Best online shops for outdoor gear


Postby Mountainlove » Tue Dec 11, 2012 1:26 pm

Hello,

can anyone recommend some places to buy outdoor gear at great prices?

I have used
Field and Trek
SportPursuit
Cotsworld
Alpkit
Webtogs

and they are all great, but I was wondering if you can recommend some others sites which I have not come across yet?

Many thanks!!

Try ultimateoutdoors.co.uk and rockrun.com. Some good bargains to be had at various times.
Also sportpursuit.com who have flash sales of different brands on a revolving basis.
Have bought from all three over past year and saved money on good gear.

Here is a good wee online service, it's mostly aimed at womens outdoor clothing. They are based in West Yorkshire and regularly do some good deals and promotions.

TrekInn and Outletinn have a massive range and some good discounts 0- its in Europe so shipping does take a bit longer but I've had a couple of things off it

I used the website of a shop in Ipswich www.actionoutdoors.co.uk and their service was very good. They did make a mistake with my order but they were excellent in sorting it - and this actually fills me with confidence as I know that if something ever did go wrong (as it can with any online store) then they will be on the case.
The biggest problem with shopping online is poor customer service and not knowing when your item might arrive etc.

Nevis sport and blacks are good cause a reduction online is also a reduction in the shop. Craigdon mountain sports can have some good deals as well.mind you they along with tiso are all within a couple minutes walk of one another in Aberdeen so i guess they have to be competitive :D

I'll second these guys. Do discounts if your a MCoS or BMC member too. Just email them a scanned copy of your membership card and they'll edit your account to show the reduced prices in the basket. I've bought heaps from them.

I also go for:

www.climbers-shop.com

www.joe-brown.com

www.gear-zone.co.uk

I have to plug mountainwharehouse.com. I pretty much kitted myself out this year from them.

Another one for you: White + Bishop. Git a Berghaus Mera Peak (new version) for £186, almost £40 cheaper than Go Outdoors. :)
