We know that getting your kit and clothing right as you head into the mountains can be a complicated process. With so many options and brands, it can be quite daunting. That’s why we’ve partnered with Trekitt Mountain Sports (www.trekitt.co.uk), based in Hereford, to give you the best possible choice and service. What’s more, once you’ve booked your Grand Adventure you will receive an exclusive 10% off Trekitt’s already competitive web prices. How does it work?
Just like any of our partners, from conservation projects to local trekking guides, we only work with those that we know, trust and who share our core values. Independently owned, family run and driven by a passion to get people out into the mountains and wild places, Trekitt are natural partners for us.
All their staff from the shop floor to management are active hill-walkers, mountaineers, mountain bikers and climbers, so well placed to give good and honest advice on the kit and clothing they use.
Trekitt work closely with the leading clothing and equipment brands, so we’ll be tapping into this knowledge to make sure our kit lists and recommendations are up-to-date with the latest technologies and gadgetry.
Not sure which piece of kit will be best for your adventure? Head over to the Trekitt Youtube channel for expert kit reviews and advice, alternatively pay them a visit to their Hereford Shop.
Trekitt Background – What they say
Established in Abergavenny at the foot of the Black Mountains in 1986, Trekitt is family owned and run. The thing that continues to drive and inspire us is our passion for the mountains and wild places and being able to share our experiences and adventures with our customers. We do this because we love doing it; and because the independent outdoor industry remains one of those rare places where the people and their passions matter much more than meeting shareholder expectations or corporate growth forecasts.
Trekitt strives to supply the best quality kit from the best brands for walkers, mountaineers, climbers and travellers so you can be assured of its performance whatever your adventure. We carefully select our range to provide kit that is fit for purpose, high performance, and as gear freaks ourselves, is the sort of stuff that excites us and we would buy personally.
Our aim is to hold excellent stock levels of the kit we have selected; so, the stock level you see on our website is the actual stock that we hold in our dedicated warehouse (and the shop) in Hereford. All orders are processed in the warehouse by our own processing team. We also have a dedicated Customer Support team who can answer your questions and queries or even run around and measure clothing so you can be sure of the correct fit.
Our normal operating hours are Monday to Saturday from 09:00 – 17:30, we are closed on Sundays and Bank Holidays because we value our free time and want to keep it that way. If you have any questions about your requirements, or just want to talk to a fellow enthusiast about kit, give us a call, send us an email, or go on “live chat” online.
Over the years we have forged strong links with like-minded organisations and we strongly believe in supporting those who support others. Both Paul and Mark have been active members of Longtown Mountain Rescue Team and Trekitt is proud to be the main sponsor of their annual fundraising event, the “Big Black Mountain Challenge”.
