Yugen Explore First Aid Kit

It’s essential to have a first aid kit. This compact hard shell design means it’s water resistant and won’t get damaged in the bottom of your bag. It’s also spacious so you can add in any personal extras like tablets or creams. We’ve added an attachment loop at the top so you can clip it to your bag if you’re short on space.

See "Description" section below for contents of this kit.

Yugen Explore Head Torch

A small packable head torch. Much easier than using a hand torch.

It has a water resistant rating of IPX5 which means you don’t need to worry if you get caught out in the rain. The head lamp itself tilts so you can easily angle it and adjust it to point where you need, whether that’s straight in front or down on the ground when you’re walking. The head strap is adjustable so one size fits all and it’s detachable so can easily be washed. The push button function is simple and easy to use when on the go and there are 4 settings so you’ll definitely find one that you need.

See "Description" section below for full specification.

Yugen Explore - Water Bottle × 2

One litre BPA-free water bottle.

BPA is a chemical used to make certain plastics and research has shown it can have negative side-effects on our health. 

The wide opening means its easy to clean and the plastic loop means you can carabiner it to your bag for easy access. We also encourage you to recycle your bottle rather than using throw-away ones - much better for the environment.
