Product recommendations for Kilimanjaro climbers

Equipment Recommendations for Kilimanjaro Climbers

This area of the site is to help climbers with equipment recommendations. Trekkers or skiers without experience of high altitude can sometimes under-estimate the quality of equipment needed to be comfortable above 4,000 metres.

Each product page is linked to an Amazon listing on either for US-based trekkers, or for Brits - to make things as easy as possible.

If you have recently climbed Kilimanjaro and had purchased any gear for your climb on Amazon that you were particularly happy with, do please email us at or WhatsApp us and let us have a link to the listing you used, so we can better help future climbers πŸ‘ 

Sleeping bags are the most commonly hired out items of equipment that Team Kilimanjaro supplies to climbers, because for many climbers there is no need to have a sleeping bag capable of keeping you warm at minus 10 degrees Centigrade, except for two or three nights you spend at very high altitude on your Kilimanjaro climb; and having bulky luggage when travelling by plane is sometimes awkward.
