I was in need of an upgrade from the plastic baggie wallet I’ve been using since my first thru-hike and the Trail Wallet is perfect. At just half an ounce it’s plenty light enough for ultralight hiking and its array of colors, tri-fold design, and 5 pockets (including a zippered coin pocket) make it functional on and off trail. Bonus, the bright colors are easy to see in the dark depths of a purse or a pack!
10 Must-Haves for PCT Hikers
Review Date: Nov 15th 2018
It’s time to gear up for the holidays. Perhaps you’re working on your own gear wish list to prepare for next year’s trail adventures. Or maybe you’re shopping for the hiker on your holiday list. We’ve got you covered with this year’s list of hiking must-haves for everyone from PCT hikers to weekend backpackers to casual dayhikers. Here’s ten items we use on trail, or have recently discovered, that can add a little comfort, convenience or luxury to any hiker’s gear kit.
Montbell Trail Wallet : You should always hike with your ID, a credit card, a little cash, an ICE card and your personal insurance card. Sure, you can carry these things in a little plastic baggie, but those can get worn and torn in no time. We carry our stuff in this Trail Wallet. Weighing just 0.5 ounce, it features three slots for essential cards, a cash slot and a small zipper pouch, which is great for carrying a few quarters for showers or laundry.
