Wanted: Cheap Caving Kit
« on: January 30, 2019, 05:59:58 pm »
Hi All - just wondering where is best to get new cheap kit like oversuits / haul bags etc, online or in the Mendips/Oxford area?

Coming back to caving and looking to get some new gear!

Alternatively does anyone have anything they'd be willing to part with cheaply?

Cheers,

B.

To be honest, new kit will be a pretty similar price wherever you go. Caveclimb.com is in Cheddar, so probably your best bet. Make sure to call ahead as Andy opens to order. Otherwise Starless River is a mobile caving shop that visits the Mendips fairly frequently (possibly this weekend?).

While oversuit seem pretty expensive, they last a while, so pretty cheap over time  :)

Alternatively, if you want to save a few quid and aren't in a hurry, keep your eye out for second hand kit on ebay, it comes up from time to time...
