Some general notes:
- A waterproof jacket should ideally be a proper waterproof jacket not a ‘Pac A Mac’ type jacket.
- Sleeping bags should be rate for at least 2 seasons. The sleeping bag is VERY important – especially when camping outdoors! Warm sleeping bag = happy faces.
- Self inflating mats are a great way to keep warm and have a nice level of comfort.
