We are active outdoors people and have been fortunate to be invited to get behind the scenes of many outdoor suppliers, manufacturers and key story makers in the industry.

In this blog we will update you with some of those stories, about people, products or places which you may find entertaining and add to your coffee break!

If there's any juicy gossip to hear about, this is the place to find it!

You want to keep you pack as light as possible and weight can quickly add up with small bits and bobs however, taking the RIGHT small things can make all the difference. This newsletter gives you our top 10 small items, brings you our latest youtube video and gives you an update on new stock items!

Best wishes Bob, Rose and Beth
