For those of us who thought spring was on the way, this week’s been a bit of a shock with some winter snow on the hills to play in.
Apart from shivering, we’ve been doing a brisk trade in last minute winter kit as well as spring gear and even some summer clothing (for those customers making a break for some sunshine abroad). All in all though, 2018 is here and we’ve much to look forward to. We intend to carry on as last year – stocking great brands, special kit and offering as much advice and friendly service as you need.
Sale stuff –worth a surf - There’s still plenty of great gear with great prices online – it’s well worth a surf to see what’s still available. Notable offers are – Half price Men’s UD ultra jackets (£70 – you won’t find this cheaper, it was Trail Magazine’s ‘Best in Test’,…women's also available); 20% off Fjallraven (last few days of this offer); Great deals on all Ultimate Direction Signature running packs (well worth a look – these are the best out there & your last chance to get them!).
New Brand! – Meindl - We’re so pleased to be stocking a range of Meindl boots. If you are in the market for a well-made, durable and comfortable walking boots and shoes then call in and try our Meindl range.
New in - Brooks Women’s running clothing - Smart designs and great looks, the Brooks running clothing that’s just arrived is quality and designed for comfort & performance. It’s really worth taking a look at the tights and tops in the range (also, we have a great range of sports Bras from Brooks)…
New Stock – OMM - Back in stock for the summer, we are big fans of the OMM packs and accessories. Simple, well-made and usable designs, the OMM pack range has much to offer and is good value too.
New Stock – Brooks Trail Shoes - This month we’ve also brought in the Brooks PureGrit trail running shoe in Men’s and Ladies’ versions. We’ve been impressed on demo runs with this shoe – it’s well-constructed, comfortable and is a good all rounder on the trails. Works well in mud too (which is just as well for our local trails at the moment!).
Just arrived - La Sportiva Nucleo - We’ve just booked in the men’s and ladies La Sportiva Nucleo boots and they look really nice. We’re really pleased to see the same great quality that we get in the trail running shoes with La Sportiva. This is a Gore Tex Surround boot (meaning it’s extra breathable – all around the boot) and it provides a great fit – ideal for a range of foot shapes, it's a supportive boot for all seasons (with the extra breathability).
As always, if you have any questions or need anything - just ask!
