Helmet
A HELMET is a form of protective gear worn to protect the head from injuries. More specifically, a helmet aids the skull in protecting the human brain . Ceremonial or symbolic helmets (e.g. UK policeman\'s helmet ) without protective function are sometimes used. The oldest known use of helmets was by Assyrian soldiers in 900 BC, who wore thick leather or bronze helmets to protect the head from blunt object and sword blows and arrow strikes in combat. Soldiers still wear helmets, now often made from lightweight plastic materials . In civilian life, helmets are used for recreational activities and sports (e.g. jockeys in horse racing , American football , ice hockey , cricket , baseball , camogie , hurling and rock climbing ); dangerous work activities (e.g. construction , mining , riot police); and transportation (e.g

Crampon
A CRAMPON is a traction device that is attached to footwear to improve mobility on snow and ice during ice climbing . Not only are crampons used during ice climbing, but they are also used for secure travel on snow and ice, such as crossing glaciers , snowfields and icefields , ascending snow slopes, and scaling ice-covered rock. There are three main attachment systems for footwear: step-in, hybrid, and strap bindings. The first two require boots with welts , as a tension lever attaches the crampon to the heel. The last type (strap bindings) are more versatile and can adapt to virtually any boot or shoe, but often do not fit as precisely as the other two types. Oscar Eckenstein designed the first 10-point crampon in 1908, dramatically reducing the need for step cutting. This design was then made commercially available by the Italian Henry Grivel

Bouldering Pad
A BOULDERING MAT or CRASH PAD is a foam pad used for protection when bouldering . There are various sizes and makes, but the most common type is a folded mattress, 8–10 centimetres (3–4 in) thick, that when unfolded measures about 1 by 1.3 metres (3 by 4 ft). Most of bouldering mats often have shoulder straps so as to easily move it between boulders. Bouldering mats often come in either dual or triple density foam inners to provide differing levels of support with the bottom or middle being the softer. With the higher density foam at the top this will prevent the climber 's foot from sinking through the foam and either gaining impact on the ground or getting a foot stuck in the mat which would increase the chance of injury. Mats are often used to cover dangerous sections of the ground below a chosen climb such as protruding rocks or grass tufts. Usually the crash pad is paired with a couple of spotters in order to ensure the safety of the climber

Backpack
A BACKPACK — also called BOOKBAG, KITBAG, KNAPSACK, RUCKSACK, PACK, or SACKPACK BACKSACK — is, in its simplest form, a cloth sack carried on one's back and secured with two straps that go over the shoulders , but there can be variations to this basic design. Lightweight types of backpacks are sometimes worn on only one shoulder strap. Backpacks are commonly used by hikers and students, and are often preferred to handbags for carrying heavy loads or carrying any sort of equipment, because of the limited capacity to carry heavy weights for long periods of time in the hands . Large backpacks, used to carry loads over 10 kilograms (22 lb), as well as smaller sports backpacks (e.g. running, cycling, hiking and hydration), usually offload the largest part (up to about 90%) of their weight onto padded hip belts, leaving the shoulder straps mainly for stabilising the load

Their maximum length is usually 135 cm (54 inches), however, unlike ski poles, they are often made in two or three sections and can be extended and retracted as necessary for use and collapsed for storage or transport.

While smaller tents may be free-standing or attached to the ground, large tents are usually anchored using guy ropes tied to stakes or tent pegs . First used as portable homes by nomadic peoples, tents are now more often used for recreational camping and temporary shelters. Tents range in size from "bivouac " structures, just big enough for one person to sleep in, up to huge circus tents capable of seating thousands of people. The bulk of this article is concerned with tents used for recreational camping which have sleeping space for one to ten people. Larger tents are discussed in a separate section below.
