    I took my first “real” hike in the ADK last summer and I was completely hooked- I just stumbled upon this website and am so excited I found it! I need to start purchasing my own gear, so far I only have my hiking boots…

  2. Connie Kincaid says:

    This looks great. Would be nice have as I try to earn my VIPP and hiking stick for the WV state Parks Hiking program with my family.

  3. Leta Brown says:

    Of all the items you could give away, I’m so thankful it is an array of items that are so essential. Thank you.

  4. Liz W says:

    Heading out for a multi-week hike late spring … would be great to have some of these awesome essentials in my pack! Annnd… since winter just keeps coming here in the Northeast – a fabulous book to read while watching the snow fall would be marvelous! Pick me, pick me! 😉

  5. Sandy W says:

    Awesome array of products that would be beneficial on my planned AT adventure. Love your site – your boot tying tips saved me from previous miserable bouts with blisters.

  6. Brian N says:

    I’ve started a hiking diary to log the adventures my daughter and I undertake. We started last fall and haven’t covered much ground yet, but now that the fair weather is here, we’re hitting the trails at full steam!

    Winning something like this would be a great help in getting her started with gear of her own.

    Great site btw!

  7. Linsey says:

    Hiking the West Coast Trail in the fall with a friend. We could sure use a kit like this to keep us comfortable and safe!

  8. Denise says:

    Looks like a lot of nice things to read and try out! I don’t think I’ve tried any of these products. Thank you putting such a great package together!!

  9. Kathryn says:

    Wow! Would be like Christmas as a child all over again having items I only dream about. When the weather is bad, spread them around the den and dream and plan some more. When the weather is good, pack ’em up and hit the trail! Wonderful idea!

  10. Sue Kirkwood says:

    I’ll be newly (early) retired on March 7th. I plan on spending a lot of time out and about in the wilderness. This would be great!

  11. G Trent says:

    I love all your recommeded gear, boots, clothing, etc. You are always right. I have purchased many of these things and always love them. Since I hike 2 or 3 times a week, I am always wearing out gear. This giveaway would be awesome. Thank you.

  12. Jennifer Wise says:

    My husband is a die hard hiker. I have been somewhat reserved about the whole thing but we are planning to go to Sweden and hike the Kungsleden trail (78 miles). So I am in the process of researching the best boots, back packs, and survival gear for me to take along ont he trail.
    At first I wasn’t real sure about all this but now I am getting excited and can’t wait to spend some quality time with him in this awesome place.
    This package would be a great asset to our hike.

  13. Linda S says:

    That is fantastic! What a wonderful way to kick off the spring hiking season. Don’t know about the rest of you but I am past ready for warmer days and beautiful flowers. Would love to try these products.
    Happy Hiking

  14. Scout leader says:

    I always carry a survival straw & a set of basic survival cards (these help to focus and keep you on the S.T.O.P. method).

  15. lkis229 says:

    These are great items and usually some or all are forgotten or not thought about. Congrats on putting them all together!

  16. Diana M says:

    This July, my husband and I are doing the JMT. We got our permits, and we are looking forward to this adventure. Winning these goodies would be great for our trip!

  17. Dawn says:

    Thank you for the valuable advice available on this site. It is extremely helpful in planning our upcoming Kilimanjaro trip. The survival pack looks great – just what I need :).

  18. Melanie Rogers says:

    I’ve never been on a major hike before, but I’m slowly building up the necessities so I can enjoy it! (Your check-list is a HUGE help!) Just finished a First Aid course and this stuff looks like it would be -very- handy to have! 🙂 Awesome website!

  19. Andria says:

    Hi there Hiking Lady! I’ve been reading your blog and have found it very helpful for a young lady like myself! I’m still a teenager and I’m planning on backpacking with my brother in the near future! I’ve been saving up for a trip to Ecaudor and this Adventure Survival Kit is almost a neccessity! Please consider me for this contest! Thank you!

  20. Jessica W. says:

    I’m starting to go backpacking pretty frequently with my husband, and this would definitely help!

  21. K McCormick says:

    Thank you Hiking Lady for giving me an opportunity to win this wonderful Adventure Survival Pack full of great brand
    items! I WOULD LOVE TO ENJOY THIS GIFT !!!!!!!

