Which Accessories are Safe to Wear While Out on An Adventure

If you are reading this, you’ve probably been on an adventure before and lost one of your favorite accessories. Remember the painful feeling? Adventures are fun and thrilling but in some cases, they can be physical and rough. Such situations are not ideal for certain types of accessories, especially the dangling ones.

Accessories like earrings and necklaces are not wise to wear while out on an adventure. They can be caught up by the branches and twigs and may even end up hurting you. If you want to enjoy more on your adventure, you will have to wear proper clothes and leave behind some of your accessories. There are certain types of accessories that are safe to wear while you are out on that adventure.

1. Sunglasses

Well, you must be happy to know you can still rock on your favorite sunglasses while out on that adventure. Sunglasses are safe to wear while going on hikes, bike riding or just walks. They can't possibly bring any harm to you unless there is someone who is planning to smash them on your face. Very improbable, right? Plus, it is not easy to lose them unless you take them off a lot of times. But if you do, you can always hang them on your t-shirt to keep them safe. In fact, you should always bring your sunglasses on adventures. They will shield your eyes from the sun at the same time make you look cool.

2. Wedding bands

Even though we’ve said that it is not advisable to bring jewelry to adventures, there is a certain piece of jewelry that you cannot really afford to leave behind. Wedding rings are of sentimental value and you don't really have to take them off because of an adventure. Besides, they are perfectly safe on the finger and it may take a bit of force to take out. If yours is the slipping type, consider getting a pair of gloves just to make sure it stays in place. Plus, the gloves will also help protect your hands and keep them warm in case it gets cold during your adventure.

3. Watch

You cannot really go an adventure without a watch, can you? Many people will argue that you can always check the time with your phone but is not wise to have your phone out every time during an adventure. Furthermore, a watch is perfectly safe on the wrist and if yours can double up with GPS it will make the adventure more exciting.

4. Hats

If you look at the pictures of people on adventures, you will realize that most of them have hats on. For a long time hats have been part and parcel of adventure gear and you should not shy from bringing yours. Besides, they are always safe on the head and even shield you from the sun.

adventures are fun and if you want to enjoy even more you have to bring appropriate accessories with you. They are not for fashion and you really need to check what to wear. Here is one rule to stick by, if you do not need it, do not bring it. Plus, you do have not to risk all of your expensive accessories on a few hours of adventure. Be smart and look cool with the above four accessories.

An impact at such speed, even within the protection of modern cars, is invariably catastrophic and likely fatal. Hanging from his parachute like a puppet attached to strings, Giraud has no such protection. He stops moving the instant his body makes contact with the rock, and free fall is interrupted

Alex Honnold Got His Lead Card Pulled Back in the Day

It shouldn't come as a surprise that Alex Honnold has never been one to follow the rules. Honnold rolls to the beat of his own drum, and he’s been doing it since long before he was a climbing superstar. His original climbing gym, Pipeworks in Sacramento, just shared this gem from the past. Apparently Honnold was caught skipping clips on the gym’s main roof. Nicky, a staff member from Pipeworks, wasn’t amused and pulled his lead card. Thankfully, the experience didn’t deter Honnold from
