It’s camping season, and that means plenty of new hiking trails and camping spots to explore. The GCC region is filled with views of picturesque mountains, mesmerizing sand dunes and stunning wadis to discover. With the chill of winter comes its own seasonal challenges, which is why it’s important to suit up with the right gear that can not only withstand the cold temperatures but also endure the obstacles thrown up by the rugged terrain. Clothing needs to be layered for thermal protection, hiking boots need to have a solid tread to take on the wilderness and you’ll need a bag that can take a beating and still hold all your camping gear intact.
Here are our picks for a dependable outdoors kit.
Gear up for the wild with The North Face Base Camp Duffel Bag.
