Kit List - Boot Up Adventures

KIT LIST - Wild Camping

This should act as a guide for what is recommended for those booked on to one of our wild camping adventures. (Those looking for a day walk kit list, this can be found on the acknowledgement of risk)

‘Guide’, being the important word, as you may not need every item, but some will just make your trip that little bit more comfortable.

If buying or borrowing/hiring equipment (10% discount for all Boot Up Adventures members at it’s all about striking a balance between weight and comfort. Therefore your kit should be as light weight as possible, but not to the extent that you’re compromising comfort.

We have years of experience in using this kit and have provided our recommendations to kit we have used ourselves.  In some instances we have provided a cheaper option as well as the most recommended.  This cheaper option is also recommended but might be heavier or not be quite as good, in terms of quality and features.

Please contact the office for any further help and assistance.
