Carry The Right Camping Gear UK

Nov 28, 2007
There are different camping equipment available for camping in different weather conditions. You should be prepared with the right camping equipment, especially in UK as the weather here is very unpredictable. If you go for a camping trip in the last few weeks of summer, you must ensure that you carry all the essential equipment to ward off the cold. The best course of action is to prepare a list of all the items you think you are going to need on your camping trip.

In order to make sure that your tent can protect you from all the vagaries of nature, you must ensure that the material it is made from is completely waterproof. Think of the repercussions if your tent cannot stand its own against heavy rain at night and you and all your supplies are left dripping wet. Also, layering your clothes is the best idea during camping trips. That way, you will be prepared if the weather is cold, especially at night. And in case you feel hot during the day, you always have the option of taking off some layers of your clothes. September in UK signifies the end of summer and so this is the time when the weather is at its most unpredictable.

So you should also carry some extra bedding, as the evening time is cool during this time. A good sleeping bag is an investment that you would thank your stars that you made when you are camping. A sleeping bag with a hood is the most ideal. Also, placing an inexpensive thing as a sleeping pad under the sleeping bag helps keep the bag warm and dry.

When you pitch your tent, it is a wise idea to make sure that it is away from the direction of the wind. This will protect you from the direct onslaught of cold winds, especially during the cold nights. An extra blanket will also prove to be a boon in such situations. In case you are still feeling cold, you can add some more layers of clothing. If the cold has made you sleepless, a nice hot drink would soothe you enough to make you settle down. A hot water bottle is also something you might appreciate at this time so make sure you pen it down on your list of camping gear. Considering the fact that the weather in the UK countryside is at times merciless, you need to be fully prepared before embarking on your camping trip.

You can find a wooly hat as well as socks at many camping store in UK. Make sure you carry these with you as when you feel warmer when your extremities are covered and warm. During the day, even in case the chill creeps in, you would be engaged in the activities of the camp to pay attention to it. So stay warm and enjoy the day.
