As part of our continual product training programme, GO Outdoors partnered up with several brands to help inform our staff on their new autumn/winter ranges.
In the morning were classroom style with presentations from clothing and technology brands and the afternoons saw the group heading out in test kit to experience the fine British weather.
On the Rab experience day our staff were in Great Malvern taking in the heights of the Malvern Hills. The hills proved to be great testing ground for Rab’s fantastic kit. The steep up hills tested the wicking ability of the Aeon Plus base layers and the Vapour-rise protected everyone from the wind. On the way to the summit rain clouds loomed only miles away and the wind picked up. A few pulled out their Latok Alpines for extra protection as the wind had become so strong it was difficult to walk in a straight line. The Rab beanies also helped to keep away the cold.
A great time was had with the folks from Rab, and our staff came away with great things to say about their tried and tested gear.
