The Preparing to Hike section is “coming soon”, and will include information on Diet, Exercise and Hiking Gear… In terms of ‘Recommended Equipment / Gear’… For now, we suggest you check out a unique hat that keeps you cool while protecting your head, face and eyes from the harmful rays of the sun.
I’ve worn an Urban Canairie hat on hikes in the Caribbean and North America and I can tell you that it is lightweight and well ventilated. Even when the sun isn’t beating down on me, it keeps the bugs off my head when I’m bush-whacking, without making my head overheat. This is the perfect hat for hiking in partial or full sun – It’s so light and airy, that I usually forget that I have it on. I actually wear my Urban Canairie whenever I’m outside.
