The Great British countryside is made for a life outdoors – with our vast green spaces, incredible moorlands, and exquisite coastlines, it’s easy to discover natural beauty on our doorsteps. Although the British weather might not always be on our side, with adventure ready clothing and accessories, you can tackle whatever Mother Nature throws at you. If your New Year’s resolution for 2017 is to keep fit, then what better way to stick to those healthy aspirations than to get out into our green and glorious countryside and walk off those Christmas treats? We’ve got outdoor gear for men, women and even man’s best friend to ensure the whole family can enjoy the great outdoors, whatever the season and whatever the weather!
For outdoor life, look to Barbour’s Original North Sea Outfitters collection to offer rugged, fit for purpose clothing that is not only weatherproof, but stylish too. If you’re after a more traditional look for outdoor pursuits, then the Barbour Country Classics are the ideal place to start. For both men and women, the Country Classics collection has relaxed fit clothing meaning great ease of movement when you’re out and about. The women’s Beachcomber collection is great for coastal days, and is inspired by Barbour’s North East homeland, so you know it’s engineered for the wet weather! Our Fjallraven collection of bags and rucksacks are the perfect outdoor accessories – with their no.1 selling Kanken bag offering ample room for your walking essentials, plus a handy seat pad in the back for tea breaks!
When it comes to outdoor footwear, you can’t go wrong with a pair of trusty wellington boots, and we all know that Hunter is the first name that springs to mind when we think of those timeless country boots! We love the Balmoral boots with a neoprene for keeping your toes warm and ensuring firm and robust boot that can withstand tricky terrains. If you’d rather a shorter boot, then our Musto GORE-TEX walking boots are great for trekking or taking on longer walks, as they keep out water while ensuring your feet stay cool and comfortable in the warm weather while offering a sturdy and supportive sole for days out in the great outdoors.
