Spring Walking Kit List

Vespucci x Fjällräven Spring Walking Kit List

Calling all you fair-weather explorers, spring is just around the corner! We have put together a comprehensive list of things that will help you out on the trails over the next few months. We count ourselves lucky to have Fjällräven as one of our nature-loving partners and kit providers. If you are thinking of getting any new kit this season, we would definitely recommend checking them out!

Clothing

Walking BootsTrails can still be quite muddy in spring, we would always recommend having proper boots.

Waterproof Jacket & TrousersAnyone who has been walking in the UK will know packing a set of waterproofs is never a bad idea!

Warm LayerYou can be the judge on this one, but the temperature can drop quite quickly in Spring, especially in April.

Hat / CapWe wouldn’t say a hat is absolutely essential for a walk, but looking the part is… Check out our Vespucci X Beanie.

Essentials

Mobile PhoneWe prefer to stick to a proper map, but always good to have a fully charged phone, just in case.

Route MapNothing beats leaving the stresses of the digital world behind you and getting lost in a Vespucci x OS map.

BackpackA good backpack is essential on a long walk, Fjällräven has a great range of backpacks to support the day-tripper to the overnight adventurer.

Water BottleStaying hydrated is the key to a good walk.

Cash / Card Make sure you have enough cash with you for that well-deserved drink at the end of the day or even a taxi if you have had enough…

Waterproof BagYou may be soaked to the bone but it is comforting to know your valuables are dry.

First Aid

Bug SprayA decent insect repellent should be fine for most parts of the UK.

Anti-Chafing CreamEnough said!

PainkillersHaving some anti-inflammatory pills or cream handy on long walks is a good idea, just in case something starts to play up.

Plasters / Blister PackThere is nothing worse than a blister!

Sun CreamVery very rare to need this in the UK 😉 on a serious note, always wear sun cream if you are out in the sun all day.

Optional Extras

Walking PolesThis is down to personal preference, poles don’t exactly win any style points, but they make life a lot easier for your knees.

GaitersA great extra to ensure your boots stay that bit dryer.

Vacuum FlaskFor all those coffee / tea lovers.

Portable ChargerJust in case.
