Products that have stood the test of time
This week the Queen became the longest reigning monarch in British history. A lot has changed in outdoor innovation in the length of her reign, but many brands have a key piece or range that has stood the test of time and lasted for years. Lets celebrate some of those long running outdoor reigns.
With so much to see in the beautiful Peak District, you’ll likely want to spend more than just an afternoon here. We’ve rounded up our pick of 10 campsites and caravan parks, ideally located to allow you to get the most out of your trip.
With such a large range on offer, and so many brands to choose from, it can be quite daunting selecting your gear. To give you a little more insight, we’ve asked members of staff at GO Outdoors HQ – and from around our stores – to suggest their top 5 products in certain areas for the Summer 2014 season.

How can you make sure you are protected against this?
Easter is here, and for many it is usually the start of their camping Summer. This time last year we were facing double digit heat and an early Summer, while this year – there’s still snow on the ground for a lot of the UK. Since we know a lot of you have had to cancel your camping holidays for the weekend (not everyone likes the cold) we thought we’d take to Facebook and Twitter and ask our customers, If they could take a famous person camping, who would it be and why?
It’s always exciting coming into a new season, even if the weather doesn’t strictly follow us. In this series, we’re asking around head office for some staff ‘favourite 5s’ of the upcoming season. One of the items we are asked most about through the year are tents, so we went back to our Tent buyer Nick for his favourite 5 of 2013.
