Like so many others, my wife and I went to Zion Adventure Company to equip ourselves for hiking "The Narrows". For $35 each they outfitted us with everything we needed (water pants, shoes & socks and also a sturdy hiking stick). I wouldn't recommend skipping any of these items or using items of lesser quality. Once in “The Narrows” we saw quite a few hikers who were unable to enjoy or complete their hikes because they were ill-equipped.
We also appreciated all the friendly assistance provided by the staff @ Zion Adventure Company. They showed us a slide presentation which told us what to expect and answered all our questions with patience & enthusiasm even though they'd heard them all a thousand times before. Be sure to reserve your equipment with them several days in advance of your hike, they do run out of it.
Hiking “The Narrows” was truly the experience of a lifetime. We’re so glad we did it and did it right.
