Offering hiking gear from just €3.99, we check out what you can expect from the LIDL hiking range 2018 which is due to hit the shelves this week.
Lidl have really started dipping their toes into the adventure sector of late. They released their own ski gear over the winter and now for the spring/summer season ahead they have gone and released their own line of hiking gear. The goods will hit the shelves this Thursday 8 February. We all know that outdoor gear can get a tad expensive and we’re all for the big quality brands. However, if you’re skint and lack of gear is stopping you from getting out there on the many stunning hikes, trails and mountains of Ireland, then we definitely advise getting to Lidl this week and picking up the basics for bargain basement prices. From fleeces, hiking boots and jackets to head torches, flasks and heart monitors, here’s what’s in store from tomorrow onwards.
For a cheap and lightweight trekking jacket for hiking this summer, these are a great option. With a water-repelling finish, high-quality padding, they make for an ultralight and warm wear. Available in sizes 10-18 (Ladies’) and 38-48 (Men’s).
These sleek pair of hiking trousers are water and stain-repellent and are UV protected. They have a rollup feature for natural ventilation, a drawstring closure to keep dirt at bay and come in four different styles. They are available in sizes 10-18 (Ladies’) and 32-40 (Men’s).

Then there’s a women’s specific pair of hiking trousers for a few euro more. They are also water and stain-repellent and come in sizes 10-18.
For a cheap pair of hiking boots that will do the job on Ireland’s hills this summer, then check out the Crivit hiking shoes and boots. They are breathable, waterproof and wind-resistant with integrated TEX membrane. They are available in sizes 4-7 (Ladies’) and 7-11.5 (Men’s).
If the sun ever comes out again then it’s always handy to have a pair of sunglasses stuffed in your daypack on a hike. At €3.99 you can’t really go wrong, with 100% UV protection and reflection free.
Never underestimate how important having a decent pair of socks under your hiking boots are. Although we usually recommend going for merino wool, we’re definitely willing to try out this pair for €3.49. Available in sizes 4-8 (Ladies’) and 7-11.5 (Men’s).

One of the best parts of hiking is been able to take a seat on the summit and enjoy a cup of tea. This 1L insulated flask keeps beverages warm for up to 12 hours or cold for up to 24 hours. It includes two cups screwed together as a lid closure and has a double-walled stainless steel body.
For your drink, Lidl are selling an Ernesto 750ml bottle made from high-quality stainless steel that is leak-proof (screw cap with silicone seal). As bottles go it’s pretty stylish and is available in three colours.
For all this new gear of yours you’ll need a new rucksack. This Crevit 30L one has padded back and hip for optimal load distribution, a spacious main compartment with drinking tube opening, a rain cover in a separate bottom pocket and a chest and waist strap and trekking pole holder.
At €8.99 this trekking light is pretty much a must buy for all nighttime outdoor pursuits. It has a COB-LED with high light output and two light modes. It hangs, stands or can be fixed in place with an integrated magnet. It will stay lighting for six hours.
We’re a big fan of hiking poles. And this pair will do the job nicely! They have a 3x telescopic function (variable height: 100-135cm) and are extremely light and robust. They have an ergonomic dual-component handle with cork section and vents for optimal air circulation and an EVA grip.
Nothing quite like a little radio to keep you company on your hike or your lunch break from hiking.

If you’re taking your hiking serious then it might be worth investing in a heart rate monitor. The Crivit Pro measures the current, average and maximum heart rate, has a BMI calculator and display of calorie consumption and fat burn. It includes a chest strap, bike bracket and batteries.

I have some Crivit walking poles which I use for hiking and for walking around town. I use them so much that the rubber ferules are wearing down rapidly. Is it possible to buy spare ferules? And I’m terrified of losing the clip which holds the poles together for storage.
Do you sell either of these accessories separately? If so, where can I buy them?
Can you buy walking sticks anywhere at the moment in any Lidl stores
Is there any way of buying some of your hiking products as I missed out when in store
