Duke of Edinburgh Gear List

text If someone in your family is doing the DofE this year, here's my recommendation.

I would really like to recommend our £170 stoves and amazingly light rucksacks but with DofE price comes before weight just in case the gear is never used again.

So the equipment below is based on the research I did for my daughter, she's doing it this year. It's a balance between cost and not wanting their pack to be too heavy.

If you want to go cheap then Go Outdoors is the place to go. They have the following equipment and clothing bundles for the DofE

Go Outdoors Bundle 1
Go Outdoors Bundle 2
Maybe I'm being thick but I had a bit of trouble finding these bundles, I clicked on the DofE page (makes sense), here's the link


I then scrolled down a little and clicked on 'Download our Catalogue'

More scrolling until you get to the pictures shown above, then you can add the bundle to basket. This take you back to the Go Outdoors website where you can click 'Add Bundle to Basket' and choose your sizes. Little bit of a faff but look at the prices.
