Expedition kit hire

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.
