Nature connection on Exmoor

Kit List 

This equipment list is merely our recommendation for the type of kit you should bring with you. 

 

Clothing

Layering your clothing is the key to a comfortable stay.  Muted colours are most suitable for blending in with the environment and getting closer to wildlife.  The following suggestions are dependent on time of year and how you react to differing weather conditions.

Base layer – thermal t-shirt (eg Merino wool), longjohns, woollen socks.  Cotton is fine during the summer months but can chill you quickly when wet so is not the best material in winter.

Mid layer – a long sleeved shirt (we like the Norwegian army shirt which is also fleece lined), fleece/woollen jumper, cargo/combat trousers (no jeans, please)

Outer layer – windproof shell, waterproof shell

Feet – sturdy boots, possibly old trainers for around camp

Bring a spare set of clothes in a plastic bag to keep them dry.
