WHAT TO PACK
Get yourself kitted out for trekking country
Jack Wolfskin trousers
The Activate XT range for men and women is wind- and water-resistant, and extra-stretchy for comfort. Zipped pockets are deep enough to hold a smartphone (£75 women, £80 men; jack-wolfskin.co.uk).
North Face boots
North Face has a number of shoes and boots in its waterproof and breathable Hedgehog range. Be sure to break them in at home to avoid blisters and chafing (from £110; thenorthface.co.uk).
You’ll want a light, weatherproof jacket when hiking; the La Cote range from Salomon has multiple options for men and women, in bright or unobtrusive shades (from £120; salomon.com).
