Over the summer we’ve developed more online content, and introduced remote services, such as our remote footwear fitting service, to benefit those who can’t make it into our Cambridge store, or prefer not to, for whatever reason.

To us outdoor enthusiasts, it feels somewhat unjust that on the cusp of prime adventure time, that we are gripped by a global pandemic with all advice pointing to... Read More

Images by Angus Whitby On the 5th of November, we were delighted to open the doors to our brand new Open Air store on Green Street stocking exclusively Fjällräven product, the largest range in East Anglia.
