Mad About Mountains is the epitome of a 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 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 kit for them!

We’d kind of be a bit weird if we weren’t a bit mad about outdoor kit as we do work in an outdoor shop!

Madness aside…your kit is important, when you’re out in the elements you don’t want to worry if you have the right jacket or have that niggling feeling that your boots weren’t quite the best fit. 

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

We like to match people to kit.  There is no one size fits all and its important to remember that.  You have to find the best kit for you and then you will be at your best in the mountains.

How can we help?  Use us!  Use us for our kit experience.  We’re around kit all day every day and it counts.  We’re always talking to reps, getting training from brands, deciding what to stock for the next season, helping customers with decisions and most importantly wearing kit and using it ourselves.

We always try and stock a wide range to cover whatever you may need. 

And…whatever we have in the shop we do online as well.  If you have a query then FB message, call or e-mail us.

We’d like to hear from you!   Keep adventuring 😊
