Hill Walking Basics

It’s important to have the equipment you need to keep you comfortable, warm, dry and safe for the route you’ve chosen and the conditions on the day. If you’re not sure where to start, or your kit needs refreshing, the BMC Shop stocks much of the essential equipment hill walkers are advised to carry, from map and compass to a torch, water and snacks.


When you’re out walking it’s important to take enough fluids, drink regularly and stay hydrated. The BMC Shop has a range of products from reusable bottles to help you ditch single-use plastic, thermal mugs to keep your cuppa warm, or built-in filters so you can safely source water on long days or even multiple days in the hills.



Being able to read a map and find your way around the hills is an essential skill for all hill walkers. The BMC Shop has a range of compasses and maps, including the specially created BMC x Harvey maps covering the most popular areas for hill walking around the UK.

Safety Essentials & Medical Kit

Emergencies are a relatively rare occurrence in the hills, but there are a few pieces of equipment that can make a massive difference if they do happen. From foil blankets to group shelters, to a torch and whistle, the BMC Shop stocks a range of items that walkers could need in an emergency.
