As we have Easter break to look forward to, its important to look ones best be it traveling home or away.
Hiking is one of the most popular activities to do and according to British Mountain Climbers Association, wearing the wrong clothing seems to be a common mistake especially with the unpredictable British weather regardless of seasons. It’s not just in Britain can we have hiking weather extremes, what started off as a beautiful warm summers day can quickly turn into a cold, windy, stormy day in a matter of minutes. The rule of thumb for traveling anywhere is layer up. What is layering up? This means bringing a back pack containing multiple articles of clothing so you can add or remove according to the weather. By layering your clothing you are trapping heat between the layers and thus you will be warmer or cooler as you adjust to the changing temperatures.
Lets look at a few ideas of layering up and looking great too, here is our suggested survival kit for men women and children.
