Spring Hiking Gear for Women

Spring Hiking Gear for Women


Hey everyone! A few people recently asked me if I’d make a video on Spring hiking gear and how to layer up at this time of year, so I decided to do just that 🙂 This video gives you lots of advice on what to wear for hiking in Spring and how to layer, plus a little giveaway with Home of Millican & Outdoor Provisions. Let me know if you have any questions down below!

    This video has such a nice aesthetic 😊

  2. Canadian Sled Dog on June 22, 2022 at 8:37 pm

    My favorite new piece of clothing is the 2020 Patagonia Nano Air Vest. I love the idea of breathable clothes with a wide comfort temp range. In Canada we also have the MEC T3 range which is super breathable fleece at a low price point, my long term favorite for active wear.

  3. Sarah Ainsworth on June 22, 2022 at 8:37 pm

    What a beautifully photographed and edited film 🌿and the content is great 👍🏼 ((little gripe though… background musick when you are talking- meant with kindness))

  4. Harke McBott on June 22, 2022 at 8:41 pm

    Well made video. Hope to youbsoon again hitting the traill . Cheers

  5. David Smith on June 22, 2022 at 8:43 pm

    What do you use to clean your boots? (send them to me, I’ll do them for you, ha!)

  6. Marswellb on June 22, 2022 at 8:45 pm

    Keep up the Good work! 🤙🏽🙂

  7. Red Riding on June 22, 2022 at 8:45 pm

    So easy and really good explanations 🥰

  8. Autumn2020 on June 22, 2022 at 8:45 pm

    Also, I found your comments on the Nula jacket very helpful; I’m also a cold mortal!

  9. David Smith on June 22, 2022 at 8:47 pm

    Alt-Berg are one of the few boot makers that offer a wide fitting boot, really important feature.

  10. Stuart Rogers on June 22, 2022 at 8:47 pm

    Very nice informative video, thank you Athena!

  11. Benny Swales on June 22, 2022 at 8:48 pm

    Another good video Athena nice to see you showing people what to wear and what’s available etc but I feel your becoming a bit of a advertising board for the big names remember you can get just as good gear for half the price and still be as good etc please remember the great outdoor s is to be used for everyone not just brand names all the best keep up the excellent work.?…..STEWIE

  12. Viaje ni Bree on June 22, 2022 at 8:53 pm

    You are now my go-to channel when it comes to hiking solo as a woman. How I wish I found you before I went hiking in Switzerland for the first time w/c I vlogged btw. My experience might have been better!

  13. Autumn2020 on June 22, 2022 at 8:55 pm

    I really like the look of the Millican Fraser 25, but the back length seems quite long. Do you feel that the Millican packs are good for men and women, as they have no female specific fit?

  14. Kevin Heck on June 22, 2022 at 8:58 pm

    Great video!

  15. Neil on June 22, 2022 at 9:01 pm

    I can vouch for smartwool clothing, so comfy and warm 😀

  16. Ted Semonis on June 22, 2022 at 9:02 pm

    Let’s say you have to cook or be around a fire. The leggings that you are wearing are they able to melt to you if a spark hits them. And if you hike you know about 550 line and how it gets when melting the ends, will your pants do the same?

  17. Steve Hedge on June 22, 2022 at 9:03 pm

    Brilliant, love your videos for a relaxing lunchtime break, gets you away from the stresses of work, always gets me ready planning for my Welsh trips, liked & shared – Steve

  18. Robert John Kerr on June 22, 2022 at 9:04 pm

    Nice one ….👍… didn’t see anything that would suit me 😂…. But yeah nice bit of advice for everyone regarding layers … I have definitely been trying to tweak my layering lately…. and I find like you……..you gets what you pays for ….. Relaxing video and well edited 👍👍👍

  19. Cannibal Manimal on June 22, 2022 at 9:04 pm

    So when you say “vest” we say T-shirt, when we say “vest” you say “gilet”…right?

  20. Craig Bruce on June 22, 2022 at 9:06 pm

    Always enjoy.

  21. Ken Hutchinson on June 22, 2022 at 9:06 pm

    Another nice video. On a practical point how do you protect your skin when out hiking all day? Regards Ken

  22. Katha R. Ina on June 22, 2022 at 9:06 pm

    Thank you for the beautiful asthetics in the video and for the explanation about your layered gear for the inbetween weather! I’m a bit late, but can you say anything about how the patagonia longsleeve holds up esp in regard to smells? When I’m outdoors I often wear clothes several times without washing in between and I fear the polyester part will make the shirt stink 🙂 Thanks in advance!

  23. Hope Blackburn on June 22, 2022 at 9:07 pm

    I would love to know how you make your sourdough bread!! I am in the midst of attempting to make sourdough and I’ve been inspired by your creations!!

