I've always been intrested in exploring abandoned places but I never have. I've finally decided to finally get out and do it with a few of my friends. One thing I hate is being unprepared for things like this, especially as it can be very dangerous. I just want to know what will be suitable for exploring abandoned buildings.

As stated above, although I would add a basic first aid kit to the list and some antibac wipes. Anything else is dependent on where youre going and how confident you are.

Oh, and a tripod.
Thank you for telling me that. I almost forgot one of the most crucial things which is a first aid kit and you reminded me. I hate the thought of being stuck in a situation when someone is hurt during an exploration which already can be potentially dangerous or even having a little uncovered cut which can be so annoying. Thanks a lot.

Seen it in other posts on here about avoiding taking anything that can be seen as a potential weapon, just in case you're unlucky enough to get caught

Steel toe capped boots for the win, along with some decent gloves

Here's what I always take:

  • black grippy gloves
  • Small backpack (not too big, you aren't robbing the place)
  • M3 rated mask
  • Trainers or hiking boots depending on how much climbing there is
  • Camera
  • First aid kit
  • 1L of water
  • Flashlights
  • Dark, robust clothing
  • Carl Zeiss Turmon 8x21 monocular
  • My "urbex buddy", 3 is a crowd imo
  • Sometimes proper climbing gear: harnesses, rope etc..

These days I just do it from the safety of home. There's that many images on Facebook, Instagram, Flickr or screenshots from Youtube I have a huge choice of what to borrow and Photoshop myself in to make it appear as if I've been there.
