purchase hiking equipment in Puerto Natales

Hi guys! I'm going to Puerto Natales in August. Might probably join a day trip to Torres del Paine. I'd like to know if it is expensive to buy a pair of hiking boots and a thick jacket in Puerto Natales. Should I purchase these items in Santiago or somewhere else? Thank you for your attention.

That sort of gear is expensive in Chile no matter where you buy it. You can rent it all in Puerto Natales.

For day trip you won't really need hiking boots as you will unlikely be doing real hiking, just walking up and down some hills to take some photo shoots here and there. A sturdy walking shoes will do as it can be wet if it rains. Puerto Natales is a small town, bring whatever you need from home, or rent one.