  24. Steven Keery on June 22, 2022 at 9:07 pm

    Hi! Athena, that’s a nice shot of Oslo surrounded by blue- bells, you should make an enlargement for your wall. Best wishes to all of you.

  25. Bill Baynes on June 22, 2022 at 9:08 pm

    Nice one!

  26. Саша Герасименко on June 22, 2022 at 9:09 pm

    so atmospheric video

  27. Natalie Berg on June 22, 2022 at 9:12 pm

    Such a well made and informative video 🙂

  28. Bajingo on June 22, 2022 at 9:12 pm

    Shame they’re all so pricey 😩 I do love the look of the leggings though.

  29. verykeen2please on June 22, 2022 at 9:14 pm

    i do like that pack, and as yellow is a must have colour haha. Its a new brand for me to check out> Thanks for the intro to Findra, good customer service and early days (Boris hikes) seem like good products

  30. Kirsten Simpson on June 22, 2022 at 9:15 pm

    What camera do you use!?!?? The clarity and colours in this are absolutely beautiful!

  31. jaydunc2k1 on June 22, 2022 at 9:17 pm

    Montane and Hagloffs leggings look like cheaper versions of the Fjallraven ones, is there a difference in weight & function?

  32. Charlie on June 22, 2022 at 9:20 pm

    I’m so sad i can’t enter the giveaway, but beautiful video and good luck to everyone that can 🙂

  33. Nina H on June 22, 2022 at 9:21 pm

    Lovely scenery in this video! Especially the bit where Oslo was sitting in the flower patch 🌞 just wanted to enter the giveaway but sadly I live in Germany 😔 wish everyone that can enter good luck!

  34. Dana Santos on June 22, 2022 at 9:21 pm

    Loved this video format, informative with pretty scenery!

  35. Bubbly Emma on June 22, 2022 at 9:22 pm

    Loved it !!

  36. schwarck on June 22, 2022 at 9:23 pm

    I can’t wait for when Outdoor Provisions are able to ship to Denmark ☺️ they look so delicious.
    Another lovely and informative video 🌸

  37. UKArtlover on June 22, 2022 at 9:24 pm

    Beautiful setting, I like the little red riding hood look Athena haha , I wonder if it comes with optional impractical but fetching gingham lined basket 😉 xMark

  38. Michael Atkinson on June 22, 2022 at 9:25 pm

    Good morning mate. Anything which helps & encourages ladies of any age to get into the hills whether solo or with others is great. I’m always happy to see evidence of this in the Lake District. As I’ve said before you’re inspiring a lot of ladies to do just that. Lovely couple of Oslo shots too & I can’t wait to be stretched out in the warm grass like you at 8:52 once more when this lockdown is all over. All the best xx

  39. Scottish Adventures on June 22, 2022 at 9:26 pm

    Brilliant video. Looking forward to getting back to the mountains.

  40. Nick Vincent on June 22, 2022 at 9:29 pm

    Beautiful ancient woodland, your filming is visually poetic and pure joy.

  41. yo mo on June 22, 2022 at 9:31 pm

    Great video. Need to go shopping now.

  42. Marcus Roy on June 22, 2022 at 9:31 pm


  43. Alice in Reality on June 22, 2022 at 9:32 pm

    Great video, thank you for sharing, I was one of the people that requested it 🙂 Hope you are all safe and well xxxx

  44. Pelexterpvp on June 22, 2022 at 9:32 pm

    Lovely vid. Relaxing and I like your pronunciation of Haglöfs. From a Swede. 😊

  45. ren adorada on June 22, 2022 at 9:34 pm

    Awesome! I love your character, strong woman

  46. Iain Sanders on June 22, 2022 at 9:34 pm

    I think I’ll give this a pass – you never know what embarrassing stuff might come up..

  47. Benny Swales on June 22, 2022 at 9:34 pm

    Still a good well presented video hope you don’t mind my opinion Athena but I like to be constructive at times.?.😃😃😃 stewart

  48. Steven Keery on June 22, 2022 at 9:34 pm

    Nice photo of you too in the blue bell wood, at the end of the video.

    I have this image in my head of poor Harvey following along behind you, carrying a wardrobe, filled with all your modelling outfits and the camera gear. 😂

    He is going to need those energy bars by the time he arrives home.

  49. Psych Life on June 22, 2022 at 9:35 pm

    Amongst all the madness here comes Athena. Love the rucksack I have been looking for one to store essentials. And the colour is fab xx

  50. Paul raynor on June 22, 2022 at 9:35 pm

    I herd a woodpecker in our local woods when me and my wife went a walk not herd one since I was a kid atb paul
