    What to Wear Hiking: The Adventuress Style Guide

    Humanity often encounters the wild on brief nature walks, but humanity does not often peer beyond the veneer and into the real depths of the wild. To get there, to move across and step out into the true wild, to begin a real adventure, you need to be prepared. After all, we are talking about the wilderness, and it is not looking out for you. It operates by its own laws regardless of your ambitions, hopes, and dreams.

    There are many things that you need to do in order to prepare for your adventure. One of those of course, is determining what clothes you will wear. Women often take what they feel might be the most attractive clothing, or the most comfortable, but what is most comfortable and pretty may not be the most functional or protective.

    Thankfully many outdoor clothiers are beginning to manufacture outdoor clothing that is not only functional but pretty, and comfortable.

    Someone on a nature walk wears normal clothing however, someone on an adventure wears the right clothes to prepare them for that adventure. Women have a difficult time finding hiking clothes that are durable, affordable, functional, flattering, comfortable, and have the right fit.

    Yet perhaps the one of the most important elements of a comfortable hike is the clothing that you are wearing. From the tips of your toes to the top of your head, a thoughtful examination of what you will be wearing on your next adventure can guarantee a comfortable one. 

    To help inspire you we have put together a thoughtful list for each portion of the body that should help the Adventuress find the ideal clothing for a comfortable, and flattering summer or fall hike.

    Torso – 3 Practical & Pretty Hiking Shirts

    The typical women’s shirt you will find at the store is not meant for hiking.  Unless you go to a store with athletic or outdoor wear, you will most likely not find the clothes you should be wearing on an adventure. 

    Picking the right shirt

    There are several aspects that are part of determining what the right shirt to wear is. Fit, of course, being the most important, but keep in mind that you may be carrying a large pack with straps that go over your shoulders; if you want to pack lighter see our article here.

    Those straps will rub on everything, so even though a spaghetti strap shirt may sound cool, you can expect a very short hike thwarted by blisters on your shoulders. 

    While they may be attractive, or cool, shirts that are very open do not protect you from the environment. Here are three shirts, that are both attractive, and provide with an adequate amount of protection.

    3 Cute Shirts that fit, and offer protection from the environment

    Legs – Hiking Pants

    With the exception of your feet and perhaps your arms, your legs will be performing the most movement on the hike.

    Here are 3 options to keep cool, and protected from the environment:
    The following Hiking Skirt, Hiking Pants, and Hiking Capris have been recommended by Kristin Hostetter in the most recent issue of Backpacker Magazine.
    Hiking Skirt Hiking Pants for Women

    Feet – Hiking Shoes and Socks

    Your feet will be your greatest strength or your greatest weakness. Having the right shoes, and socks will revolutionize hour hike.

    Shoes: 

    If you are headed off on a short hike, you might only need a good hiking shoe with the right waterproofing, grip, and support. For instance, the Salomon Ellipse GTX Women’s Hiking Shoe has these features and was highly rated:

    However, if you are headed off on a long distance hike you may need more support, insulation, protection, and waterproofing like the Salomon X Ultra Mid II GTX Hiking Shoe:

    Backpacking shoe for women

    Socks: 

    First and foremost, we recommended that you carry extra pairs of socks. And extra pairs for your extra pairs. We found that if you change socks when your feet begin getting sore, it can help prevent blisters, plus fresh socks during a hike feels marvelous.

    Generally, what is causing a blister is not your sock, but it is a wet sock that creates extra friction.
    You can be prepared for this by carrying extra pairs of the socks below, and investing $2-$3 in sock liners.

    3 Things That You Can Do to Make Your next Vacation Better


    Every day we go about our routines. We have tasks that need to be performed, completed, over and over again. A vacation for most, especially if we are traveling is a means to take us out of that monotony and provide us with some well-needed rest. It is a brief moment of time that allows us to relax, free our minds, and really give us the "breath of fresh air" that we need to return to work with more vigor.

    Here is a small guide to help make your next vacation better. We hope to create the foundation you need to help plan your next trip. Each section has a small subsection with a helpful link, or app that you can use to help you move one step closer to your vacation. 

    Plan Ahead

     

    Decide where you want to go. First and foremost before you decide to travel you must have an idea of where you want to travel to.

    It may not be a very concise location, and it may be as simple as, "I want to go on a vacation". However traveling, just like any other activity requires a creating a goal and a plan that you can work towards. You don't want to get on a plane and just go anywhere. You want to go somewhere, ideally somewhere better than where you are.

