of the other items that you will need for night in your camp:
Dustpan and brush
A pair of tarps larger than your size of your tent to help keep the moisture out. Doubles up as a sheet to serve as cover for the picnic area.
Air mattress and air pump
Foldable stool or chair
Depending on how you want to cook your meals while you're hiking and trekking, you might want to bring a mobile kitchen gear.
Propane/butane (depends on what fuel your stove/burner uses)
Lighter, matches, flint and steel, other fire starters
Dry good bin
Skewers (for barbecues with the kids)
Your food supplies (of course)
Depending on how you setup your camping trip, then you might want to bring any of the following as well:
Can opener or bottle opener (Swiss Army Knife or multitool)
Plates, bowls, cups
Pot with lid
When you go hiking, you don't need to bring all that gear the equipment listed above. You may just need and a few snacks if you're going on a two hour or even a four hour hike. But for an overnight trek or one that lasts several days, then you should plan your stocks and gear.
Campsite and Camping Gear
If you're going trekking, you're going to need your campsite gear. Yes, you will be hauling a lot of stuff, but they're essential to keep life comfy to a certain degree while you're outdoors.
Here's a short list of camping gear:
Small folding table
Camp chairs (ones that you can fold or tear apart and put together)
Fly swatter or bug repellant sprays
Extension cord (some camp sites have electricity)
Insect repellant candles (nice to have)
Duct tape (use this to fix pretty much anything)
First aid kit
This should be obvious but some people do get this wrong, so we're putting this on the list too.
Mitts or gloves
Running or hiking shoes
Health and Hygiene
Finally, you need a health and hygiene kit when you go mountaineering or hiking.
First aid kit
Notice that we didn't include mobile phones, power banks, and other digital devices in this list of hiking, trekking, and camping equipment.
They have been purposefully kept out of the list so you can focus on that outdoor experience. But if you want to bring them, then by all means bring your mobile devices along.
