Ed Stafford Shelter Kit


"This kit is so much more than a toy set - it's the quality you’d need to spend multiple weeks in the jungle and not get wet. Time outdoors enriches lives. My childhood was spent roaming fields, building dens and dams and as a result I feel a practical connection to nature that has never left me. If screens cause anxiety - nature is the antidote. An afternoon in the woods building a den with mates or the family is the perfect way to re-set your child and bring them back to their purest and happiest selves."  – Ed Stafford.

Developed In collaboration with Ed Stafford, The Shelter Kit is the highest spec we offer containing equipment for real outdoor adventure. 

Aimed specifically at young people*, this kit doesn’t patronise. Guided by Ed Stafford’s words of wisdom and inspiration The Shelter Kit contains our highest quality 3m x 3m basha, the Ed Stafford signature embroidered cap, a high quality duffle bag and all the other kit your budding explorer needs for their garden adventures.

*(10 years old and above)

‘Bought this for 8 year old son. By far his favourite gift - he takes it out whenever he can & is learning to improve his shelter with better knots, different techniques etc. He’s melted the paracord ends too. It’s big enough to fit his sisters under and gives them motivation to get outdoors. Computer games abandoned = happy parents too.’ Matt

'I'm a big Ed Stafford fan and I bought this for my two kids (age 5 and 12) and they both love it, as well as me! There is no age limit on having fun and interacting with the outdoors. The perfect gift for kids to enjoy in the garden during lockdown or with friends when bigger groups are allowed to interact again. The product quality is fantastic and is obviously built to last through any weather conditions.’  Will
