As a small family business specialising in the manufacture of our own ultralight outdoor equipment and retailer of specialist outdoor brands we will be facing some challenges in the days and weeks to come just like many companies large and small in the UK.

Our website is still open with good stocks and we will continue to manufacture our products going forward.  We continue to dispatch product and hope to offer the same great service that our customers value. Just to say with the very large increase in online sales across the UK, you may experience some delivery delays.

We know that this will be potentially a tough time for everyone and we appreciate the business we receive.  We know it will not be possible for people to get out and about to do walking, backpacking and camping given government restrictions now in place.

10% off all items and Klarna Stage Payments

If you are interested in grabbing some great priced products, we are giving you 10% off all products on our website (they already enjoy some excellent discounts to the RRP).  Minimum spend £30

In addition, we are also introducing Klarna to our checkout in the coming days which allows you (if you wish) to spread the cost of your purchase in 3 equal instalments. Your chosen card will be charged automatically. No interest. No extra fees.

We do hope that you might consider us when looking to purchase your ultralight outdoor kit

#ValleyandPeakGardenCamping Fundraiser

A number of backpackers and wild campers have been tweeting about Garden Camping including Matt @backpackartist and Gary Bacon @fatgazbo.  We often camp in the garden when we can’t get out to the hills and it is a great way to do some initial product testing.  We saw that Becky had done a magnificent 440 reps of her stairs at home equivalent to climbing to  the top of Mt. Snowdon, so many are finding ways to replicate the outdoor experience at home!

After this, Gary Bacon @fatgazbo suggested that perhaps people could camp in their garden and donate the equivalent to a nights’s camp site fees to charity. We thought this was a great idea.

We would like to do the following;

From now until midnight Easter Monday, why not pitch your favourite tent in the garden and sleep overnight, (as many times as you want) and then donate to your favourite charity the equivalent of a night’s campsite fee for each night camped. (You could also donate to a campsite that is closed at the moment). Tweet or post on Instagram a picture of your overnight camp using the hashtag #ValleyandPeakGardenCamping.

For our part we will donate £2 for each photo tweeted or posted on Instagram showing your Garden Camp up to £250 in total to the two main Mountain Rescue Organisations splitting the money between England and Wales and Scotland.

So get #ValleyandPeakGardenCamping and take those photos!

We hope it won’t be too long before we can all get back to the hills and mountains.

Thank you and stay safe.
