Re: Day Hiking Advice or inspiration

My gear usually...

I go out with an REI Flash 22. It can hold 2 water bottles on the side plus has a bunch of pockets for easy access stuff. I don't like to go any bigger really.

Inside my lenses go in a neoprene lens case by JJC Deluxe, camera (XE 2) goes in a small double bag, one is microfiber, the next is kind of a cushy bag with a draw string.

I have a Patagonia Houdini which is pretty awesome if it's going to be light rain or possible rain.

For heavier stuff, I generally wouldn't hike in it, but have a Columbia water proof shell and can put a fleece under it.

I prefer wool socks usually and some columbia water proof hiking boots, but really need some good sandals if I'm crossing water in a hot area. Otherwise I'll just wear a used pair of my running shoes.

I have some cut off wool gloves for easy camera access.

I don't really hike if it's below 0C or raining, it just doesn't get that way around me often, but would want some diff gear if hiking through snow or more extreme conditions. Over thanksgiving it was about -8 C though, and was still fine in said gear, no issues with camera either.

At around -15C, I might stop taking photos because wouldn't want my hands to get numb.
