Hiking Adventure Must Haves

Hiking Adventure Must Haves

Hiking is now the fourth most popular activity in the U.S. – and for good reason. Not only is it a simple way to enjoy the outdoors, hiking is one of the most accessible activities for just about anyone at any age. Depending on location, hiking can also be a year-round activity that has endless opportunities for the physical and mental health of those who participate. 

Whether you are just starting out or have made numerous summits, being prepared for your adventure will help you get the most out of your experience on the trail. The better prepared you are, the easier it’ll be to enjoy a stress-free day in the great outdoors. 

Of course proper footwear and socks are two of the most important pieces you need for a successful hike, but don’t forget the Bag Balm. The time tested formula not only protects your feet from the friction that causes blisters, it also prevents chapped lips and helps repair minor cuts and scrapes. 

Not only can you take Bag Balm with you just about anywhere, several of our most popular products come in a variety of sizes perfect for your backpack or hiking satchel. 

The combination of our simple ingredients resembles that of the outermost layer of skin, allowing it to restore and lock in moisture while allowing the skin to breathe which makes it the perfect sports companion. Bag Balm was created in 1899 to help keep the udders of milking cows in shape, and now it can help keep your skin in shape too!
