The GO Outdoors Walking Checklist

Walking is one of the most cost effective ways to keep fit. Whether you’re walking miles for endurance, or a leisurely walk on your local trails, it all helps toward a fit and healthy heart. We’ve compiled a list of a few suggested basics for day trip walkers.

 Take a look at the list and use it as a guide to find the right gear for you. You probably have an idea about the basics of walking gear, but there are items out there that can make the trip easier, more comfortable and more enjoyable.

This checklist features a basic overview of what is available. Each walker is different, and you know your needs more than anybody, so use this list as a guide.

Walking Clothing


For stripped back wild camping, this list will be much shorter to save space and weight when carrying. If you’re driving to a campsite, it's a good idea to pack whichever items are relevant to you.



Walking Footwear


Arguably the difference between a pleasant walk and an unpleasant walk, getting the right footwear and thus caring for your feet is of the utmost importance. All GO Outdoors stores offer a free boot fitting service, complete with ramps to try the boots out at varying inclines/declines to make sure the boot suits you.  



What to Pack in Your Rucksack


For stripped back wild camping, this list will be much shorter to save space and weight when carrying. If you’re driving to a campsite, it's a good idea to pack whichever items are relevant to you.



Optional Extras


These items could help make the trip more comfortable or fun.
