Springtime on the hiking trails can mean a lot of different things. Mud, impending rain, bright sunshine, chill breezes, you name it, spring has it. For hikers, you’re going to need gear that can keep up.

 

Waterproof Hiking Boots

First things first, hiking boots are one of the most important accessories for hitting the trails. During rainy seasons, waterproof is a lifesaver. Cabela’s and REI have a variety of options for all terrain, but be sure to read the reviews. No one knows better about hiking boots than an avid trekker with wet socks.

 

Waterproof Insulated Jacket

Sensing a pattern here? Depending on your hiking destination, cold wind and rain may be in the forecast, so a weatherproof, insulated jacket should be within reach. Something that can roll tight to be packed, but also protective, is ideal, like North Face. Also, this should go without saying, but make sure the jacket’s hood extends a little over your face. While you may not mean to hike through a downpour, a protective jacket can never hurt.

 

Waterproof Backpack

Having a waterproof backpack is a gamechanger. It’s great year-round and can protect all your essentials while you hike through the mud and the muck of spring weather. Something with a bit of space to contain your weatherproof jacket when you don’t need it, but with compartments to keep your tech, food, sunglasses and other accessories safe is ideal, like these options from Amazon.
