Kit Requirements...

Below are the kit requirements for impressions in the Compagnie. Please not that these are the minimums for basic kit, and nothing says you can't have more. Also note that a good secondary step would be to make a tunic, hood and hose of wool, in addition to the linen ones. I don't anticipate we'll be doing a lot of winter appearances, but wool is generally better in the rain, and the spring and fall can be quite cool at times.
