Please Note: We have had to go live with this our new website before we are fully happy with it, so would like to apologize for some less functional aspects and lack of content but would like to assure you that we are working hard to rectify this.

We have changed our catalogue to an activity based format so please take some time to familiarize yourself with our new categories.

Your security, safety and the checkout are all fully functioning so you can continue with confidence. Occassionally, some products will say that they are available to "click and collect only" when they shouldn't be, if this happens and you want to have them delivered please email and we will resolve that for the product in question for you swiftly when possible.

Due to the above we haven't been happy going full steam ahead with our full sale area and new promotions, but we have been able to put a promotion from one of our top brands together to whet your appetite in the mean time.

Get a FREE gift from Salewa with every Salewa product purchased online (while stocks last) including a free pair of socks with walking shoes and boots and a free hydration bladder with every rucksack.
