It is not possible to write a complete list of everything a person should have with them during a several-day stay in the countryside - it always depends on the type of terrain, weather and many other specific conditions that determine the current list of equipment needed. Therefore, take the list of all the necessary items here as a guideline, so that you do not forget the essentials of the equipment.
It is important to have at least some means of making fire
- Trousers - Strong, comfortable fit, preferably with side pockets and reinforced in exposed areas such as knees and buttocks. For shorter tours one is enough, for longer walks it does not hurt one reserve.
- Shorts - in warm weather, good and comfortable shorts are always useful unless you go into difficult terrain where long pants are a must. When choosing them, make sure you feel comfortable and made of breathable material.
- Sweatshirt - the most suitable type is a fleece sweatshirt that wicks sweat and warms well.
- Bunda - lightweight, waterproof and windproof. When choosing it, make sure that all pockets and zips are covered with the heels and that the jacket can be pulled down with the waist, bottom hem and sleeves against blowing. It is also appropriate for the hood to be spacious, but at the same time to be nice to pull off and cover the lower part of the face from inclement weather
- Bag - the size of the backpack depends on the length of the "chundr". For short one-day trips, a backpack with the content of 20 - 30 liters is sufficient, for a multi-day backpack 50 - 75 liters. Always choose your backpack so that it “fits” well on your back and you pack everything you carry. The big advantage is if the backpack has its own raincoat, ventilated back, comfortable waist belt and allows hanging additional equipment.
- Cushion - Nowadays there is a possibility of a large selection of different types of sleeping pads. It is possible to use a classic foam mat, which is rolled or folded, or many types of so-called "self-inflating mattresses", which allow greater lying comfort, but are usually heavier and cumbersome compared to conventional foam mats.
- Sleeping bag - choose a sleeping bag so that it is warm enough for the conditions you are going to go, light and easy to store. In general, the comfort of sleeping bag around minus five degrees Celsius is sufficient for our conditions.

- Footwear - for difficult terrain, high boots with a hard sole are a better choice, for lighter ones with soft ones. In any case, it is true that the shoes you choose are always comfortable, well-trodden, firm in the ankle and not completely airtight.
- T riko - their number depends on the length of your stay in nature, but for multi-days it is a rule to have one on you and at least one spare packed in a backpack. You can choose a variant of functional materials or pure cotton
- Underwear - functional and comfortable - always choose from breathable or cotton types in which you feel comfortable and in which there is no danger of sweating too much. This way you will avoid painful sores and abrasions that would surely make your whole stay in nature uncomfortable.
- Scarf - a suitable choice are multifunctional scarves in the shape of a "tunnel" from which you can easily create a hat, balaclava, scarf, etc. The classic three-pronged military scarf, which is large enough to be used in an emergency, can also be made a bad choice, etc.
- Socks - it is good to layer thin and medium-thick functional socks on top of each other for longer hikes - you will avoid (or at least reduce) the formation of blisters. Never forget to have enough spare socks with you - after all, your feet are the most stressed part of your body when you are in nature, so you have to give them exemplary care and keep them dry.
- Hat, cap - an indispensable remedy for sunburn and bad weather.
- Knife - In most cases, a classic "shutter" is enough, but make sure that the knife is well sharpened and in good technical condition.
