Yvon Chouinard, the founder and owner of Patagonia once said “don’t buy gear, buy plane tickets”. We get his point but you can’t ski naked. So, to ease the impact on your wallet, right now at countryside.co.uk we’ve dusted some wintery magic on our Patagonia prices so if you really need to replace some worn out (or grown out) warm layers then don’t delay, visit us today to snap up a crisp bargain…then go book that ticket to a winter wonderland!
A comfortable day outside in the woods or the powder, all starts with an effective baselayer. Helly Hansen’s Lifa baselayer lets you feel everything but sweaty, no matter how hard you’re working. The right material for your next-to-skin clothing is the bedrock of your layering system as it works the hardest to keep you dry and therefore comfortable. So, put away your old cotton t-shirt and boxers and bring your performance levels up from the 17th century to the 21st this season! You’ll be blown away with how toasty you’ll feel when you’re still, and how calm you’ll be when things get a little hot under the collar. Visit countryside.co.uk for a right royal collection of 'undies with attitude' from Helly Hensen.

As the nights get a bit chillier, rather than cranking up your central heating why not upgrade to a Patagonia fleece instead? Being warm and comfortable at home is as important as outside. At the end of a hard day - whether it was work or fun - wash off the day’s grime and then relax into the embrace of one of Patagonia’s fleeces. All the Patagonia Better Sweater and Synchilla Snap-T styles are also Fair Trade Certified sewn. That means every purchase sends money back to the factory workers who earn premiums that can be allocated as cash, used for a collective social investment or both. That’s a win for you, them, your utility bill and ultimately the environment. Visit countryside.co.uk to browse our fantastic range - you’ll get another warm glow inside when you see how good our prices are too.
Fjallraven clothing and equipment was born in the mountains and forests of Sweden. The Fjallraven ethos has always been to welcome everything nature brings us and not to conquer it but to enjoy and appreciate it. Before you explore the great outdoors for yourself this autumn visit us at countryside.co.uk and wander through our extensive range of the new season’s timeless designs and incredible build quality from Fjallraven.
The assurance of sound animal welfare inherent in Patagonia’s Traceable Down program is the result of thousands of hours of work by Patagonia executives, designers, material planners, the sourcing department, suppliers and their corporate social responsibility team. It was neither cheap nor easy and Patagonia had to change their strategy and business operations to accomplish it. But building a product that helps you stay warm in good conscience is a legacy of which they are extremely proud and their program is truly market leading in its effort and transparency. So, if you think you’re after just a nice down jacket this autumn, then think again and invest wisely in something from Patagonia’s Traceable Down collection with us at countryside.co.uk.
Why not venture out for a bit of winter hillwalking this year?

It ensures animal welfare and quality are at the heart of each and every down product they make. All Mountain Equipment down is 100% traceable, making theirs an industry-leading standard offering a sustainable choice as well as a practical one for wilder adventures.

One way to keep the baggage weight down for your holiday or your rucksack load under 10kg, is to invest in some Icebreaker. Icebreaker is the definitive merino wool performance clothing brand – much copied but never bettered! Merino wool gives you the benefits of a wicking, naturally breathable, hard-working and soft base layer but - and here’s the good bit - the fibre is naturally anti-bacterial so you can wear it for days (and days… and days) before it gets stinky! Visit us at countryside.co.uk to view our brand new season’s range of Icebreaker base and mid layer clothing. Its versatility is legendary as one top will work to keep you comfortable for hill walking, skiing and the journey home so don’t be sheepish, come and join the flock.
They say “it’s about the journey not the destination” and we all experience our ‘journeys’ in the outdoors differently. You might be the type to log an FKT on the AT* or trounce Kilian Jornet by 15 minutes on the UTMB but equally you might prefer to meander outdoors rather than run. However, your motives are the same: the experience, the sense of accomplishment and some great views! It’s just as important to wear the right clothing too. Patagonia make gear tested by their ambassadors in all extremes so that we mere mortals have a comfortable experience when we’re living the dream too. If you’re struggling to get comfortable in soggy weather, visit us at countryside.co.uk to browse the very latest in new Patagonia clothing – we’ve got the broadest range and the best prices so we’re the perfect destination before your journey.
