Our ranges are constantly changing to meet the needs of the modern outdoor enthusiast and include clothing from Rab, Salomon, Patagonia and Mountain Equipment and Mammut and equipment from the likes of Black Diamond, Petzl, Osprey, Edelrid, and Wild Country. Our footwear comes from companies such as Salomon, Scarpa, Meindl and Zamberlan, while our tent range is possibly the largest range of Hilleberg tents in the country.
If we don't stock what you want, we can also order it in, normally in just a few days.

Our highly experienced staff have the in depth knowledge to help you with any enquiry. We have experts in every type of mountain activity and for all seasons on our staff, from mountaineering to rock climbing, fell running to backpacking and every variant in between. Our team are on hand to provide you with the right advice and the right gear to suit your individual needs and circumstances.
