Play Harder with Vigor: Sunglasses for Hiking
With the snow finally melting and the winter season behind us, it’s time to get out, enjoy the warm weather and, of course, play harder. There are plenty of outdoor activities to enjoy, now that winter is finally in the rearview mirror. With spring in the air, one activity that we’re a huge fan of is hiking. It’s a great way to not only get in some exercise, but to also experience Mother Nature in full bloom.
But before you hit the trails and enjoy your adventure, you’re going to need the right gear to ensure that you get the most out of your hiking experience. Here are a few things to look out for when choosing your #PlayHarder gear.
Look for jackets that are lightweight so it won’t hold you back from playing harder while hiking on your favourite trails. Look for a jacket with an elastic hood and storm flap behind the zipper to protect you from heavy wind and rain, critical for those long excursions. A jacket that hits at the hip will keep wind gusts off your lower back. Water and wind resistance is important so that you can stay warm and dry on those cold, wet days on the trail.
Look for a sturdy and stable shoe, one that isn’t too heavy or stiff, that provides sufficient ankle support and breathability. Extra arch support for more comfort from the pounding your feet take on uneven terrain can be important for the long term. Invest in a good tread so you can feel free to take on some slicker surfaces with more confidence. Materials vary, from man-made synthetics to hide or leather. If your select climate is usually moist, synthetic waterproof materials may be your best bet.
