    I don't sweat this at all, my day hikes have been local so far, training for longer hikes.
    I carry water, snacks, and headlamp/flashlight always now! caught in the dark many times.
    I use treking poles.
    I will be in these hills for hours, with what the locals refer to as my "getup". I'm not out to make a fashion statement!
    I have carried a full large pack on a day hike for training purposes, let them laugh damn, I'm pretty kickass for an old man.
    These day hikes done on a regular basis are great for conditioning, endurance, recovery.
    Just another old "decaying post" ? Not me.

    Like your green hat, in Norway we use green hats when hiking to show we are single. Red means you are taken, and yellow/ orange is used when you are not sure or open for people to approach you.

    Really like the bit about the film canister for storing (latex/nitrile) gloves. Brilliant tip!

    Amazing scenery, indeed. There is really endless choice for hiking in front of us all but no one can afford enough. Nice video with surely useful advice for most.

    Really good start, but also, water filter, fire, knife, emergency shelter (mylar bivy will do and is very light) and an extra day of emergency food.

    This video is superb, you really nailed it. The only thing that needs mentioning is, what's the best thing to do with that toilet paper after you use it. Leave No Trace practice would be to pack it out, so bring another ziplock. If it's just a day hike, I guess you can avoid bringing a small trowel if you relieve yourself before starting the hike.

    I see other people have been suggesting some great things to consider bringing in case of an emergency such as a multi-tool and duct tape, and also personal preference items such as a hat. So I guess I'd say, a small emergency mirror or reflective surface in your emergency/medical kit would certainly help a spotter in a plane pinpoint your location. They make small tough emergency mirrors that are the size of your palm.

    You most probably have them, but I would suggest a: whistle & a couple of 'Setopress' (brand) bandages for snakebite. (Setopress – use the brown rectangles to squares for the correct compression for snakebite)

    Nice day hike kit. The only thing extra I might add is a ferro rod, a Bic lighter or some waterproof matches. If for some reason you have to overnight in the bush having a fire would be potentially life saving. I also carry an emergency reflective blanket that can be either a shelter or body wrap. Taking the surgical gloves is very smart. I pack on the philosophy, one is none and two is one, so I pack two pair of surgical gloves. I love your country and was fortunate to visit the Gold Coast while hoteling in Coolangatta. I would love to return one day and really visit more of your beautiful country.

    I cannot tell you how many times we’ve needed a knife and nobody had a Good One. Somebody needed some strong large safety pins and nobody had them either, some small diameter rope was needed nothing, no one had a mirror, I needed a handkerchief nobody had an extra! Somebody got wet and they were really cold and we really needed an emergency blanket and nobody had one she ended up getting hypothermia and being shipped out to the hospital, unfortunately! And it could’ve been prevented if we had an emergency blanket!
