Honduras Expedition

Hi everyone,

I'm off to Honduras on a Biology/conservation expedition with Operation Wallacea in a few months. I'm starting to buy my equipment and need a few items, I was wondering if any of you have been to similar locations and can reccomend products...

Here's what I need:

Trousers (light, full length- maybe zips)

Head Torch- saw the £13 on Patrol store- any good for night time activities?

Various other bits of equipment to make my expedition a but more confortable e.g. DEET, medical kits etc.

Obviously i'd prefer cheaper stuff, but quality is the most important factor, I think.

Thanks,

Shikari

Hi Shikari,

Here's an idea for trousers, they are £30 but the quality is good, I can also vouch for the website:

http://www.trekwear.co.uk/s/craghoppers-mens-kiwi-zip-off-trousers/3465/Product.aspx

Or the ones below are their "Nosi-Life" brand which is supposed to ward off insects but I haven't tried them.

http://www.trekwear.co.uk/s/craghoppers-mens-nosi-convertibles/3707/Product.aspx

Have a browse round that website as well if they don't have your size / colour, or you could get direct from Craghoppers.

I'll have a think for other things!

Thanks for the links,

Would you advise a desert scarf? (We're also spending a week on a beach/island, doing reef conservation (1 week in Cusocu national park, 1 week on Cayos Cochinos))

Thanks again,

No idea I'm afraid. I was in Bolivia which is sort of split half way and I was in the high-up Andes bit rather than the tropical jungle bit. Someone else might know though.
