Since opening, we have built a unique and friendly atmosphere within our store. We aim to appeal to all members of the outdoor community, from walkers and mountaineers to paddlers and cavers, and at all levels from total beginners to the most experienced. Our store team have a wealth of knowledge, built upon from their experiences of travel and adventure. So whether you're looking for advice on the best routes in the Beacons or kitting yourself out for your next trip to the Alps, we've got the staff to help you make the right choices.

Click & Collect

Our Click & Collect service is available in store – simply select your items online, enter your postcode, and select your local store for collection (subject to stock availability).


Our store is ideally situated in the market town of Brecon, which is famed for its ancient Cathedral, its Georgian architecture and its Jazz festival, held annually every August. Brecon town nestles in the shadow of the Beacons and is a popular holiday base for those seeking adventures in the hills and surrounding areas. Located on the crossroads at the corner of the Street, we are a 2 minute walk down the hill from the Tourist Information centre. There are also two public car parks available at the rear of the store.

Boot fitting

Our staff team are extremely knowledgeable and are more than happy to spend time with each individual to ensure best fit and that the most appropriate footwear is found. Some of our staff team have further developed their knowledge of boot fitting, in order that they can help customers with a whole range of boot difficulties. If you feel you could benefit from this extra knowledge, please contact the store to arrange to see one of these team members.

Our library

Our well-stocked library has one of the most comprehensive collections of outdoor books and DVDs in Wales. In addition to the complete range of Lonely Planet Guides, we carry a wide selection of climbing and walking guides (not just to Wales and the UK, but to Europe and the rest of the world as well). We also stock a whole host of books on outdoor skills and techniques, and a fascinating collection of narrative, adventure travel, and biographical books. We also stock the complete set of Ordnance Survey Landranger and BMC Harvey maps, have a huge selection of OS Explorer maps (both paper and laminated) and carry a wide selection of Harvey maps. If you cannot find the book, map or DVD you want, just ask a member of our staff team and we'll see if we can get it for you.

During a kit talk we can tailor informative sessions based around the kit that you require on your expedition. if coming into the store is not possible with your group then it may be possible to bring the kit talk to you. details of which would be arranged on a case by case basis.