    Obviously:

    So, to get yourself started on the right foot, determine exactly what place is better than where you are? Where have you dreamed about visiting? What have you wanted to see with your very own eyes? Once you know you now have a goal to work towards and you can begin defining your plan to not only accomplish that goal of traveling but to also enjoy the trip while you are there.

    Okay, I'm ready:



    Now that you have decided where you want to go, you have to determine how long you want to be there. Everyone has responsibilities that they must attend to prior to traveling. For instance you may have a job, bills, family, a house, etc that you need to take care of on a daily basis.

    You need to determine how long you will be on vacation, and make the reasonable accommodations required so that these responsibilities are appropriately taken care of. Unless you are planning to travel indefinitely you will have to return to your normal life at some point, it is best if you return to it in working order.

    You might be interested in our Skin Care To-Go Kit recommend by Fox News.

    What will you do on your trip?



    Another part of determining how long you are going to be somewhere is determining what you are going to do while you are there.

    Some people prefer that everything is planned out prior to leaving, others, however, prefer to have the freedom to do what they want. Some prefer not to do anything. Those that do not plan what they are going to do argue that traveling is not about having a schedule, rather it is about having freedom from a schedule. Either way it is good to know what you can do while you are on vacation. This tends to be more important if you are going on a trip with others.


    You don't need to schedule anything, but a having good idea of what you can do can help. Prior to leaving you can accomplish this through various means such as reading a book, or searching on Google. While you are on your trip you can consult with a local travel agency, or you can find things to do just by driving around town. Many people would recommend consulting with a local travel agency as the information they have about the things you can do are not always available online or in books because they may not have the ability to do either.

    "Most local travel agencies do not have the resources to publish books or run a website about the activities you can do while you are visiting their country, so they are great resources to find special unknown activities"
    There is a great mobile phone app called Taylor that can help you find food, people nearby, a place to stay and activities if you are traveling.

    Pamper yourself

    Whether you are out hiking all day, or binge watching your favorite Television show, travelling gives you the ability to pamper yourself, either for travelings sake, or by removing you from the day to day monotony of a normal life.



    While you are on your, trip take time, as much time as you can, to do the things you want to do, and not the things you have to do.

    "Pampering" doesn't have to mean that you sleep all day. While on vacation pampering yourself really can include doing anything that you don't normally have the opportunity of doing.

    There are activities that you can do locally, such as shopping, going to a spa, getting a massage, or eating out and meeting people. If you travel to a foreign country, there are really unique items that you can find while shopping, or there are unique people that you can build new friendships with.

    These activities remove you from the work-life balance "mindset" leaving you with an "I'm living" mindset. This new mindset is the most recognizable when you return from your vacation, disappointed that you have to get back into a balanced work-life mindset.

    If you either want to pamper yourself by enjoying the local culture, or if you want to pamper yourself without having to leave your room, be sure to find a great room with amenities while you are planning. Many travelers recommend finding a room with a large bathtub to soak in, a good TV for movies, and a great bed.



    Of course no trip is complete without some time at the beach, some would even go so far as to argue that no trip is a good trip without spending ALL your time at the beach. We won't argue either way but if you are going to the beach: Rebekah George on the HLN Network did a great feature on how to glam up your day at the beach, which you can find here.

    Be at Home

    Traveling is more than an activity that you do, it is a mindset that you have.

    We all have our idea of what the ideal trip is, for some it is going on some great adventure, for others it is about meeting new people, or staying in bed the entire time. What makes traveling so alluring is the mindset of travel. You may create a schedule for yourself, but since it is not your work schedule, you enjoy the things you do, on the other hand, you may not have a schedule and you prefer to remain in your room.

    As a catalyst to put yourself in that "travel" or "I'm living" mindset, make yourself at home. Unpack your suitcase, put your items in the drawers, set your things in their place, almost as though you were moving into a new home. Even if it is a short stay, make yourself at home

    Finally, if you are the adventuring type immerse yourself in the culture. Use Taylor to help you find something to do, or meet a new friend. Get photos, and if you keep a diary record your day. Find the best restaurants, the best beach, the best hike, the best attractions. By seeing and doing the best things while travelling, you can really enjoy traveling for what it is.

    Beginners Guide to The Art of Hiking

    "On earth there is no heaven, but there are pieces of it." - Jules Renard

    "I go to nature to be soothed and healed, and to have my senses put in order." - John Burroughs

    While it may sound like an oxymoron, there are very few activities as refreshing as a hike out in the wilderness. Certainly a hike may be exhausting, but the sheer impression left by nature on us reminds us that despite our hectic world, there is a calming harmony in nature.

