Having spent years talking to people about down products, whether that’s a jacket, sleeping bag or even a pair of slippers, very few have had the confidence to go ahead and wash the product on their own, especially when they have just spent an arm and a leg on it. This small guide is here to explain that it’s not.... More

How to Care for Your Waterproof Clothing

Harry B | 10/08/2017 12:40:04

Why do I need to re-proof my waterproof clothing? Let’s put it this way; you wouldn’t buy a Ferrari and never have it serviced. A waterproof garment contains a piece of fabric sandwiched between the outer and inner of the jacket, a membrane. This membrane contains millions of tiny holes, holes which are so small that water droplets.... More

Photo: Brennen (Bren Dawg) Page resting after last years Cullin Ridge Traverse Staring with the technical mumbo jumbo… Traditionally sleeping bag manufacturers used their own testing methods and experience to calculate their products performance, which was OK unless you wanted to make a fair comparison across different brands. So in 2005 a European standard for sleeping.... More

Route of the Month: Bilberry Terrace

Will C | 23/02/2017 12:00:26

The route we're going to look at this month is Bilberry Terrace, first climbed in December 1894. It's a Grade 3+ Scramble located on one of Snowdonia's most looked at, but least climbed venues: Lliwedd. The cliff itself is huge, home to a variety of routes, but for some reason it fails to attract the footfall of some.... More

Bob’s route of the month: Crimpiau Circuit

Will C | 16/11/2016 09:58:51

Visitors to Snowdonia are often drawn to the loftier ranges that dominate the National Park: The Glyderau, Carneddau, and of course, Snowdon itself. The magnetism of the higher ground is understandable given their fame and the glorious views from Fawr, Fach, Dafydd, Llewelyn and Yr Wyddfa. That said, if time is short or poor weather prevents travel.... More

Timeless Essentials: The Rab Microlight Range

Will C | 27/07/2016 14:20:43

The ubiquitous down jacket is where it all started for Rab way back in 1972. The company’s name sake, “Rab Carrington”, forced off the mountain in bad weather on a climbing trip to Patagonia, found himself helping his friend Hector Vieytes to complete a sleeping bag order for the Argentinian army. It was these production skills and his.... More

   

Great deals and first class customer service; really nice people, too. Fun website - the few typos are easily forgiven as you can tell that they are passionate about outdoor gear, and the product descriptions are honest e.g. "Not the most technical item but one you will keep coming back to" sort of thing. Keep up the good work!
