    As I only really had a few goes at wild camping towards the end of summer / autumn last year and was hiking between in campsites the rest of the time, I'd say a lot of my kit is more geared to campsite camping. This is what I took with me...

    ... I hope you are sitting comfortably, it is a rather long list

    Rucksac: Gelert Core 85 + 10
    Main compartment:
    Trangia 27 UL (with a fire steel, windproof matches and lighter inside the kettle)
    Gelert Solo tent
    Gelert ultralite self inflating mat (with a Poundland inflatable pillow and Mountain Warehouse sit mat rolled inside)
    Halfords fleece blanket
    Mountain Warehouse Swedish mess kit copy (with tea bags, coffee, powdered milk, sweeteners, 2 x plastic spork, folding metal spork and G I can opener inside)
    Made up tent accessory kit (plastic mallet, peg puller, spare guy lines & runners, paracord, 10 spare pegs, elastic bands, a thin roll of gaffer tape, repair patches and seam sealer - sounds a lot but actually bit it all wrapped up small)
    Poundland collapsible, reusable water carrier 10L
    Poundland plate, cup and bowl
    Poundland emergency shelter
    Mountain Warehouse collapsible wash bowl 10L (with Life Venture clothes line inside)
    Made up Wash Kit, Poundland wash bag, Life Venture soap leaves, shampoo leaves, dry wash and fabric wash, BCB folding toothbrush, single blade disposable razor, mini toothpaste and mini deodorant.
    Spare clothes, usually pants, microfleece, short sleeve quick dry shirt, 2 x technical T shirt, 2 x long legged boxers, 2 x hiking socks, 1 pair of thick thermal socks (which I used to walk about in, in camp) thermal long johns and top.
    Several Poundland kit bags
    Food on the go, cupasoups, pasta snacks, super noodles, chocolate, chewy bars, mints
    Water bladder 3L
    Lid Outer
    Hi-Viz rain cover
    Gelert Emergency Poncho
    Poundland Emergency blanket
    Poundland light sticks x 2
    First Aid Kit (Poundland pouch and contents plus scissors, micro porous tape, blister stick and plasters, field dressing and safety pins, savlon, paracetamol and multi vitamins)
    Bog roll and wet wipes
    Lid Inner
    Maps and a waterproof case
    Flat magnifying compass
    Note pad and water proof pencil
    Odd bits of paper I tend to pick up along the way
    Right Bellows Pocket
    Large Trangia fuel bottle
    Hexi stove
    Hexi Tabs
    Small folding shovel
    Left Bellows Pocket
    Turbo Jet Lighter
    Krypton lamp
    Made up survival pouch, Poundland fishing gear pouch, Poundland fishing kit, BCB sewing kit, spare fire steel, Poundland survival whistle (whistle, compass, signalling mirror, dry compartment for more windproof matches) Poundland Swiss Army knife copy, small LED torch, tea light candles, Poundland light sticks x 2, BCB wire saw
    Lidl lensatic compass
    Wind up torch
    Bottom Compartment
    Gelert Tryfan sleeping bag
    Mountain Warehouse microfibre towel
    Top Loops
    Waterproof jacket (with gloves, a head tube and a hat in the pockets)
    Bottom Loops
    Windproof fleece

    It isn't over yet!

    I also had a Day sack, a Mountain Warehouse 10L bike bag, strapped to the rucksack (for when I staying at one site for a couple of days and popped out for a wander) and in the day sack I had:
    Water bladder 1L
    Packable waterproof trousers and jacket
    Another first aid kit
    Another emergency blanket
    Another emergency shelter
    Another survival whistle
    Another Swiss army style knife
    Another small LED torch
    More light sticks
    A couple of kit bags
    And some snacks for on the go.

    Nearly there!

    On my person, I had a slightly fancier survival whistle (which had the same as the Poundland ones, plus a built in light, thermometer and magnifying glass) a proper Swiss army knife and a couple of waterproof idiot pouches to put my phone, wallet and keys in.

    All of the above might sound like a lot, but there was actually quite a bit of room to spare in both bags (although not quite enough room for the kitchen sink) and I've probably forgot stuff too.

    This year I intend to camp out in the wild a lot more, so I'm in the process of cutting the amount of kit and refining the type of kit, I take out with me.

    It's been fun so far :D
