We are going over various types of hikers that we meet along the trail when out enjoying nature and today we are featuring the Hipster Hiker.
The Hipster Hiker is someone who enjoys nature but also enjoys fashion. Sometimes we can be confused when encountering a hipster hiker as we may think things like “am I not dressed appropriately for this occasion?” or “I wonder if this person has ever hiked before”. Rest assured a lot of hipster hikers are no rookies on the trail and are often very diligent, determined hikers who often know of secret waterfalls or really cool overlooks. Maybe this is driven by the insatiable craving of taking the best selfie or maybe this is just a person who likes to be on the “in” with putting their best foot forward in nature.
A hipster hiker will often travel light weight so you may find them with the Tarpestry mini or as mentioned earlier may be more into fashion than other hikers so may opt for an Artist Edition Tarpestry instead. Either way the hipster hiker will definitely have very clean leather boots with tight jeans rolled slightly higher than the sock line, a plaid shirt either buttoned two buttons down with a white shirt underneath or simply tied around the waist. Hair will be impeccable and only the strongest wind at the top of the mountain peak could blow it from its state of perfection. Don’t let appearances fool you though, the hipster hiker is normally a very tough individual with lots of class and style who will easily get more likes on their social media account than you ever could dream of, while being one of the nicest individuals on the trail. They will happily snap your photo if you kindly ask them to!
