We stock a huge range of Women's technical clothing for climbing, mountaineering, hill walking and for off road running. From Base Layer through to Waterproof Shell, we'll help keep the mountain weather out and you comfortable inside.

Underwear

Underwear

Possibly the most important layer to get right - nothing spoils a day in the hills like uncomfortable underwear. Enough said really

Base Layers

Base Layers

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.

Fleece and Midlayer

Fleece and Midlayer

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

Insulation

Insulation

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.

Soft Shell

Soft Shell

Softshell clothing offers a great compromise between an 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.

Waterproof Clothing

Waterproof Clothing

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.

Hats, Caps and Beanies

Hats, Caps and Beanies

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.

Gloves and Mitts

Gloves and Mitts

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!

Outdoor Legwear

Outdoor Legwear

We stock a huge range of different technical legwear from lightweight summer shorts to the most technical and weather resistant winter mountaineering trousers

Lifestyle and Travel Wear

Lifestyle and Travel Wear

Clothing designed for travel and casual use. Perfect for keeping cool in hot climates or for hanging about the pub apres climb.

Windproof Clothing

Windproof Clothing

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.

Accessories

Accessories

Belts, braces and repair materials for your technical outdoor gear.

Childrens Clothing

Childrens Clothing

Kids love the outdoors. They love it even more when dry and warm. The Climbers Shop have a great range of high quality outdoor clothing designed specifically for children, letting the young 'uns have the same performance from their gear as the parents.
