In 2020, businesses have had to adapt in many areas. We see an influx of tech-related products and services. We also see brands prioritizing safety in their products and services. Hiking gear is no different. Let’s take a look at the top ten products to be released in 2021 that will enhance hiking, as shown in an article by Gear Patrol.
The Mystery Ranch In & Out 22L Backpack has 22 liters of space and two external pockets with zippers. It is also hydration-reservoir compatible and weighs under a pound due to the 100-denier Cordura mini-rip fabric. The Vasque Satoru Moc sneakers are a laceless shoe that integrates knit socks and zero-drop soles to promote a lighter tread in the outdoors. Additionally, the Hydro Flask Outdoor Kitchen Collection includes insulation technology and perfect sizes for portability. Hydro Flask has also created a full line of products for kitchen needs on a campsite.
The North Face has designed the Flight Race Day Vest 8, a vest that includes pockets for holding materials necessary for successful trail running. There is a patent-pending feature of a “water flask leash system” that makes for easy access and portability for water bottles. Nemo Equipment has created the Moonlander Table and Moonlite Chair as a perfect duo for relaxing outside. This duo specializes in packability and features tech such as adjustable seamless mesh. The Keen Ridge Flex Hiking Boot features flexible TPU panels inside the boot’s compression points. This allows for reduced effort in each step as you are already working hard during your hike.
Other shoes include the Tecnica Magma sneakers with grip soles and shock absorbing heels. The shoe contains versatility that makes it perfect for all different types of outdoor adventures. Also, the Salewa Dropline Mid is another sneaker designed around stability. The sole contains Pomoca rubber, which is self-cleaning, and there is a thermoformed heel cuff to encourage support while hiking downhill.
We can’t forget about sleeping arrangements during camping, and the Zenbivy Camp Bed is the perfect product. This all-in-one bed specializes in easy setup and comfort as well. There is a self-inflating foam topped mattress, a fitted sheet, and a quilt that can be easily set in place using the featured zipper. In terms of clothing, the Houdini Wadi Pants are perfect for outdoor activewear. They are designed with a fabric called Liquid Rock made of elastane and polyamide that make the pants lightweight and perfect for warmer weather.
