So it is important that you carry a good pair of walking shoes along with a comfortable pair of jeans and t shirt which will help you to walk for long stretches without getting tired. Also carry a light sweatshirt and fleece jacket as because they are light.

If you are the types who like to walk in the mornings, carry a synthetic jogging pant along with a sweat shirt. Synthetic pants also are light and can easily be wrapped and carried in any bag. This will help you to be cool in the summer seasons and warm in the winter seasons. Invest in a couple of hiking and tracking shoes for walking long distances.
