Despite the benign appearance of many British landscapes, it pays to be well-prepared for fast-changing weather conditions when out for a day’s walk.
Baselayers are the foundation of comfortable outdoor clothing. With a variety of styles, weights and materials available, there’s bound to be an option that appeals – and at prices that mean there’s no need to stick at just one! Underwear for women who love the outdoors has been a rather neglected area but we have top options for active women. Plus, we haven’t forgotten about the kids who get their own sizes in thermals to share the fun and stay outdoors longer.
Midlayers add extra insulation that turns a chilly day out into a cosy adventure. For general use, down the pub or at work, they are versatile, smart and hard wearing.
Softshell has really come of age and is no longer seen as an ‘odd’ category. Technical fabrics combined with shrewd design and sound manufacturing result in garments that are versatile and flexible in use in a wide variety of conditions. Windproof, warm and almost waterproof, softshell is a great choice for most days outdoors in Britain.
Headgear rounds off dressing sensibly outdoors – you can’t have too many hats! It’s not just hats, of course, and our neck tubes offer a range of ways to make the most of the benefits of the simple but effective design.
Cold hands and fingers can ruin an active day out so our thermal, windproof and waterproof gloves are ideal for staying comfortable whatever the weather. With head and hands sorted, don’t forget to treat your feet and toes with thermal and waterproof socks.
