We've been going 10 years since 2005, hopefully transforming the scene for women's outdoor clothing here in the UK. Gear for Girls was the first and remains the only Outdoor Shop in Britain to concentrate purely on finding the best walking, running, climbing and skiing clothing for women available. Hopefully having an outdoor store dedicated purely to women has helped change the attitudes of brands towards women's needs for outdoor clothing. We certainly think so. It's no longer adequate to provide a small range of non technical women's walking & climbing clothing in a dark and dingy corner of your average outdoor shop. We want to be taken seriously! Yes we want to look good but we also want technical products that can stand up to challenging activities.
Gear for Girls is staffed by active runners, walkers, cyclists, climbers and skiers of all different standards. There's always someone to advise you because we also use the products we sell. The range is chosen by women, used by our staff in all weathers (and we certainly get all weathers living here just south of the Scottish Border) and sold to and by women. That's what makes us unique.
