Essential outdoor clothing and equipment

Always carry a compact, lightweight headlamp, even if you do not think you will need one. Quite often outdoor enthusiasts can be caught out in the dark unexpectedly if a walking, cycling or kayaking trip takes longer than expected.

Headlamps come in all shapes and sizes, and are suitable for many different activities — from camping to caving.

  • Using a headlamp means that both hands will be left free to carry out tasks, rather than one hand having to hold a torch. So, wearing a headlamp is even useful when you’re cooking at night!
  • If you are carrying a headlamp then you will be able to see and navigate in the dark but without one you’ll be left in the dark!
  • Make sure you select a weatherproof and robust design for outdoor use.
