    Navigation

    Map, compass or GPS is so important these days, it can not only help you find your way if you are lost it can help you avoid troublesome areas as well.

    Layers

    In the heat of summer this may seem like the last thing you want to do, but having layers is very important. It can get really cold at night in the mountains so having a way to warm up is key. Also though having clothes that help with the heat can really be a life saver as well.
