Duke of Edinburgh's Award

Vango are proud to be an official Recommended Kit Supplier for The Duke of Edinburgh's Award

For 60 years the Duke of Edinburgh's Award has been inspiring, guiding and supporting young people in their self-development, recognising their potential and awarding their achievements. Completing an expedition is integral to achieving each level of the Award and for many participants one of the first challenges is finding the right kit.

To make this easier Vango work closely with the DofE to develop tents, sleeping bags, rucksacks and sleeping mats that meet and exceed the high standards set by the DofE.

Not only do we work closely with the organisation when developing our recommended kit, we also work with the Leaders in the field. This ensures that the kit meets the needs and expectations of groups and Leaders before it is tested extensively by expedition teams, ensuring that our DofE Recommended Kit is performance led, easy to use and suitable for the variable conditions encountered by DofE participants and leaders.
