Outdoors

Planning to climb a mountain or just hike the high street? Our stunning surroundings are waiting to be explored, and our outdoors shop is stocked with clothing and accessories which look as good on the street as they do on the hillside. Brands which combine performance with good design for men and women include Patagonia, Howies, Aigle, Haglöfs, Carhartt and Kühl. Our footwear range includes trail shoes, sandals and wellies as well as Camper for men.

We’re particularly proud of our range of accessories (everything from Victorinox pocket knives to headtorches, flasks and socks) and bags. We stock Fjällräven backpacks alongside Cumbrian brands Chapman and Millican, both renowned for the impeccable design and workmanship of their bags.

Millican

Jorrit & Nicky, Co-founders of Millican, share a deep love of the open road. Following a chance encounter one day on the border of Ecuador and Peru, they ended up travelling together for two years. On return to England they were inspired by the true story of Millican Dalton, a maverick from the 1900s who swapped his existence in London for an extraordinary life of adventure in the mountains of the Lake District and they decided to follow in his footsteps. Now based in the Lake District they make sustainable bags; bags that help others leave the clutter of life behind and strike out on their own. Find their range in our shop now.

Patagonia

Patagonia has grown over the last thirty years. Their values still reflect those of a business started by a band of climbers and surfers with a focus on simplicity and utility. Their inspiring mission statement is simple: ‘Build the best product, cause no unnecessary harm, use business to inspire and implement solutions to the environmental crisis.’ We love their range of practical clothing including this men’s fleece made from 85% recycled Synchilla® polyester.

Today, the brand is recognised globally for producing timeless and functional outdoor clothing and accessories. This women’s knee-length cape is inspired by the Sami’s versatile and practical Luhkka. With a hood, a lightweight synthetic lining and water resistant fabric, this is the ideal protection against the cold and bitter winds this season.
