We are a small family run company and between us we have tackled (and keep tackling) most things the average person might seek advice on regarding equipment and clothing, be it camping, trekking, cycling, adventure racing, horse riding, running, world travel and D of E. We have also, as some of these images might indicate, travelled fairly extensively (on a backpackers shoe-string) in the last 10 years, visiting more than 20 countries world-wide putting our 'lightweight’ approach into action with every step.
Our aim here is not to stock every known product you might find elsewhere, but be much more discerning and selective with products we have all used and know to 'work' in most situations as you expect them to. We also aim provide a first class service, making it as easy as we can to browse, purchase and exchange any items we sell. We also want to make the whole experience fun and informative as well, so we hope you enjoy the podcasts, video and additional media which can be found at The Outdoors Station, our outdoors community information hub.
Our motto is ‘minimum weight - maximum fun’. The aim is to bring you a range of carefully selected, well researched, value for money products from around the world, which will lighten your load and enhance your outdoor experience.
