    Guest Checkout For Sub Zero Store

    Guest Checkout

    With todays hectic lifestyles, many people just want a quick and simple way to pay for items purchased online. Providing a  guest checkout simplifies the ordering process and removes the requirement for personnel details to be held. It also reassures first time customers that their privacy is respected.

    Here at Sub Zero Store we are constantly updating our website to improve our customers buying experience. Over the past few days we have been making background changes to our site and part of that process has been the implementation of a guest checkout. You now have the option when checking out of registering an account with us or just paying as a guest. Both have their advantages as is discussed below.

    Benefits Of A Guest Checkout

    If you are only going to buy from Sub Zero Store once and don’t want to receive any marketing material, then the guest checkout provides a quick and efficient way to pay for goods. Just one page needs completing with your delivery details, and if you use an auto-fill app, then this can be done in a matter of seconds.

    The downside of using the guest checkout is that you loose all the benefits of registering an account with Sub Zero Store. This includes order history and parcel tracking information.

    Benefits Of Registering An Account

    Registering for an account with Sub Zero Store may take longer than using the guest checkout but it does have its benefits. Not only does it let you logon to your own account page to view past orders and shipping information, it also allows us to send you information on special offers and discount codes – we are not one of these companies who bombard our customers with marketing material as we dislike this ourselves. On average, we probably send out a newsletter email once a month, that’s it. If you would like to leave a product review, whether negative or positive,  then this is only possible if you are registered with us.

    It is simple to register an account with Sub Zero Store. Just go to the top of any page and click on the grey ‘Register‘ text

    Carabiner Mugs are possibly the coolest camping and trekking mugs around. They are compact and virtually indestructible,  holding 200ml of liquid that they will keep cool or warm thanks to there insulating double-walled construction. The bonus of having a tough karabiner handle compared to a normal closed handle on a normal camping mug is that it allows you to clip it onto your belt or pack when you’re on the move for quick and easy access.

    Sub Zero Store are giving one of these great stainless steel mugs away on all orders over £100 – there are even four bright coloured handles to choose from.

  5. Top Tips For Planning Your Own Outdoor Microadventures

    Leave a Comment

    Chinese philosopher Lao Tzu said, “The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step’. Modern adventurer Alasdair Humphreys believes, “You do not need to fly to the other side of the planet to find wilderness and beauty.” Put the two observations together and outdoor adventures can start on your doorstep.

    Alastair loves microadventures – www.alistairhumphreys.com/microadventures – where you can have fun for an evening, a night, a day or weekend with challenging or relaxing time spent outdoors. We call them ‘micrads’ and with our help at Sub Zero Store, you can most the most of the time. How much more fun at work would it be to share the experience of an overnight bivvy rather than talk about last night’s TV?

     

    Here are some tips to start you on your way:

    1. If time is tight, you might want to consider doing a little research or, at least, thinking before setting out. On the other hand, you can just pack a few essential and head off. Sometimes, planning an off-beat micrad can be half the fun off actually carrying it out. Freedom to set your own challenges, timescale and style is what it’s all about
    2. If you’re planning to stay out overnight, consider where you might sleep – and how. Or walk through the night for a completely different experience.
    3. Aim to travel as light as possible, bearing in mind your safety and comfort. Into your rucksack, pack a sleeping bag, sleeping mat, waterproofs, map, head torch, something to eat, a full water bottle and a small first aid kit. Spare warm clothing, such as a base layer set or down jacket, is sensible and you might want carry a small stove and tent or tarp if your micrad would benefit from carrying the extra weight.
    4. If you’re not bothered about carrying the weight, then a few luxuries, like an iPod, phone and favourite snacks will take up little room. If you’re heading for the hills or remote areas, then it’s sensible to carry a map, compass, whistle and bivvy bag.
    5. Check the weather before you leave but, unless the forecast is dire, don’t let bad weather put you off – make dealing with it part of the adventure.
    6. It’s always sensible to let family or friends know what you’re planning to do and how long you’ll be away.

  6. Stay Safe In The Countryside Walking With Livestock

    Leave a Comment

    As the weather warms up and more people head out for a walk in the countryside, Ramblers is reminding people to take care when walking through fields with livestock.

    “Now is the perfect time to go for a walk in the countryside and explore our wonderful network of paths” said Nicky Philpott, Ramblers’ campaigns and policy director. “However, the countryside is also a working environment and it’s important to be mindful of that, especially at this time of year when farm animals are rearing their young.”

    “Be sympathetic to farm animals rearing their young and give them space” says NFU livestock board chairman Charles Sercombe. “If you feel threatened by animals protecting their territory, or young, do not run, move to the edge of the field, and if possible find another way round.”

    “The countryside is a beautiful place to walk in” added Sercombe. “However, it is a working environment where animals graze. So it’s important to take care and be mindful of your surroundings so you can fully enjoy the experience.”

    Ramblers has outlined some basic tips to follow below, you can find out more about walking near livestock – and with dogs – by reading the Countryside Code and Scottish Outdoor Access Code.

    Do
    • Try to avoid getting between cows and their calves
    • Be prepared for cattle to react to your presence, especially if you have a dog with you
    • Move quickly and quietly, and if possible walk around the herd
    • Keep your dog close and under effective control on a lead around cows and sheep

    Don’t
    • Don’t hang onto your dog – if you are threatened by cattle, let it go as the cattle will chase the dog
    • Don’t put yourself at risk – find another way round the cattle and rejoin the footpath as soon as possible
    • Don’t panic or run – most cattle will stop before they reach you, if they follow just walk on quietly

  9. Join The Walking Revolution

    Leave a Comment

    Ramblers ‘Get Walking Week’ is supporting Britain on Foot, a campaign to encourage more people in Britain to get active in the great outdoors. If you know somebody who would like to ‘Get Walking’, then point them to our home page to make sure they stay warm and comfortable with Sub Zero performance clothing and accessories.

    From 4-11 May, the Ramblers will be hosting Get Walking Week – Britain’s biggest ever short walks festival – with thousands of walks across GB, aiming to get 100,000 people to their feet. The Ramblers knows that getting more people out walking will lead to healthier and happier lifestyles, so this May they’re making it easier than ever to take those first steps. During Get Walking Week there’ll be thousands of free short walks of 5 miles or less led by experienced walk leaders all throughout Scotland, Wales and England, taking place in countryside, cities, and along the coast.

    Walking has endless benefits, especially brisk walking: It’s good for your health; it lifts your mood; it is a fun, social activity that almost anyone can do without any specialist gear or equipment; it’s easy to fit into busy lifestyles; and you can start slowly and build up gradually – just to name a few.

    Benedict Southworth, Ramblers chief executive, said, “We want people all over Britain to join the walking revolution and take their first steps towards a healthier and happier lifestyle. We’ve seen so many different people benefit from regular walking and we know it can make a positive impact on people’s lives.”

     

    In England, Ramblers groups will be leading plenty of walks for all to enjoy. Walking for Health, England’s largest network of health walk schemes, run by the Ramblers and Macmillan Cancer Support, will also be inviting people across the country to walk with their local schemes, to help them get walking and keep walking.

    In Wales during the weekend of 4-6th May Ramblers Cymru will be hosting the Big Welsh Walk – inspiring families to take to their feet for some quality family fun outdoors. A flagship event in Cardiff’s Bute Park with family friendly activities will kick of the festival on 4th May.

    In Scotland there’ll also be a variety of short walks to choose from, and with it being the Year of Natural Scotland, there is no better time to get outdoors and get active in beautiful surroundings.
