Mountain Equipment Spring/Summer 2011 is here

Our spring deliveries have started to trickle in and we’ve already received one of the biggest. Mountain Equipment has been our top clothing and equipment brand for years and this is no exception, we’ve got a fantastic range of sleeping bags, loads of new mens and womens clothing and a few new products to whet your appetite for the summer months.

Mountain Equipment Trident Jacket:

Mountain Equipment Trident Jacket

The Mountain Equipment Trident Jacket is a midweight softshell designed for high-aerobic uses in demanding conditions. It would be an ideal choice for summer alpinism, climbing and fell walking plus if we have a cool, windy summer (heaven forbid) it would make a great mountain biking softshell.

Mountain Equipment Chill Slackline

This is a bit of a first for us, we’ve never stocked any slacklining kit before, however more and more people seem to be making it part of their time in the hills so we thought we’d give it a go. The Chill and it’s longer brother, the Passion are ideal for people taking their first steps into this growing sport.

Mountain Equipment Steall Pant

With more people due to stay in the UK on holiday this summer we thought we should re-evaluate our range of summer trekking and hiking trousers. We’ve always been keen on soft-shell alpine trousers but these can be a bit too much on a muggy day in the Lakes or Wales so this summer we’ve added a range of lighter trousers and shorts specifically for summer walking.

Hi, I'm a keen hiker and climber who grew up in the North of Cumbria before moving to Leeds for university. I used to be a very keen skier but a series of accidents led to me dropping the sport in favour of climbing. I've also recently rekindled an interest in mountain biking and am often to be found charging round local trail centres. I started at Facewest in August '08 and currently work in Web Development and Sales. Thanks, Sam