    Nature with its sights, sounds and smells often calls the hiker to its deep forests, and high peaks. Whether you are aspiring to go on a long or short hike there is one major precaution that you should consider first. Your skin.

    Despite the extremes we encounter in Mother Nature there is a thin layer of skin between us and the outside world. At Adventuress we have put together a small guide to help you protect your skin, and try to ensure a comfortable hike. First, let’s look at the fundamentals concerning how to decide what products to pack when you are hiking.

    Ten General Essentials1

    Be sure to always take these with you even on short day hikes as a precaution. On a routine Day Hike you may not need a twenty pound backpack but be sure to include these items in some measure. The items on this list are only the essentials, feel free to take any additional items with you that will help you enjoy the hike.

        1. Navigation (map and compass)
        2. Adventuress Skin protection(Sunscreen)
        3. Insulation (extra clothing)
        4. Illumination (headlamp/flashlight)
        5. First-aid supplies
        6. Fire (waterproof matches/lighter/candles)
        7. Repair kit and tools
        8. Nutrition (extra food)
        9. Hydration (extra water)
        10. Emergency shelter

    Be Lightweight to Enjoy Your Hike

    When you are trying to decide what to pack, contemplate the amount of weight that you would be comfortable carrying. There will be rocks, streams, up-hills, and downhills that you must navigate through, while managing your gear. Initially when you start the hike you may not care about the weight, but after mile seventeen, you will certainly notice it.  

    “The lighter the pack, the more enjoyable the journey” is the mantra of many seasoned hikers.

    Here are 6 ways to get your pack lighter2:

    1. Reduce each item's weight. Modify items to reduce superfluous weight, replace items that were manufactured using heavy materials with items made from lighter ones, or exchange fully featured items for minimalist (and therefore lighter) items.3
    2. Weigh everything. First weigh every item and record its weight. Only with precise before and after weights can one optimize total backpack weight.
    3. Share gear with the others joining you on the hike. For example, four people sleep in a four-person tent, one stove for 2-4 people, etc.
    4. Swap gear for skills through reading and practice. The greater one's skills in using the environment and gear, the fewer tools you will need to carry. For example, by knowing where you can get water on the hike, you don’t need to carry as much.
    5. Lighten your feet. Hiking shoes are cheaper and lighter than hiking boots. Hiking shoes have also evolved to be a lot more useful on long distance hikes.
    6. Multi-purpose. Try to find items that work well for different tasks, for example a poncho can be used as a tent, hiking poles can be used as tent poles, wool socks(dry) can be used as mittens, etc.

    Water will be the heaviest item you carry. However if you take advantage of compact water bladders like the Camelbak you can efficiently carry more water without as much concern for weight. This brings us to the next Fundamental.

    Think Compact to be More Lightweight

    An important part of setting up your backpack involves taking into account the 10 essentials and if any of them are heavy cumbersome things, you need to consider what makes it essential. By knowing what makes it essential, you can take the fundamentals of why it is essential and find a more lightweight, compact replacement. For example-water bladders.

    Another good example is sunscreen. Sunscreen is a liquid that often comes in a mid-large sized container. Liquids are often heavy, and the container might take up a considerable amount of space. What makes sunscreen fundamentally important? It prevents sunburns. What is a more lightweight, and compact replacement? Adventuress has Sunscreen Swipes that weigh .10 Ounces a piece. As a plus they are thin, therefore they will not take up any space in your pack.

    The non-essential items that you want to bring should also go through the same process. Whatever you decide to pack, whether it is essential or not, think compact.

    Packing compact also helps you dispose of items without taking up additional space for trash. Which leads us to the next fundamental. 

    Leave No Trace to Protect the Environment 

    We do not advocate littering. Preserve the forest because the forest helps to preserve us.  Take care of it, because it takes care of you. When you have trash to dispose of, you have to repack that trash. Therefore items should be “easy” to dispose of. When we say “easy to dispose of”, any trash that you have shouldn’t take up more space, but rather it should ideally take up less space. Items that are easy to dispose of, either take up less space, or they weigh less after use. 

    Be Odorless to Prevent Attracting Bears

    While hiking the skin product you use, should also be odorless. The reasons why may be obvious. Nature in and of itself has subtle enjoyable smells, there are no a lot of people that want to smell "Wild Tangerine" when they are out trying to enjoy nature. Bears also are especially susceptible to smells, and according to reports lotions or perfumes may attract them in the same way as food4

    If you want to bring lotion, or other skin care products on the hike our products are odorless.

