While hiking Utah's canyons, here are three of the essentials you should pick up for the journey.

Osprey Raptor 6 Hydration Pack

Stay hydrated and stay prepared. The Raptor 6 is built for day hikes, but the pack is roomy enough to accommodate everything but the kitchen sink.

$79, Kirkham’s, SLC, 801-486-4161

Moxie Headlamp

Just because a headlamp is the most important piece of gear for a 5 a.m. hike doesn’t mean it needs to be the most expensive.

$30, Black Diamond, SLC, 801-278-0233

Sports Beans

“Magic beans” may sound like an exaggeration, but pop a couple of these halfway through a mega ride you’ll see what we mean.

About $1 per package, Canyon Bicycles, Draper, 801-576-8844
