Got a late summer hiking trip planned? Good idea! Just make sure you don't leave the house unprepared — a common mistake among casual trekkers. You may think all you need is a great pair of shoes or weather-resistant cap. However, even the most novice of explorers needs to stock up on certain must-haves — to carry, to wear...even, worst-case, to ensure your survival. So, in the interest of smartness and safety: Don't leave the house without the following 10 essentials.

WATERFLY Crossbody Sling Backpack Waterfly $23 $34 at Amazon This carryall features a front zipper back, mesh pouches for a water bottle and other smaller compartments inside to hold essentials big and small. The shoulder strap and the back panel are made of breathable material, too.

"My wife loves this bag and has become her go-to. It's super cute, active style but versatile. It's a perfect size and the over-the-shoulder strap is super comfortable," wrote one of the 17,000 five-star reviews. Snag one for just $23 with the on-page coupon.

The Atomic Bear Paracord Bracelet Atomic Bear $11 $23 at Amazon This bracelet performs five functions: fire starter, compass, loud emergency whistle, ferro rod striker and 12 feet of military-grade paracord. It comes in a pack of two, one for you and one for your hiking buddy.

"The bracelet is light and easy to use. The whistle is loud and the compass accurate. Plenty of cord to help out of an emergency situation. Worth the money," reports a reviewer.

LifeStraw Personal Water Filter for Hiking and Camping LifeStraw $16 at Amazon The straw contains a microfiltration membrane that removes 99.999999 percent of waterborne bacteria (including E. coli and salmonella), and 99.999 percent of waterborne parasites (including giardia and cryptosporidium).

Wrote a five-star reviewer: "We took the LifeStraw on a hiking trip in Montana. While we carried water bottles, we went through those fairly quickly, [but] were then able to continue having fresh water to drink and made the backpack much lighter."

Protect Life 100 Piece First Aid Kit Protect Life $15 $25 at Amazon This small but mighty pack includes an emergency blanket, bandages, eye wash, gauze, safety blanket, prep pads, medical scissors and more. It's all tucked inside a bright red pouch.

"Great to bring along on day trips, hikes and mini getaways. Small enough so that it doesn't take up too much space, but has all the necessary essential items. Would definitely recommend!" a satisfied customer wrote.

GearLight 2-Pack LED Head Lamp GearLight $20 at Amazon This is a No. 1 bestseller for a reason. These head lamps have a runtime that can exceed 10 hours (on the low setting) and they weigh only three ounces. They're also water-resistant, so you can even use them during a downpour.

An Amazon shopper wrote: "Bought this for my husband, and he uses it all the time. He loves it. It comes in handy when he’s working underneath cars or on dirt bikes since it's hands-free. Highly recommend this so he doesn’t have to hold a flashlight with his mouth or try to prop one up. And it’s a two-pack, so one at home and one at work. He’s had it for a couple of months now and it’s still working well...the brightness on the head lamp is significant. It’s a very good product."

"Love these pants. The small fits me (5', 120 lbs). I already have a blue/green pair and now I have the purple one as well. They are very lightweight but survived a tough hike where I fell and slid. All the dirt came out and they look fine," said a fan who owns two pairs.

BLAVOR Portable Solar Power Bank Charger Blavor $26 $45 at Amazon This functions as both a wireless power bank and wireless charger. It also comes loaded with dual flashlights and an emergency light. Make sure to properly read the instructions to make sure the solar panels accurately charge.

"This power bank is amazing! For a weekend cub scouts camping trip (Friday night to Sunday afternoon) it helped keep my phone and my kiddos tablets charged but the kicker is the solar option!! No need to worry about sitting in the car missing the fun we could charge and hike no problem, even in the rain!" exclaimed a reviewer. Just $26 with an on-page coupon.

Cliganic 10 Pack Mosquito Repellent Bracelets Cliganic $10 $13 at Amazon Say goodbye to bites with these bracelets. They're made with essential oils found to repel mosquitoes, and they're fully adjustable, stretchy and easily fit over most arms. Plus, they are waterproof.

"These are the be-all, end-all mosquito repellant. They also repel flies/other bugs. We use them for going to the dog park, hiking, going to the lake, or any other activity where we’ll be outside long enough to get chewed up. We put them back in their bags [after] using them, and they last multiple uses!" a satisfied customer reports.

UBeesize Portable and Adjustable Camera Stand Holder UBeesize $18 at Amazon Document the best parts of your adventures with this tool. It's stable on any surface and works with smartphones, digital cameras, GoPros and webcams up to 3.7 inches wide. The wireless remote has a range of up to 30 feet.

This delighted shutterbug penned: "As a mom, this helps me be IN pictures with my kids as well as some background. No more selfies and not having any idea where we are pictures. I wrap mine on our stroller handle and position the stroller as needed. It was worth every penny."

Nuun Nuun Sport: Electrolyte Drink Tablets Nuun $28 $30 at Amazon Mix these tablets with water for a hydrating beverage during your travels. They have no artificial flavorings or sweeteners and are keto-friendly.

If you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)
