Equipment & Gear

Having the right gear on your trip is important. In most cases, if you don't have it, you can likely borrow it—free! Davidson Outdoors doesn't want you to buy specialized gear you might only use once. We have worked hard to provide as much of the equipment and gear as possible. If you don't already have it, Davidson Outdoors can likely provide it, or visit your local thrift shops.

Please indicate the gear you need on the online Personal Information and Gear Request Form.

There is a limit to our gear inventory. If you'd like to use gear from Davidson Outdoors it is vital you notify us early to reserve items you need.

What Not To Bring

  • Alcohol and non-prescription drugs are prohibited.
  • Expensive jewelry and other valuables could be an unnecessary risk for loss.
  • Cell phones, iPods and MP3 players should not go on the actual Odyssey as they can interfere with the group experience. These can be left at Davidson during your trip.

Where to Buy or Borrow Gear

We suggest you borrow gear rather than purchase it, unless you anticipate using it frequently after the Odyssey. There is no charge for gear provided by Davidson Outdoors. You may also be able to borrow from friends and family any items you do not personally own. If you do need to purchase gear, the following discount sources provide good quality equipment at reasonable prices. Visit their web site to find items that you need. Then visit your local outdoor shops to try on the same clothing and equipment to determine the appropriate size and compare prices before ordering.
