Staycation Gear Guide
Wondering about essential staycation gear? Lock-down restrictions are lifting in the UK, and many of us are ready to plan a trip closer to home this year. This is leading us to the rise of the staycation – a trip that will allow you to get away, and explore everything you may have missed on your doorstep. Enter, our staycation gear guide.
Staycations could be here for the long-haul, giving us a greener way to holiday. Avoiding air travel in favour of traveling by road can help to reduce our carbon footprint.
We’re ready to fall in love with our home turf again and have rounded up our gear edits for all types of local vacations. Make sure you’re prepared for anything your adventures have to throw at you!

Maximum gear taking up minimum space? Perfect. Come prepared without overcrowding your vehicle – especially great if you’re planning on camping.
