For people interested in what the expedition kit list looks like there here it is, warts and all, and our current status in assembling it as of 1200 today. I had wanted to include a full listing of weights etc for real kit nerds but will do so once everything is finally assembled. Each gram counts enormously…. and every brand has been targetted because they provide the very best-of-breed gear in their field, and we thank them hugely for being involved.

Woops! An eagle eye will notice there are still a couple of key gaps – or areas where we have yet to receive funding with less than two months to go!! If you are somebody who can work with us to finance these requirements or you too provide sturdy, durable, portable kit then please, please do get in touch- we need YOU and we will WORK TIRELESSLY to make you value our partnership….