  22. Denise says:

    I love you! Thanks for all the tips and info you post..and the great giveaways! I am excited to know there is a community of women who are enthusiastic about hiking and nature…as well as being encouraging and inspiring too!

  23. Lyna Lee says:

    Finally a “lady” and the wild outdoors combined with adventure and awareness of wilderness, exploring its beauty while surviving. I’ve been searching online for women who go out and explore and enjoy the outdoors. I’ve recently become more interested in survival skills as well as camping, foraging and hiking. Not to much is out on the web for women to watch or read about, so I’m extremely excited to have come across your website. I look forward to reading about your adventures as well as creating my own. Thank you for the inspiration, peaceful trails.

  24. Barbara says:

    All too often people simply don’t carry these essentials. This kit would go a long ways towards making a challenging situation more bearable.

  25. Patricia says:

    Wow This packet looks awesome! Would really come in handy on my long-distance backpacking trips.Pat aka trekkngirl

  26. Sitting here snuggled in reading “A Walk in the Woods” by Bill Bryson dreaming of future hiking adventures and thinking this pack could come in handing up in the U.P. woods where I wander.

  27. CheeYan Ong says:

    Looking forward to hiking in Zion, Utah, the Redwood Nat. Park in California and the Napali Coast in Kauai, Hawaii in 2014.

  28. Maria Channells says:

    Wow, this is so generous of you. I’m currently writing a survival book about a teenage girl lost in the bush, this would be amazing to integrate into the book. Many thanks.

  29. Sharon Harris says:

    Nothing beats reading a great magazine in the great outdoors to inspire the mind and soul! This hiking chick kit will keep us all happy whoever we may be!

  30. Julie B says:

    I’m new to hiking and have been hitting all my goals in anticipation of a multiday hike. I could def use some gear!

  31. Deb Duvall says:

    As always your prizes are just what I need! ( or want). I. Reference your site to all my hiking gal friends and hubby too!

  32. katelin denkinsq says:

    i would love to win this adventure survival pack and add it to the rest of my gear! Helpful gear and some great reads! 🙂

  33. Angela says:

    This would be an asset to anybody that hikes. would love to have these items to carry in my back pack when going on long hikes. Very good quality products

  34. Elaine says:

    I am a senior outdoors enthusiast and although I can no longer hike, these items would be great for my cycling adventures. I would wear the pack or stash the items in my panniers!

  35. Gabrielle says:

    This adventure pack is amazing! As a hiker myself, this pack is the perfect one for me. It would be great to get my hands on it! 🙂

  36. Jessie says:

    This is one of the best survival packs I’ve come across. Many of the ones sold online seem to be lacking guides and instructions or come with items with very limited use. I’m glad that there are some good quality survival kits!

    I enjoy hiking and will soon be participating in the ‘Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme’ which involves ALOT of hiking and outdoors activities. This adventure pack would be great to start me of on my hikes for the new year!

  37. Maria N says:

    Found this site thru researching for backpacks for smaller framed women. I am just starting out in the backpacking scene, have been day-hiking the south west for a few years now. Thankful for a site like this and the wealth of newbie-friendly information it contains! Thanks for the time in putting up a site like this.

  38. Sarah says:

    I love reading your website!!! I would absolutely love to win this package. Even if I don’t, it shows some really nice examples of survival gear! Thanks again for always posting awesome articles!

  39. linda says:

    Great site, Fantastic giveaway! I know where I what I am gonna be doing after work. (Checking out all your articles and videos!)

  40. Rose says:


    I’m looking at getting back into Hiking!!! I completed my Duke of Edinburgh’s Awards Bronze, Silver and Gold when I was younger and loved the tracks in the various national park’s throughout the British isle. I truly loved The isle of Sky for its beauty and diverse conditions. I’m planning a very special and long Hike to raise money for Charity. The money I hope to raise will be to spread awareness and fund research for Retts Syndrome. This is a neurological disorder that traps little girls inside their own bodies. I am undertaking this hike to remind myself also of how lucky I am to be able to walk and talk and do the things that I love when many cant. I really need as much help as possible!!! Please Please Please consider me when choosing a winner. Many Thanks.

  41. Melanie Hurley says:

    WOW!!!!!!!!! I love this site and thank you for all your efforts, time and experience you share with us. I am truly grateful for all your help. I actually look halfway experienced when purchasing items for backpacking with your gear reviews!
