This season, Cotswold Outdoor and Snow+Rock are coming together to bring you more adventure than ever before. Because we don’t just share passion and expertise, but a duty to protect the outdoors too.


Together we can walk, run, camp and climb, but we can also learn, change and make a difference. We’re here to help you find kit that lasts, so your adventures and the places you love can too. Whatever gets you out there this season, make the right choice with our experts. For adventure, for the planet.


Read on to learn more about how we're working together with Snow+Rock and our experts who are helping us to bring the season to life.









Buy right




We’ll help you find the right kit that fits you and is fit for purpose, so you don’t need to replace it sooner than necessary. With comfort and performance on every adventure, you’re more likely to use your kit for longer which is good for you and the planet. 


Buy better




We’ll help you invest in high-quality kit from the best brands, that’s built for adventure, not for landfill, so you know it will keep adventuring as long as you do. And now, you can make even more sustainable choices with the Our Planet range.


Buy to last




Looking after your kit is what really helps it stand the test of time. Our services such as footwear protection, Repair & Care, and Recycle my Gear help you to care for your kit, keep it performing at its best, and dispose of it responsibly too.

 “For me, it’s about doing our bit to ensure that we are living in a sustainable way, so the earth is here for future generations.”

Jon has a deep connection with the outdoors and a passion for protecting it, especially since moving to the Lake District to be closer to the fells and lakes he loves. An experienced fell walker, Jon joined Cotswold Outdoor six years ago and loves nothing more than sharing knowledge and expertise about the latest kit and the surrounding area, so our customers can enjoy the outdoors to the fullest, in the most sustainable way possible.

 “Adventure means happiness. It means surprise, by what you can see, by what you can feel. It’s about not knowing what is going to happen and just tackling anything. That’s adventure.”

Begonia has a passion for hiking fast and has been working for Cotswold Outdoor for just over three years. She believes that being an in-store expert is not only about helping our customers make the right choice when it comes to their kit; it’s also about drawing upon your own experiences of the outdoors and sharing those too.

“We only have one planet and we really do need to look after it. Sharing outdoor spaces really allows us to appreciate it and to understand how we can protect our environment.”

Mark has a passion for adventure, especially ones in his self-renovated campervan. He’s worked for Cotswold Outdoor for eight years and loves to meet like-minded people who have a shared passion for the outdoors, but also a shared understanding about how fragile it is. To Mark, sustainability doesn’t mean not having the equipment you need to spend time outdoors, it’s about choosing the right kit, then looking after it and making it last.

Cotswold Outdoor Expert, South Cerney


“The outdoors to me… it’s my life. It’s everything. A safe place and somewhere in which to find space just for me. It’s definitely shaped who I am. Without it, I wouldn’t have the confidence that I do. It’s given me so much enthusiasm for life.”

Growing up on a farm, the outdoors has played a big part in Charlie’s life for as long as she can remember. She started working for Cotswold Outdoor when she turned 16, and eight years later she still brings that same passion to her job when talking to customers about their adventures. She loves sharing her own experiences and feels especially proud when customers are inspired to go out and experience the places she loves.
