About us

Mad About Mountains is a strongly rooted family business that started 30 years ago and we think that Mad About Mountains is by far the best description of who we are.

We literally are a close team of climbers, walkers, runners and mountaineers who are all Mad About Mountains. They make us feel awesome. We love being in them, on top of them, riding down them, running over them and…buying the best gear for them!

It would be a bit weird if we weren’t a bit mad about outdoor gear as we do work in an outdoor shop!

Madness aside…your gear is important, when you’re out in the elements you don’t want to worry that you don’t have the right jacket or have that niggling feeling that your boots aren’t quite the best fit and most importantly know you’re using the right gear to be safe.

We like to match people to kit. There is not one size fits all and it’s important to remember that. You have to find the best kit for you and then you will be at your best in the mountains.

The best kit you have is the kit you don’t think about!

How can we help?

Use us for our gear and outdoor experience. We’re around outdoor gear all day, every day and have a wealth of experience. We’re always talking to reps, updating our brand training, deciding what to stock for this season and next season, helping customers with decisions and most importantly wearing kit and using gear ourselves.

We always try to stock a wide range to cover whatever you may need outdoors and in the mountains.

Whatever we have in the shop we do online as well. If you have a query then don't hesitate to call, e-mail or facebook message us.
