- Gaiters are a great addition to your kit, especially if you are wearing shorts or heading to areas without wide open tracks. They protect your legs from cuts and scratches and can keep water out of your boots when crossing rivers.
- Personal Locator Beacon. Now as you can easily fork out $600 for a beacon you may be better off borrowing or hiring a unit you can invest in your own but they are well worth the money.
- Trekking Pole or the river crossing, tent supporting, crow bar as I prefer to call them.
