Finally – What to put inside it.

"A Walker with happy Feet is a Happy Walker"

My advice when putting your kit list together for a long distance walks (Or even just a weekend walk) is to pack as light as possible because everything you put inside will ad to the weight and that weight then has to be transmitted through your feet – and one thing I can say in all certainty is that “A Walker with happy Feet is a Happy Walker”
