When it came to actually deciding what needed to go into my backpack, I didn’t have a clue; despite the excess of cat videos on the internet, a useful Patagonia packing list was nowhere to be found.
I’ve had the same bag for the past six years and what I particularly like about the Berghaus Torridon 60-litre rucksack is that it’s a women’s fit and has an adjustable back system.
Not only is a fleece sweater great at trapping body heat, but it’s very lightweight – making it an essential addition to your packing.
They’re comfortable and allow you to strip off quickly if the sun comes out.
– Microfibre travel towel – Buff scarf/headband – Warm hat – Gloves
I’ll always be an advocate for hiking boots. For me, the extra ankle support that they provide is essential.
A power bank and a high-speed charging cable are absolute necessities that have saved my bacon on a few occasions when I've needed my phone for navigation.
