Countryside Ski & Climb first opened its doors way back in 1978 with Mountain Equipment as a launch brand and today, some 50 years from its beginnings, Mountain Equipment is still proven to perform.  Whether you're on an expedition to the Himalaya or learning the ropes in North Wales, they use the very latest in design technology and work closely with outdoor professionals (both men and women) to ensure their gear works in the field both consistently and durably.

Mountain Equipment clothing and equipment is now legendary in its design and build quality. You can be safe in the knowledge that very few brands have withstood the test of time like this and that means a lot when you’re facing horrendous weather and a long walk out.  If you needed any further reassurance as to whether Mountain Equipment is the right brand for your next adventure, then know that they have participated in every British first ascent of an 8000m peak and they’ve been part of more than 175 Everest summits by International Mountain Guides and Sherpas.  Browse our comprehensive range here and see for yourself what we’re talking about.

Products coming soon

The Countryside Ski & Climb team are in the process of adding new products to our website every day. But in the true spirit of the outdoors adding products is very much like climbing a mountain, it's further than it looks, it's higher than it looks and it's harder than it looks.

We will be adding to each of the categories and brands on a regular basis but if there is something you specifically want in the mean time, please either visit our comprehensively stocked Stevenage Old Town store, telephone or send us an email with your query. We will endeavour to respond immediately.
