Anyone done one? May have wangled myself onto one soon and wondered what specialist kit i will require that i may need to look into puchasing. Thought of thermal baselayers and boots, presume harness etc will obviously be provided. Any advice much appreciated!
Mate of mine went on one a few years back and most of the specialist kit was provided - best advice would be to give them a bell. They are pretty good at telling you what to bring.
However, I see it as a perfect opportunity to splash out on some decent new gear - base layers are always useful, and if you don't have one a good duvet jacket (I got one last year) is great.
Take the time to shop around - with the current economic problems there are lots of sales on and I have picked up some right bargains of late.
