Top Tips

Spread the risk!

Divide your medical supplies into two dry bags in case of loss or damage to the bag.

Never be tempted to wear your dry kit out of your hammock. This is your one bit of comfort each day and nothing properly dries out in the jungle! Men: Dramatically reduce your shaving, as cuts to the face can be susceptible to infection.

Keep your bags closed when not in use, otherwise you may find some unwanted creepy crawlies making your bags, their new home.
