Pre-Order

With Pre-Order, you can purchase the latest items added to our store in advance of them arriving with us.

You Pre-Order is prioritised (at no additional charge); meaning that, as soon as the product arrives with us, we can wrap it straight back up and get it sent out to you - it often never even hits the stock room shelves!

Pre-Launch

With Pre-Launch, the date when we expect to receive the product ourselves is still a little too hazy to be confident in accepting Pre-Orders.

So, instead, you can submit your email address against the item you are interested in and we will email you as soon as stock arrives on the system.

Estimated Delivery Dates

Estimated Delivery Dates are given on Pre-Order and Pre-Launch products. They are for indication purposes only and can change at any time without notice.

The dates we provide are based on indications given by our suppliers. Whenever we get updated information from our suppliers we will endeavour to update the Estimated Delivery Dates provided on product pages.

      "Have found them very effective on boots in Scottish mountains, eg in Knoydart and Torridon. Very useful when backpacking as so light."

      "As a senior citizen working as a volunteer ranger in a National Trust property I was today able, for the first time, to wear these spikes on paths covered in sheet ice.As I have had a hip and knee replaced I have always had to be very cautious in such conditions but today I was able to walk with complete confidence as the spikes gave me firm footing even on steep slopes. I am delighted with my purchase."

      "These are ideal for icy sections – which to my mind are the most dangerous when walking in the hills and for snow as well, but I will have to experiment with these to see what will be the limits of them. These would have been very useful for me when I tried to get up a path on Pen-y-ghent in late November a couple of years back. Sheet ice all the way up and even trying to walk off the path,the grass was covered in ice, where the cold night before had frozen a myriad of streams coming down the hillside. I am amazed that I didn’t break my neck. The micro spikes linked by chain and weighing 180g each or 360 a pair (medium size) are attached to flexible rubber which stretches easily over boots or trail shoes. They are easy to put on while standing up and need minimal adjustment to fit correctly. I fitted them both to my Scarpa’s and Terrocs. After a -10C night it was not unsurprising that the roads and paths in our village were sheet ice. I set off to the village shop, a 2 mile round trip, using the Kahtoola microspikes. First outing with these. Within a few minutes, I declared these brilliant, the spikes grip ice superbly, so much so I could run on ice with complete safety ! Several trips last winter in the hills have proved these invaluable for tackling ice and light snow as well as using them for walking on icy paved areas.

      "Had my eye on these since last winter (2009) and decided to buy once the snow arrived in Nov (2010). They are phenomenal! Bought them primarily for running - great in snow and sheet ice - but also used them for walking. So impressed, that I ended up buying another pair for my wife (she thought they were brill) and my Dad bought a pair too and wore them almost constantly during the prolonged winter snap. "

      "I bought the Kathoola Microspike as a gift for my partner who does not feel confident when walking on ice \ hard packed snow. These spikes were absolutely superb and gave her the confidence that she lacked to walk in snow terrain of north wales moelwyns mountains.They alos proved invaluable just to get around nearer to home. They are small compact and lightweight so can easily be carried when not required. The service given by the climbers shop was excellent with item arriving the next day after ordering.Despite poor weather conditions. I am still waiting for another company to supply goods ordered in Dec 2010 who are still blaming the weather."
