Open Air: The Outdoor Store in Cambridge

Passionate about outdoors, hillwalking, climbing over rocky spires or travelling to locations far and near - you are not alone. Open Air was created in 1990 out of that passion. We are an independent outdoor shop in the centre of Cambridge and have gained a reputation for excellent friendly service and trustworthy advice. Our stock is from tried and tested brands such as Rab, Osprey, Fjallraven, Meindl, and Scarpa, but we also include a wide choice of lesser-known quality makes. All of our products are available online with free delivery if you spend over £50. Collect in-store is available too.

Walking Boots and Shoes:

We are a leading stockist of Meindl walking boots and shoes, with one of the largest selection of models in the UK, and are proud to be one of just four Scarpa Pro Shops covering both hiking and climbing footwear in the UK. In our dedicated footwear store in Cambridge we also stock Zamberlan, Altberg, and Hanwag hiking boots and shoes. Experienced staff are on hand in-store to offer a boot fitting service second to none.

Rab Down Jackets, Hilleberg Tents, Fjallraven Clothing and Packs

We love premium down jackets and sleeping bags from British make Rab, and stock a wide choice of their classic Microlight jackets alongside an extensive range of Fjallraven clothing and packs including a huge range of colours of the iconic Kanken packs. We are one of a select group of shops with an extensive choice of Hilleberg Tents - made in Europe with amazing attention to quality and durability.
