Our Cotswold Outdoor store in Manchester, Deansgate is around 7000sq feet and packed with great outdoor products over three floors - the largest being the basement. Rucksacks and accessories can be found on the ground floor. Upstairs you will find a large range of camping equipment, sleeping bags and camping stoves, and a fantastic library with books for every outdoor enthusiast, with a full range of OS maps. We are constantly expanding the library so if we don't have what you need, just let us know and we will see what we can do.
The best is saved for the Aladdin's cave-like basement where you can find our extensive boot range, men's and women's wear, and outdoor and travel accessories such as watches and GPS systems, water purification systems, sunglasses, and climbing and mountaineering equipment. We stock a comprehensive range of trusted brands from the UK and the world, such as Rab, Mountain Equipment, Haglöfs, Mountain Hardwear, Montane, Buffalo, Berghaus, Lowe Alpine, The North Face, Craghoppers, and many more. We also offer an excellent boot fitting service, so whether you are looking for your first pair of high-altitude mountaineering boots, a three-season walking boot for the lakes, a pair of trail running shoes or your very first pair of walking boots, our aim is to get you the best possible fit. Try and set aside an hour of your time to allow us to give you a thorough evaluation of your needs and send you home with the best possible boots for you.
We also are proud to have on our team some of the most enthusiastic and highly experienced staff, who are always pleased to offer sound advice based on their own extensive experiences. Between us we have travelled all over the globe, and have passionate mountaineers, climbers, skiers, mountain bikers, trail runners and walkers in our ranks. Whatever your sport and activity, and whatever level, we are more than happy to pass on our knowledge, recommend places to visit or just swap adventure stories.

We are proud of our links with local groups and organisations, and do whatever we can to support them.
