Lessons on outdoor survival gear
Overnight hiking or camping in the wilderness is a wonderful experience. It helps you experience nature and its beauty. While camping and hiking in the woods can be a lot of fun, it is essential that you go into the woods prepared for any unexpected situations that might arise. Let us take a look at some gear which would help you survive in the wilderness.
One of the first things you should consider getting would be a pair of good strong shoes. It would be a disaster if you had regular shoes and they gave out. Walking barefoot in the woods or with torn shoes is dangerous as well as disastrous. Among the shoes for tackling the great outdoors the Maine woods shoes are just about perfect. These shoes are one of the toughest ones you will find. They are built for the harsh and unforgiving outdoors. The LL Bean Men’s Maine Hunting shoes are the most popular ones out there.
These shoes have been around since the early 1900s and have only gotten better. These shoes feature Gore-Tex liner that will keep your feet dry while Thinsulate Insulation wards off the chill. This shoe also features an all improved upper, with premium waterproof leather for a custom fit. This shoe also features a steel shank for superior lateral and arch support.
The next thing you should consider getting would be a camping/hunting axe. Among the hunting/camping axes the Gerber Back Paxe II Camping Hunting Hiking Axe would be your best bet. This axe is made from tough steel and has an axe head with 2 3/4″ cutting edge. This axe also features a black glass filed nylon handle to give you good grip. You also get a carrying case with this axe. You could also get an axe sheath to make it easy to carry around. In addition to this carrying a torch, sleeping bags and an all season camping tent would be great.
