We help you compare and choose the outdoor gear you need for camping, hiking, backpacking, wildcamping, bushcraft, walking/rambling, glamping and even going out for a muddy walk with your dog.
Whether you are about to trek the Appalachian Trail, hike the UK’s Coast to Coast, go car-camping with your family, ‘do’ the Wainwrights, start rambling in your local area, go wildcamping in Scotland, or take up bushcraft – whatever it is you intend to do, wherever it will be, you’re going to need some gear.
The challenge is that trying to buy outdoor gear has become quite a task due to the overwhelming choice, conflicting information and missing/incorrect product details. It’s well documented that shopping in general can be a bit of a nightmare nowadays.
Our aim is to give you all the information you need in order to help you make a decision. We gather the information (from ‘hopefully’ reliable sources such as the manufacturers themselves) you are most likely to need and provide you with a spec comparison of a number of products.
Finding it hard to choose which lightweight backpacking tent to buy because it’s difficult comparing all the information on numerous tents? Perhaps you’ve got your eye on a particular tent but keep finding conflicting information about what the poles are made from? Want a pair of wide-fit hiking boots, but can’t find many choices? Looking for a decent folding wood burning stove for under £30? Want a sleeping mat suitable for wildcamping in winter that is large enough for someone 6’4″? Ok, the examples are endless, but the point is that there’s a lot of people spending a lot of time scrolling round and round the internet, trying to make sense of the mountain (no pun intended) of information out there. Hopefully we can help.