    Be Water Resistant to Prevent Hypothermia

    Water can ruin a hike real fast, just refer to essential number 3. Often hikers pack a poncho to keep from getting wet, and they pack extra socks, clothes, etc. to replace wet clothing with dry clothing. The reason being that water creates friction, and it can cause disorientation, or possibly hypothermia. While it does feel good to cool off in a rainstorm, lake, or waterfall you may encounter colder weather further along the hike. If you want to enjoy these things an extra change of clothing is not only recommended, but essential.

    Not to mention you will most likely sweat throughout the entire hike. Having water resistant clothing will help protect you from the repercussions of friction caused by water. Similarly using skin care products that are water resistant will help prevent redundant re-applications of that product.

    Some Solutions to Protect The Hikers Skin

    There is a thin layer of skin between us and the outside world and we should try to nurture it on every adventure. Now that we have gone over the fundamentals of how and what to pack on a hike.

    We will briefly go over some solutions to protect the hikers skin. 

    Nature impacts your skin in the following ways:

    • The Sun
    • The Dirt
    • Friction
    • Bug Bites

    The Sun

      Hikes are long physical activities where you are often exposed to the sun at high elevations. A sunburn is usually guaranteed. Keeping with our packing fundamentals earlier, to help prevent sunburns, take a lightweight sunscreen that is not messy, it is easy to use, compact, and is waterproof. For example our YouVee’s Sunscreen Swipes, are compact, lightweight, and don’t have the mess normally associated with bottled sunscreen.

      Other than sunscreen it is recommended that you cover up with a hat, pants rather than shorts, and a long sleeve shirt, but the heat often makes this really difficult. There are clothes that are meant for hiking however that are more breathable, and include moisture wicking to keep you dry. Clothes will also help protect your skin from the final three conditions that can impact your skin.

      Our Sunscreen Swipes were featured in Fitness Magazine.

      The Dirt

        Dirt, or mud, getting either of these or both on your legs, arms, and face is normal when you are hiking. While you may be miles away from a shower Adventuress has Refreshing Facial Wipes that will help you keep clean and refreshed while on your hike.

        Again sticking with our fundamentals, while facial wipes are not on the 10 essential list, our wipes are lightweight, compact, and easy to dispose of.

        Our Refreshing Facial Wipes were featured in Cosmopolitan

        Friction

          Repeated motions while you are hiking, especially on the bottom of your feet can create blisters, which are caused by the friction between your foot and shoe. To have a comfortable hike and prevent blisters on your feet, we recommend that you bring a few pairs of socks as the sweat from your feet will often make the inside of your socks wet, resulting in additional friction. Hence why there are also moisture wicking socks that will help prevent your foot from becoming too wet, by “wicking” the sweat.

          There is nothing like a new change of socks in the middle of a hike either. 

          Sock liners can also help reduce friction. Sock liners are meant to be an extra layer between your foot and your sock. They are generally made out of silk, which is especially known for its lack of friction. Since they are nearly weightless, and they are really compact we recommend them.

          Bug Bites

            Nearly left out of this list, bug bites are really annoying. There are a few of ways to prevent bug bites. So far the most successful one that we have experienced is DEET specifically Ben’s DEET, recognizable by the Porsche red spray bottle. Wearing long-sleeved clothing is also a great way to prevent excessive bug bites. Since you can buy a small bottle of Maximum Strength Ben’s DEET that is lightweight and compact, we really recommend adding it to your pack as well.

            Hiking is fun

            Hiking certainly does sound like an oxymoron based on preceding information, however the solutions mentioned above are to help you prevent the things that often ruin a refreshing hiking experience. Adventuress cares about protecting your skin, so blisters, sweat, and sunburns don’t ruin your week and your adventure.

            Sunscreen Swipes Make Great Wedding Favors for Guests

            Featured in Spa Week Daily

            "Still scrambling to find great wedding favors your guests are sure to love?

            Look no further! These three favors will be appreciated by everyone on your guest list.

            Wedding season is going strong, which means if your guests are anything like us they’ve probably already attended a handful of nuptials already. We’ve started to notice that wedding favors these days are all starting to look the same and we’re sure your friends have too. Customized shot glasses, door hangers, and koozies were fun at first, but now they just pile up in a junk drawer never to be seen again.

