The following items can be loaned to winners of The Next Challenge Grant as part of their award.
All of the equipment belongs to me (apart from the Kibo Expedition bikes which belong to their maker, Simon Stanforth). Much of it has been sent to me to review or as sponsorship for particular expeditions. I have more equipment than I need though so am happy to lend it out
If you’d like to borrow any equipment then please just reference it in your application. You can either ask for something general (e.g. a stove) or specify the exact model (e.g. Primus Lite+ stove).
The arrangement is that I’ll send it to you before your trip and you return it when you’re done. I pay postage to you, you pay postage back.
