Summary

  • Hiking clothing is an ideal gift idea for people who are interested in hiking
  • Hiking gear can also be used for a range of other activities including camping, cycling and adventure sports
  • If you’re looking for a durable weather-proof jacket, searching for hiking jackets will provide you with durable gear
  • Comfortable, unrestrictive clothing is an essential when hiking
  • Features to look out for in hiking gear includes weather resistant properties (water-resistant, windproof), breathability, zipped pockets, stretchy material that provides unrestricted movement

I hope you enjoyed the list of hiking gifts for women. No matter who the hiker is, there’s no denying that they’ll need some practical and durable clothing. I personally believe that regardless of whether you’re a hiking enthusiast or not, you should always own a water-proof jacket that can withstand the elements and leave you feeling dry and protected from the hail, rain, snow and wind. For that reason, my favourite item of clothing from the list is the Women’s Checkpoint Lightweight Waterproof Hooded Jacket Freshwater Blue Black.

While having breathable jackets and fleeces is a must whatever the activity, T-shirts and vests are often the closest clothing item to your skin. If they’re not breathable, then you run the risk of having a sweaty, clammy adventure which can deplete your energy levels and leave you lagging behind. Avoid this dilemma by checking out Workout tops for women – 6 of the best! By the way, they’re not only breathable and functional, they’re also stylish and serve as excellent gifts too!

What’s your favourite item from the list? Do you own any durable jackets or warm, fuzzy fleeces to keep you warm and comfortable during your adventures? As always, please leave your thoughts and queries in the comments section below as I would love to hear them.

Hi,
Great post on list of potential gifts for a friend or loved one. If you are into hiking, which my partner and I love, then we know just how important it is to have the right kit for the job in hand.
In all honesty, these all tick the box.

I personally like The Women’s initiative black hoodie, this is definitely something the mrs would like.

Which would you pick if you had to go with one item of clothing here?

Thanks.

    Hi there,

    Thank you so much for your kind words, it is so true, you’ll be sorry if you go out in poor quality gear!

    My favourite item of clothing from the list is the Women’s Checkpoint Lightweight Waterproof Hooded Jacket Freshwater Blue Black but I also love the hoodie. Pity I have too many hoodies already lol.

    I’d love to hear some feedback if you do treat yourself or loved one to this clothing.

    Best wishes,
    Sharon

Hi Sharon,

So glad I’ve come across your post!

We are in-fact visiting Cumbria this October and need to get some pieces for my wife.

As we’re visiting in October a waterproof will most likely be the best option and I love the colour of the Reconfine Lightweight Hooded Waterproof Jacket you’ve included at the top.

I’ll be sending this over to the wife to look through.

Will you be writing a post on a similar topic for men?

Thank you
Damon

    Sharon · 17/09/2020 at 7:45 PM

    Hi Damon,

    Thank you so much, I’m glad you enjoyed the suggestions I provided in the post and hope they’ll come in useful if you do invest. I agree, that is a lovely colour. Thankfully most of the items come in a range of colours too!

    I certainly will be, and pretty shortly too, so keep an eye out!

    If there’s anything I can be of assistance with, don’t hesitate to reach out!

    Best wishes,
    Sharon

Hi Sharon,

What a great article!! In Alaska, we hike all the time up here, so it’s good to see some favorites listed out. I especially like the fleece jacket since it’s cold once you get up into the mountains up here.
I will say, I didn’t go much this year because the bears were pretty prevalent up here this year. They started coming around in May and eating out of our trash cans, so I was a little afraid to go this year.
Next year though, hopefully the bears won’t be so bad.

But, as a thought, maybe do an article for people that live in Northwest regions in regards to hiking with protection. Just in case we do run into a bear! Eeek!

Thanks for the great information!
Katrina

    Hi Katrina,

    Thank you so much, you are very kind! I’m glad you enjoyed the suggestions I provided in the post. I don’t think the clothing will protect you from the bears unfortunately! Better to be on the safe side, hopefully you get out again soon and they move on! That’s a great point, I’ll certainly look into it, safety is after all the number one priority when out hiking!

    If there’s anything I can be of assistance with, don’t hesitate to reach out!

    Best wishes,
    Sharon

I love the models, especially the threequarter pants. Hiking is my favorite pasttime, so I am always on the lookout for new stuff.
But as I am living in Spain, I sweat too much in polyester. Do you know if cotton clothes are available as well? I am aware that cotton is more difficult to turn into elastic material than polyester, so I understand why most sports clothes are of polyester. 🙂

    Sharon · 17/09/2020 at 7:53 PM

    Hi there,

    Good to hear, I’m glad you found an item you like! The polyester is typically better at keeping sweat away from the skin and has better wick properties, which is another reason that it’s so popular in workout clothing. There are some items available in cotton but they are more difficult to come by because they’re not as popular

    Thanks for the feedback.

    Best wishes,
    Sharon
