It’s the (second) most wonderful time of the year, yes Black Friday has launched and we’re on hand to give you a run through of our top product picks from men’s, women’s, kids’ footwear, clothing, equipment and tech!
First up we have the Berghaus Men’s Claggan Jacket. The Claggan is exclusive to us (can I get a heck yeah?), and is versatile enough to wear whether you’re exploring the city or in amongst the hills. What we love about the Claggan is it’s filled with Berghaus’ Hydroloft® synthetic insulation. Hydroloft® is treated with a water repellent coating, so if you get caught out in the rain, the jacket will still perform well (perfect for the British Isles). Not only does it protect you, it also protects the environment by using bluesign® approved fabrics. Definitely one to watch out for!
One of our best sellers, and we can see why. The Peter Storm Women’s Blisco is great for cold days, be it walking the dog or taking on the mountains. Peter Storm have over 60 years of outdoor knowhow, and they’ve funnelled that knowledge into the Blisco. Boasting heat transfer technology, the Blisco is big on warmth and a cosy hood adds another element of insulation. The jacket works well as a midlayer or outer layer in snowy conditions, perfect across autumn and winter months.
Another exclusive, the Berghaus Kids’ Bowood Waterproof Jacket is brilliant for junior explorers. Completely waterproof with a minimal design, the Bowood is super breathable with adjustable cuffs and hood. Adventures into the park and across the countryside just got that little bit more exciting!
Let’s take a step into our range of footwear. One of our favourite brands, Merrell, has released another exceptionally functional pair of walking boots. The Men’s Accentor GORE-TEX® Mid Walking Boots adapt to a variety of outdoor environments with ease. Firstly, let’s talk tech. Featuring an internal GORE-TEX® membrane, the Accentor’s are really (and I mean really) waterproof, and breathable. Moving to the outer, you’ll notice the outsole continues up the side of the boot, great for grip on tricky terrain. The mid-height ensures the Accentor’s offer valuable ankle support, with a reduction in bulk, in contrast to traditional walking boots.
A name that’s been around since the 1970’s, Brasher takes our top women’s footwear pick. Built on what makes Brasher great, the Women’s Country Master Walking Boot offers support, protection and comfort. A traditional leather pair of boots, the Country Master’s are tough on terrain. A durable Vibram® outsole offers maximum grip underfoot on the most slippery of surfaces. If you’re in the market for a new pair of boots, you can’t go wrong with this pick!
Not forgetting little feet, the Freedom Trail Kids’ Dovedale Boots are ideal for entry-level exploration. Introduce the kids to the outdoors with a pair of waterproof, durable boots. Made for jumping in puddles, running around the countryside and big adventures, the Dovedale Boots ensure feet are supported, comfortable and dry all day long.
Moving onto the most premium of all our Black Friday picks, we present the Garmin Fenix 5 series. The Fenix 5 is the ultimate multi-sport watch for any outdoor enthusiast. Whether you want to time your run, measure your heart rate or navigate your hike, the Fenix 5 handles it with ease. The wrist worn companion is jam-packed with technology to up your outdoor game, and weighing in at only 65g, you’ll hardly notice you’re wearing it.
A totally timeless piece of kit, how could we not mention the Basecamp Duffel from The North Face. Adventurers across the globe rely on the Basecamp to store their travel essentials from one country to the next. Side handles, top handles and removable shoulder straps make the Basecamp easy to grab on the go, whilst internal pockets allow for smart storage, so you’re never at a loss.
