Expedition Gear & Equipment

Life is always an expedition but some people are more adventurous than others! There is nothing more life-affirming than exploring the natural world but you need the best equipment if you really want to push the boundaries.

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do." Mark Twain

At Complete Outdoors, our comprehensive range features everything you need to tackle your next challenge. You can travel in greater safety and comfort as you explore exciting new destinations throughout the UK and across the world.

Lightweight Tents

“He who would travel happily must travel light.” Antoine de St. Exupery

Light, robust and yet quick and easy to pitch, our outstanding tents from Vango and MSR are the perfect choice for your backpacking expeditions. We offer styles which will accommodate up to 4 adventurers and so there will be a model in our range to suit your needs. Our waterproof and breathable tents are packed with practical features including storage pockets, flysheets and reflective pegging points. The outstanding lightweight tents maximise your mobility and freedom when you are on the move but provide impressive protection and comfort when it is time to rest.

Cooking

“If you reject the food, ignore the customs, fear the religion and avoid the people, you might better stay at home.” James Michener

An army marches on its stomach and so do explorers! You will need to refuel after an active day and our stoves, cook sets and pans will enable you to whip up a satisfying meal when you need one. Light, robust and reliable, our cooking essentials have been chosen from the impressive MSR, Vango Jet Boil and Trangia collections.

Sleeping

“Camp out among the grass and gentians of glacier meadows, in craggy garden nooks full of nature’s darlings.” John Muir

Keeping you comfortable at night, even in sub-zero temperatures, our 3 and 4 season sleeping bags are suitable for trekkers, cyclists and alpinists. Supremely lightweight and portable, the sleeping bags from Vango and Criterion are excellent investments and you can keep your chosen style clean whilst enhancing insulation with the impressive sleeping bag liners from Cocoon.

Our expedition sleeping range also features foam mats and self-inflating mats from Therm-A-Rest which provide exceptional thermal insulation and comfort. A great night’s sleep is guaranteed wherever you happen to be!

Lighting and Travel Accessories

"I am not the same, having seen the moon shine on the other side of the world." Mary Anne Radmacher

But there may be occasions when the moonlight does not provide sufficient illumination! Our excellent lighting collection of torches, lanterns and head torches certainly will! Chosen from the outstanding Black Diamond, Coast and Petzl ranges, these lightweight and reliable models are the perfect addition to your gear.

We are also delighted to bring you an extensive collection of fine travel accessories. These include travel towels, mosquito nets and repellents, water purifiers and first aid kits from Life Systems, Lifeventure and Nalgene.

Properly equipped, you can embark on your next expedition in confidence. There is much to discover and explore throughout the UK and farther afield. With Complete Outdoors you will always be able to take the path less travelled!

"Life is either a daring adventure or nothing." Helen Keller
