Expedition kits are only available for hire by Hampshire Duke of Edinburgh's Award (DofE) Leaders for the use of their groups and participants.
You should place your equipment orders at least two weeks in advance. If you require equipment during half terms or summer holidays, book as early as possible to avoid disappointment.

Kit returns and replacements
Equipment should be returned clean, dry and in good working order. The storekeeper will check in the kit and inform you of any problems or missing items. Borrowers are responsible for the full replacement value of equipment if it is lost or damaged, unless it is damage caused by normal wear and tear or reasonable circumstances (not including carelessness).
If you are late to return any hired items, your rental fee will be extended up to a month. If you still have not returned the items after a month, you will be invoiced for the replacement costs.
