We asked our customers which were their favourite brands in 2013
2013 was a year of testing weather, who can forget the snow which seemed to stick around until April/May time, a wait for the sun and then being blasted with record heat for what felt like a pretty reasonable British summer time. As we stroll back through what has so far been quite a mild winter, we took to Facebook and Twitter to ask our customers – Which were your favourite brands of 2013?

Try as we may, we can’t all be great at knowing what to buy somebody for Christmas. You usually get some help with that ‘main’ present, but when it comes to some small optional extras for the stocking, or even for that colleague in the work ‘Secret Santa’, you can be left scratching your head. In this article we’ll take a look at some of our low cost favourites.
If you’re looking for a bike this Christmas, you may be wondering where to start. It’s not always easy to choose the right one when there are so many styles on offer. So which one should you pick?

We set off with a large rucksack with enough to keep us self sufficient in the hills – tent, stove, waterproofs and most importantly midge repellent! We had a great adventure, but I have vivid memories of getting very wet and cold (and this was July!).

Autumn is a fantastic time to go walking, but don’t take our word for it.
Around this time of year we see a lot of people come into our stores asking about walking gear, whether it’s a new winter coat or some kendal mint cake for a brisk autumn hike – there’s something about the fresh feeling that really blows the cobwebs away. Monty Halls knows a thing or two about the outdoors being an explorer and a marine biologist; he’s also part of the Merrell pack, and he stopped by to give us his thoughts on why he loves this time of year.
We’d seen the bikes in the office and had been itching to get our hands on them for weeks. It was finally time for a test ride.
