Sprayway Reactor and Firebird arrive in Harrogate

A couple of new jackets have just arrived in our Harrogate store to complement our growing range of lightweight, synthetic insulated clothing at a competitively priced £80. Sprayway have introduced the women's Firebird with zoned insulation (60g in the hood, 80g in the sleeves and 100g in the body) which weighs only 427g and packs away into its own pocket. Incredibly versatile, this jacket can be worn as an outer layer, carried in your rucksack to provide spare insulation if conditions change and it isn't too bulky to wear underneath your waterproof if conditions turn really bad.
Sprayway Women's Firebird £80
The men's equivalent is the Reactor and incorporates the same features for a barely increased weight of 504g. Both jackets are currently available only in our Harrogate store

25 years on...still going strong

In November 1992 we were working hard to get our shop in Peebles opened. We were living in a draughty old shepherd's cottage in the Moorfoot Hills at the time and one day, our landlady remarked that there was a famous mountaineer coming to give a fundraising talk in aid of the village hall. It seemed unlikely but yes, Chris Bonington was coming to Carrington.
It proved to be a memorable evening that people still occasionally mention to us today. Standing room only with an eclectic audience of school children, Women's Institute stalwarts, elders of the kirk and a smattering of outdoor enthusiasts. It probably wasn't the kind of gathering Bonington was used to speaking to but his professionalism and communication skills ensured that his stories came alive for everyone in the room.
At the end of the presentation we joined the scrum of autograph hunters and got his signature on a poster which we hung in our new shop on the day it opened. It stayed on the wall for quite a few y…

Surprise return of The Angry Corrie

It's not often that a brown envelope contains a pleasant surprise- but yesterday one arrived at the Peebles shop that did. Totally unexpected Issue 78 of The Angry Corrie, Scotland's self-styled "first and finest hillzine". We'd got used to the sporadic nature of the issues but with the previous one being published in Spring 2010 we had assumed that Murdo Munro had hung up his bobble hat and TAC had quietly retired. It's sometimes nice to be wrong- so The Angry Corrie is available again, with the familiar mix of hill news, access issues and list-ticking at only £1 a copy.
