List Of Best Hiking Gear Shops In Nairobi

- Advertisement -

In this article, we shall focus on the best hiking gear shops in Nairobi. Hiking is a long, vigorous walk, usually on trails or footpaths in the countryside. Walking for pleasure developed in Europe during the eighteenth century. Religious pilgrimages have existed much longer but they involve walking long distances for a spiritual purpose associated with specific religions.

“Hiking” is the preferred term in Canada and the United States; the term “walking” is used in these regions for shorter, particularly urban walks. In the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland, the word “walking” describes all forms of walking, whether it is a walk in the park or backpacking in the Alps. The word hiking is also often used in the UK, along with ramblinghillwalking, and fell walking (a term mostly used for hillwalking in northern England). The term bushwalking is endemic to Australia, having been adopted by the Sydney Bush Walkers club in 1927. In New Zealand a long, vigorous walk or hike is called tramping.[3] It is a popular activity with numerous hiking organizations worldwide, and studies suggest that all forms of walking have health benefits.

Primary Spring 2023 Hiking Gear

There’s more detail below, but for a quick glance at what I’m using all the time now and why, here it is.

  1. Topo Athletic Terraventure 3 Shoes ( REI | Amazon ) – After using the Altra Lone Peaks for a long time, I can’t recommend the new model (7)  (here’s why). I’ve switched to the Terraventure, which is almost the same but slightly less soft, has a much better grip, and is more durable. 
  2. Osprey Stratos and Sirrus 24 Daypack ( Amazon | Sirrus REI | Stratos REI ) – This pack is an excellent balance of comfort, space, and durability that will work great for almost every hiker. I’ve tried them all, and the Stratos is where I landed.
  3. Garmin Mini 2 Satellite Communicator ( Amazon | REI ) – The Mini 2 lets me share my location and status with family using a text message. If I get into trouble, I can text back and forth with SOS/911.
  4. Black Diamond Trail Ergo Cork Trekking Poles ( REI | Amazon  ) – I don’t use trekking poles all the time, but they are a godsend on slippery and steep slopes, and stream crossings. The Trail Ergo are light, and the cork works well with sweaty hands.
  5. Gaia GPS App ( HikingGuy Premium Discount ) – Gaia GPS is a great way to get my hike track (a GPX) off the internet and synced to my phone. I use a premium membership to save maps offline. I also use it to plan my hikes before hitting the trail.
  6. Garmin Epix Gen 2 ( REI | Amazon ) – These watches are pricey but something to use 24/7. I use this for sleep tracking, workouts, heart rate, and for tracking my hike. It has preloaded hiking maps that help me navigate my hike.

Use your gear at home first on a simple walk and get used to it before you take it out on the trail. Unboxing and setting up at the trailhead is a recipe for bad times.
