Waterproof Suit – Featured Product – October 2013

Waterproof Suit in MultiCam as featured product NewsWe’ve added a new ‘Feature Product’ page to focus our newest or best products. Our first feature product is this high end MultiCam Waterproof Suit. This breathable military jacket & trousers is perfect for outdoor work or activities. There’s nothing worse than being outside and feeling damp under so called ‘waterproofs’. The combination of the robust material, it’s breathability, taped seams and the design of the clothing all help to give a great experience. Be comfortable when outside and concentrate on the task in hand rather than worry about discomfort from a cheap waterproof suit. This waterproof suit is ideal for military personnel, air cadets, army cadets, combined cadet force, scouts, fishing, hunting, government agencies and forestry.

“Spend a little more buying this waterproof suit and you’ll solve all your problems. Job done. Peace of mind. Quality, long lasting outdoor gear. Highly recommended.” (Director Richard Harrison)

New Website – April 2013

Welcome to our brand new website. We wanted a cleaner look and feel to the site which I do think we have achieved. We strive to be ahead of the curve so we’ve updated our business to ensure we are fully compatible with mobile device technology. Many of our customers are now buying directly from their smartphone or tablet within a couple of minutes of thinking about buying a product which is great news.

News – Snow Shovels – September 2010

Winter driving can be pleasurable if you are well prepared for the possibility of getting stuck in snow or perhaps being stuck out overnight following a breakdown or an accident. It can be a nightmare if you are not prepared!

We also have new tow ropes now in stock and we will be putting them up for sale in the car accessory section shortly. We will also be listing windscreen covers to stop the frost slowing you down in the mornings. Every car should have at least a warm blanket in case of a breakdown. Drive safely this winter.
