Kit List for Walking Great Britain

I’ve learnt from previous adventures that while you don’t need to buy expensive bits of kit (particularly if you have awesome friends who can lend you bits), it is a good idea to have the lightest you can afford and to not over pack.

Plus, you want a few items that will put a smile on your face when you’re being lashed with rain for days on end!

Here’s a run down of the kit I’m taking on my little stroll down the country.

Plus of course, copious amounts of snacks and coffee. And today I’ll be heading out to find a book in a charity shop that I can give away en route when I’ve finished it.

Any thing I’ve missed, please do drop a note in the comments below.

I’ve chosen all my kit based on what I can borrow from friends and the products I love using.

I’ve been really lucky that some of the brands I love love me back and so Ordnance Survey, Odylique, ZeroSixZero and Going Solo are my wonderful partners for this trip.

Love this? Please hit the little heart so other people can find it too!