            Why waste your wedding budget on something that will just be tossed or forgotten?

            Instead, give your guests a keepsake they’ll actually use and think of you fondly when they do."

            Overcoming Fear.

            It’s not every day that an avid rock climber of 20 years admits she started in the sport with a healthy fear of heights. But that’s precisely how our featured Adventuress Dawn began…barely able to stand at the edge of a cliff.

            Of course, it was the ultimate challenge of overcoming her fear that pushed Dawn headlong into the climbing world. There she found a belief in her own abilities, trust in those around her and a whole new level of confidence: the kind of confidence that once allowed her to spend the night camping on a Portaledge suspended 500 feet off the ground.

            From City Rocks, Idaho where Dawn first learned to anchor her own gear, to picturesque Moab, Utah, to the Needles in Custer State Park, South Dakota, she's embraced the mental and physical rigors of climbing. And preparation is her key for the demands the ascent puts on her body and equipment, as well as the brutal elements that come with hours of exposure to searing sun and anything else a mountain can throw her way.

            With both feet firmly on the ground Dawn does anything but give her body, or her skin, much of a break. She’s been a serious runner since high school (completing the Milwaukee Lakefront Marathon in 2011) and loves riding everything on two wheels as often as she can, from her mountain and road bikes to her Honda CB350.

            While she enjoys her day job as a grant writer and researcher for a tech college, it’s clear Dawn’s happiness is directly proportional to her time outdoors pushing limits. Next stop? Someday she hopes to see the top of Devil’s Tower – a sheer-faced national monument that juts nearly one mile high into the Wyoming sky. We hope you get there soon, Dawn. Just remember to take your Adventuress Skin Care and a camera, because you won’t catch us up there.

            Do you know of any blog-worthy adventuresses out there, who are seeking a challenge and look good doing so? Tell us about it in the comments!

            Lady Biker Makes a Difference for Children with Cancer

            Dawn Johnson, founder of Michigan’s Lady Biker Day, is proof that women change the world through simple acts.

            Dawn was raised by her parents to live life to its fullest. Being inside playing video games and watching TV was never an option when she was a child and instead she spent her days roaming the great outdoors. Throughout her adult life she never lost her passion for exploration. Which is why, once Dawn’s children were grown and she heard co-workers talk about their road bike adventures she was hooked on the idea of the open road. She enrolled in a biker safety certification class, purchased her first motorcycle and took off.

            Dawn quickly found there were few women bikers and was disappointed by the lack of camaraderie she had anticipated. Not one to be deterred, she created Lady Biker Day as a way to bring together women who share a passion for biking. What started out in 2001 as a small, one-day event has turned into a two-day event held yearly and draws women bikers from across the state of Michigan and Ontario, Canada to Northern Michigan.

            As the event grew, Dawn and the attendees decided to turn their time together into something more than just biking; they have turned the event into an outlet to advocate for women and children. The event now focuses on a love for road biking, supporting women entrepreneurs and raising money for Camp Quality, a camp that allows children with cancer to be kids again.

            Eight years ago, as part of their advocacy and awareness efforts, Dawn invited Eleanor West, Director of Camp Quality, to give a presentation on the mission of the camp. The women of Lady Biker Day were more than enthusiastic to support the camps efforts. In fact, they have not only worked towards raising money for Camp Quality but have fueled their fire by adding a competitive component to their fundraising. Their passion has paid off and they have raised more than $100,000 for Camp Quality in just eight years.

            Fundraising is not the only way the Lady Bikers show support for Camp Quality. Many of the bikers spend time visiting with the children and donating their time and talents to the camps. Due to the need for such facilities around the country, Michigan now has two Camp Qualities, one located in SE Michigan and another in Lake Ann, Michigan.

            Through her simple act of bringing women together Dawn has indeed made an impact on hundreds of children, the camp that serves them and women who are passionate about biking and Camp Quality. In addition to her commitment to Camp Quality and Lady Biker Day, Dawn is fully committed to her family and country.

            Due to her status as the founder of Lady Bike Day, she is frequently connected with women who pioneered the biking culture back in the 40s and who remember those days as the best of their lives. Dawn is pleased to see that women are one of the fastest grown demographic segments for the biking industry and that more and more of us are experiencing the gift of road biking. 

            The Adventuress team would like to tip our hats to women around the world who are making a difference locally, regionally or globally. If we could feature you or someone you know in a future article please contact us at Michele@goadventuress.com. It’s the adventuress spirit in each of us that changes the world for the better!
