Gift Idea: Invest in a premium waterproof jacket with £50 off

Developed for use on Alpine ascents and Scottish Winter climbs, the new Montane Alpine Endurance eVent® jacket £300 can handle the most extreme mountain conditions.
The foundation its performance rests on is the breathable, waterproof and durable nylon-faced eVent® fabric it's made from. Next is the attention to cut and design. The tailoring prevents arm lift raising the hem when you are reaching high and the articulated arms prevent seams constricting round the elbows and biceps.
Then there are the components and details. This is where our inner gear freak comes out to play. We can wax lyrical about the fine 12-13 stitch count on all the seams; the way the core body vents are angled for under-arm comfort and to work in conjunction with a pack; the colour matched 13mm micro-taped seams to maximise breathable surface area.
This jacket exudes quality and considered design that can only be fully appreciated in the flesh. So we'd recommend coming to see us and letting us show you the "ratchet cuffs", the A-line pockets with their integral rain drains and the water resistant YKK zips. What's more if you quote BLOG50 when you are in our Peebles store you will receive £50 OFF the full purchase price of £300 between 14th and 24th December only- while stocks last.

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.
