The DofE kit list

This is a participant’s most important expedition document.

The DofE kit list sets out everything a participant needs for their expedition in a helpful ‘got it/packed it’ checklist.

They should use it to be sure they haven’t forgotten anything. It also tells you what kit the DofE recommends to help you when shopping for items.

Hand it down…

If you have a large family buy kit in neutral colours so that younger siblings can use it too when they are old enough. A rucksack with an adjustable back system will also help with this.

Saving money: What’s in your wardrobe?

The best way to save money on expedition kit is to use what you already have or borrow kit from other people.

Most people will have some of the clothes they need, a torch, plastic plate and so on and it’s amazing what kit people have if you ask around. Some kit, like boots and socks, you can’t borrow and there can be disadvantages to borrowing other items like rucksacks too. Always check the kit’s suitability (especially if borrowed) with your Expedition Supervisor.
