It is a truth universally acknowledged that you can’t summit mount Mt Kilimanjaro without the right footwear, and that you would have a very unpleasant time of it if you tried to cross the Sahara desert in jeans and a t-shirt. In these extraordinary climates of mountain winds, desert heat, jungle humidity and icecap colds, you need clothing and equipment that is a little bit extraordinary itself.
Here at Charity Challenge, we work with outdoor experts Cotswold Outdoors to create the most up-to-date and relevant kit lists and provide you with expert advice on what kit you need and how to use it.
Take a look at these two videos from Cotswolds Outdoors to see how you should be adjusting and fitting your boots and rucksacks before you set out on your challenge!
