This is inditramp's list of recommended trekking gear. We've used this trekking gear on our hiking trips across India and we've found it to be a cut above the competition. Our avid trekking team has put these products through a set of real world field tests to see how it holds up to its competition. Every piece of recommended gear comes with its rationale and a link to where you can buy it in India.
We update our recommended trekking gear digest five times a year. Once for each season (winter, spring, summer, monsoon and autumn).
Please note that we have an “honest review” policy. Unless stated otherwise, all products for review are bought anonymously by us. We only recommend products that we use ourselves or have received authoritative recommendations for. We do not accept payment for product reviews. More information on our review policy.
2018 has been a poor winter so far (as of January 21 2018) and our gear selection reflects this. Instead of concentrating on extreme weather trekking gear, we've dialled down our list for items that are more inline with a gentle winter this year.
