kit list
The items listed below are purely recommendations. The list has been designed by the local ground handler and past challenge leaders; however, please take into account your personal preferences and common sense. We are open to further recommendations upon your return. See what you can borrow, and if you need to purchase any items, remember that you can get a discount on equipment and clothing from various well known suppliers and outdoor shops – for more information, please refer to the document “Kit Discount” which you will find in your member’s area in the “Challenge Pack” section once you have booked and paid your deposit. If you would prefer to hire kit, please contact Outdoor Hire, a company specialising in the hire of top quality outdoor gear. They are working with Charity Challenge to provide all the kit you need for your challenge and offer a 10% discount to Charity Challenge customers who have booked onto one of our challenges. Simply obtain the promotional code by referring to the document “Kit Discount” which you will find in your member’s area, and then go to select the kit list for the challenge you have booked and follow the online instructions for how to hire the kit you need. Try to use your equipment before you go – particularly your rucksack, cycling kit, boots and sleeping bag (if camping) – as this will show up any manufacturing faults. Good footwear and care of the feet is especially important. Well broken-in walking boots should be worn on treks. Trainers are too flimsy for wilderness treks and trainer boots are not appropriate. Sandals leave the feet exposed to sunburn, abrasions, thorns, insect and animal bites. Bring as little as possible but bring everything you need. Travelling light is much less of a hassle, so do not bring things you can do without. If you need to wear jewellery, keep it simple and inexpensive. The general rule is that if you don’t need it, don’t bring it. Always keep your night clothes in a watertight bag to ensure they stay dry if there is a sudden downpour or if you are crossing water – you wil have a much better night’s sleep in dry clothing. Bring clothes that wash and dry easily (jeans take forever to dry and should not be worn on the trek). It is a good idea to wear your walking boots on the plane, in case your main bag gets lost. Please check the luggage allowance with the airline that you are flying with and ensure that you do not exceed their regulations. Your main bag on the trek should not weigh more than 15kg if being carried by porters or guides. In line with our responsible tourism policy, it is important not to overload the porters and transfer agents who have to carry and transport your pack. Your hand luggage should not exceed 5kg and maximum dimensions of 56x45x25cms. Please make sure you pack your rucksack/kit bag yourself, and do NOT under any circumstances take any items through customs that are not yours or that you have been asked to deliver for someone else. If possible, lock your bags before you check them through at the check-in desk. When packing, think carefully about what you are packing in your hold luggage as, once you have handed it over at check-in, you will not see it again until you arrive at the other end. Don’t pack anything you will need again before or during the flight, such as medicine. Keep extra cash, passports and house keys in your hand luggage. Also, if taking a long flight, it is sometimes a good idea to take toiletries such as a toothbrush to freshen up on the long journey but please do remember that there are strict regulations governing the transport of liquids in hand luggage. For the most up-to-date air travel hand luggage rules, please consult the guidelines at Do not pack valuables, cash, fragile or perishable items in your hold luggage. Airlines and insurance companies will not accept liability for them. When leaving the UK, we recommend that you wear your trekking boots, trekking gear, and take as much as possible in your hand luggage, especially a full day’s underwear and other clothing. This is to ensure that in the unlikely situation that your bags do not arrive at your final destination, you are still able to make a start on the challenge while we relocate any missing baggage. baggage and sleeping
