Belts, braces and repair materials for your technical outdoor gear.
The first and most often overlooked layer in your outdoor layering system. A good technical baselayer will improve comfort, help move moisture away from your body and allow your other technical layers (midleayer, softshell and hardshell) to work as they are supposed to.
The mid layer provides both insulation and breathability to your layer system, helping move moisture vapour from your base layer through to be pushed out by your breathable shell jacket. They can be used as a comfortable outer in dry, mild conditions
Essential in winter, gloves or mitts insulate and protect your hands from the weather. Gloves offer better dexterity, but mitts have the upper hand (no pun intended) when it comes to being properly waterproof and warm!
By adding a hat you can cut a huge amount of heat loss (just like insulating the loft at home). Likewise a lightweight sunhat can protect your head from high temperatures and help prevent sunburn, sun stroke and heat exhaustion.
An insulation layer is designed to offer instant warmth and is generally a throw over layer. Perfect for static activities, or when you stop moving, such as food stops or belay stances, or as an active layer if the temperature drops seriously below zero.
We stock a huge range of different technical legwear from lightweight summer shorts to the most technical and weather resistant winter mountaineering trousers
Softshell clothing offers a great compromise between a out and out waterproof hardshell and a warm midlayer. Its a 'do it all' layer that copes brilliantly with changeable conditions and means you don't always have to grab your hardshell if the weather turns.
Clothing designed for travel and casual use. Perfect for keeping cool in hot climates or for hanging about the pub apres climb.
Technical undercrackers so you don't suffer any chaffage and discomfort in the nether regions after a day on the hill
One of the most critical items of outdoor gear you can own. Waterproof clothing not only means that rain won't stop play when you're outdoors, but could also mean the difference between life and death in severe mountain weather.
Windproof clothing is generally very lightweight, very breathable and very packable (some jackets pack down to not much bigger than a golf ball), yet can be thrown on as a shell to stop that wind chill effect.
