Do I need everything on the kit list?

Yes - you should always pack everything listed in the 'What do I need to bring?' section of the Kit List.

The Kit Lists on each adventure page are written by our local hosts who know how variable the weather can be in their destinations. Although in some cases the kit list may seem excessive, these have been purposefully designed to ensure you are prepared for all eventualities and able to successfully complete your adventure - so we always recommend following the kit list exactly. 

You can also view if any kit can be hired from your local host in the Kit List section

  • If you have any questions about the Kit List for the adventure you have booked, you can contact your host through your booking page and they will be able to help. 
  • If you have any questions about the Kit List before booking an adventure, please get in touch with our friendly customer experience team who will gladly answer anything on your mind. 

If you need to purchase any new kit ahead of your adventure, all bookings receive a 15% discount on us to use at Cotswold Outdoor, Snow + Rock and Runner's Need. You can find your unique code in your booking confirmation email.

We also recommend hiring kit if this is feasible instead of purchasing items that you may not use extensively again. Our hosts often have items to hire, but there are also options online where the kit will be posted to your home address and when you return home you just post it back. Easy!
