When Robert Baden-Powell was asked 'Be prepared for what?' he reportedly replied, 'Why, for any old thing.'
Planning and preparing is key for any successful trip into the outdoors. Whether it's a family camping trip, a Great Walk, bike packing the Old Ghost Road or just getting outdoors for a couple of days, you need to sort your gear.
The first place to start is checking your existing gear. Perhaps you didn't get around to cleaning and storing it properly. Maybe you're trying something new and need different gear. Getting the right pack and a decent sleep will make whatever adventure you're doing a much more enjoyable, and safe, experience.
We've shared some really useful info from our brands to get you started. Utilise the knowledge and experience of your local outdoor gear retailer to make sure anything you buy fits your needs.
If you've invested in quality gear, you'll want to care for it properly. And if you're prepared, you can head out as soon as the weather's right!
