Embracing the great outdoors is a journey best embarked upon with the right gear by your side. Whether you're a seasoned outdoor enthusiast or just dipping your toes into the hiking world, having the essential equipment for the new season is crucial. Here, we present a curated selection of recommendations to elevate your outdoor adventures and ensure you're fully prepared for whatever nature throws your way.

As you hit the trails, keeping your energy levels up is paramount, especially during those challenging stretches. That's where snacks like Honey Stinger Waffles come in handy, offering a delicious and energizing boost when you need it most.

Of course, staying hydrated is equally important, regardless of the length or intensity of your hike. With compact and convenient hydration solutions like CamelBak, you can ensure you have access to water wherever your outdoor explorations take you.

When it comes to footwear, investing in quality hiking boots is non-negotiable. From rough and rocky terrain to wet and slippery conditions, a pair of reliable boots like the Keen Targhee III Mid Waterproof Boots will provide the support and protection you need for any adventure.

For those who like to track their outdoor activities and performance metrics, a GPS watch such as the Garmin Fenix 6X Pro is an invaluable tool. With its intuitive features and connectivity options, you can monitor your progress and stay on course with ease.

Above all, the key to enjoying the great outdoors lies in finding joy and inspiration in every moment. At Mountain High Outfitters, we're committed to helping you gear up for adventure and live your passion to the fullest.

Getting out into the great outdoors is easy when you have the right gear. Whether you’re a seasoned vet or new to the hiking game, there may be some things you need for the new season. Here are some of our recommendations!

Snacks for Hiking:

Honey Stinger for Outdoors

Energy is very important for hiking, obviously, but it’s not always easy to muster energy when you’re on mile 6 of your 10 mile hike. Packing easy to grab snacks that pack a punch of energy when you need it is vital, and that’s why we love the Honey Stinger Waffles! They’re a great way to get extra energy when you’re out walking, hiking, and exploring the great outdoors!

Hydration When Outdoors:

CamelBak for Outdoors

Staying hydrated is key on long hikes, short hikes, and in-between hikes. There’s no way around it, but there are ways to make it a little easier to carry water outdoors. Always make sure before you start any hike to research the trail and see what available water sources exist along the way. A Camelbak is a great way to stay hydrated but keep it nice and compact if you don’t like to carry a ton of gear on you!


Keen Outdoors Hiking Boots

Good hiking shoes are necessary for any trip outdoors - especially if you'll be hiking on rough, rocky, or steep terrain. No matter how long or short, you have to have the right pair. Depending on the climate you’re hiking in, waterproof boots are a must. The Keen Targhee III Mid Waterproof Boots are a great option for any adventure you want to undergo. Snag a pair online or in store!

Outdoors Electronics:

GPS Watch for Outdoors

We all love tracking our athletic achievements. With smart watches, you get to enjoy tracking your workouts and outdoors activities and even connect it to your smartphone. They’re usually easy to use and have multiple uses once you get used to them. The Garmin Fenix 6X Pro is a great intro to the world of smartwatches! 

No matter where you go or what you’re doing, the most important thing is to enjoy yourself. If you’re not having fun in the great outdoors, then you’re not in the great outdoors! At Mountain High Outfitters, we strive to make sure you’re ready for every adventure. So, if you need any help getting geared up, stop in and chat with our seasoned professionals in the shops. They’ll give you valuable info for everything you need to get out, get active, be inspired, and live your passion!
