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 a passion for exploration and discovery. We are an independent outdoor store in the centre of Cambridge and have gained a reputation for excellent friendly service and trustworthy advice to help you find the perfect piece of kit for your adventures.

Our stock hand selected is from world leading manufacturers such as Rab, Osprey, Fjallraven, Meindl, and Scarpa, tried and tested by our expert team 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:

One area we are extremely proud to excel in is our much so that we built an entire store around it! 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. 

In order to offer the best possible experience in our footwear store, we operate on an appointment basis, which you can book here. As much as we would love to be able to accept walk ins, we do prioritise those who have pre-booked and highly recommend booking to avoid disappointment and help us continue to give the best possible service we can!

Rab 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.
