When you join (or express an interest in!) an expedition with Secret Compass, you will be sent a full kit list in the expedition’s online Handbook. As a taster of the type of kit we often recommend, here’s a Kit Advice video for jungle, savannah and desert environments featuring Tom Bodkin, co-founder of Secret Compass. Watch the full Kit Advice series on YouTube for guidance in choosing rucksacks, sleeping bags, boots and more, or head over to our Journal where you will find gear reviews, buying guides and expert advice.
