Our store opened its doors in early November 2006, just off the M20 near Maidstone. The store is ideally situated for people travelling into Kent and perhaps beyond. The store has a vast range of outdoor clothing, equipment and accessories from well known brands such as Berghaus, The North Face, Helly Hansen, Mountain Equipment, Scarpa, Meindl, Salomon and many more; as well as a selection of 'apres outdoor' brands such as Animal, White Stuff.

D of E

With an extensive kit list, buying stuff for D of E can be a bit of a nightmare if you're not quite sure if you want a Mini Trangia or an MSR Pocket Rocket. Our team are well equipped to help you get the kit you need. We also carry a range of D of E endorsed products, which are good products for a good price. However much of your list you have left, come to us and we'll help you tick some key pieces off.
