Our Cambridge store is located in Green Street in the heart of the historic city centre, just around the corner from the most prestigious colleges. We are an independent retailer and constantly strive to provide the best outdoor gear alongside sound, experience-based advice. We provide excellent customer service in a friendly and honest manner
We occupy three premises on Green Street. Numbers 11 and 12 are joined together and stock outdoor clothing for gents and ladies, from waterproof coats and trousers through to insulated jackets, hats, gloves scarves and thermals. We have gear from small to large rucksacks, sleeping bags and mats, a huge range of trekking poles by Leki, travel accessories, climbing hardware, camping supplies and tents. Number 15 is our footwear shop with over 120 models of boots, shoes and sandals including junior sizes. We also cater for gents up to size 15UK and offer socks and gaiters. You can see the pictures from our shops on social media.
Established in 1990 we have earned a reputation as one of the best outdoor shops in the whole of the eastern region. We have accomplished this through no-nonsense friendly service and insistence on stocking quality gear. We have won prizes and accolades, but are nonetheless aiming to constantly improve. If you do choose to buy from us, our exemplary aftercare will ensure any problems will be swiftly resolved.
We employ people with a passion for the outdoors and train them to have a high level of knowledge and willingness to help our customers make an informed choice. If you buy from us, rest assured our advice is sound and the gear we stock we test ourselves. Our staff are not focused on selling, but on providing friendly and unbiased advice. Often we will discourage potential buyers if we think the product is not right for the activity they wish to pursue. It might seem somewhat eccentric given that we are a retail shop, but we have found that our customers appreciate our honest advice. You can see highlights of what adventures (or troubles) our staff get themselves into during their travels on our Facebook page and Blog.
We run a dedicated fitting service in our shop at 15 Green Street in Cambridge. With knowledgeable and friendly staff and a great product selection, we can help almost anyone to find the right boots. In fact, through the years we have become quite a destination for walking boots, with people driving considerable distances to take advantage of our advice. We only stock high quality products, that are selected based on their fit and function and not on their shelf appeal. We try to mimic our advice online writing in detail about the fit and sizing on all boots and shoes. If you can, come and visit us, but keep in mind that fitting boots can take anything from 15 minutes to 1 hour so please plan accordingly.
Everything that we stock, we would be happy to use ourselves. Since you need to depend on the gear you have bought whilst enjoying the outdoors we don't believe in cutting corners. We select products with functionality, durability and value in mind. We stock premium goods which sometimes means that they are slightly more expensive then their competitors, but in terms of value we think they are supreme, often lasting longer and performing better. All of our products are genuine articles coming from manufacturers or official distributors.
