Safety Kit To Carry In Your Rucksack

In your rucksack, a hot drink, food, snacks, basic first aid kit, survival bag and a head torch (check the batteries) are the bare essentials. A map and compass or GPS should be handy and in use whilst a safety whistle should be easy to reach not buried in a rucksack pocket. It’s worth giving your footwear and clothing a good check – clean, reproof and treat as needed. Plan a walk based on your fitness, realistic speed over the ground, daylight available and, of course, the weather. Let somebody know where you are going and head off for the fun.
