5 Things To Carry On Every Outdoor Adventure


It's always important to be prepared for every outdoor adventure, near or far. Whether you're going on a multi-day hike, camping, fishing, hunting or even just a day trip, there are certain items that should always be in your pack.

Here are five things to carry on every outdoor adventure:

  1. Navigation Tools: No matter how well you know the area, it's always wise to carry a map and compass. In case of an emergency or if you get lost, these tools will help you find your way back to safety. Make sure you know how to use them before you set out on your adventure. The KEA Signal pack offers a compass and also tools to help you be seen like a Signal Mirror and Fire Starter Rod. 

  2. First Aid Kit: Accidents can happen at any time, and it's important to be prepared. A basic first aid kit should include items like bandages, antiseptic wipes, tweezers, and pain relievers. You can purchase a pre-made kit like the KEA KIT and all the air work is done for you!

  3. Water: Staying hydrated is crucial when you're spending time outdoors. Always carry enough water for your entire adventure or bring along a water filter or purifier in case you need to refill your supply from a natural source. The KEA AWA is a perfect companion for this as it's both lightweight and filters all the nasties out of natural water. 

  4. Snacks: Whether you're on a day hike or a multi-day backpacking trip, it's important to have plenty of snacks on hand. Choose foods that are high in protein and carbohydrates to keep your energy levels up. Granola bars, trail mix, and beef jerky are all great options.

  5. Lighting: There is nothing worse (or more dangerous) than wondering around in the dark after you trip took longer than expected. That's why no matter the trip, it's important to always have a lighting option on hand should things go wrong. The KEA LUMEN is our go to for this as it's ultralight build and powerful LED can be used and both a normal flashlight and a head-torch. 

In summary, being prepared with the right gear and supplies can make your outdoor adventure more enjoyable and safe. Make sure you have navigation tools, a first aid kit, enough water and snacks, and an emergency shelter to keep you comfortable and prepared for any situation. Get out there and start exploring!
