Pitch perfect: winter hiking essentials
We love a weekend in the wilderness, with a few refined requisites
We’re well versed in the merits of engaging in a digital detox, and we occasionally like to head out of the city, swapping smoke fumes and screen time for the great outdoors and
sleeping underneath the stars. And whether we’re pitching up in a treehouse or a teepee, glamping or gorge crossing, we like to make sure we pack a few striking hiking essentials to take to our favoured secluded spot.
Italian accessories specialist Piquadro has recently bolstered its backpack offering with a sturdy pine green leather version, complete with carabiner clip fastening, multiple pockets and easy-access zips. We’re fond, too, of Smythson’s collaboration with New York reusable water bottle brand S’well, a sleek water bottle and calf leather holder based on a 1920s beaker set from the Smythson archives.
We also recommend Geox’s rugged lace-up boots and a Victorinox Swiss army knife for when a spot of foraging is called for. §
