About Us

Make the most of the outdoors

At Skimania, we have a dedicated team that's committed to helping you get the most out of your time in the great outdoors. And you could say we're qualified to help, because everyone at Skimania knows a thing or two about skiing, walking, the great outdoors and living under fabric.

For example we don't get a traditional works do, like a Christmas dinner. No instead, everyone (be it staff in warehousing, sales, customer support or management) gets long weekends away walking, camping and even skiing (free!), a chance to use and test everything from jackets, socks and gloves to tents, sleeping bags and mattresses.

Gear that works

As a result we know that the gear we sell works and we know, first hand, that the products contained in our web pages will do everything they claim to and at the best possible prices.

You see, not only do we have the benefit of years in the outdoor industry; we also buy and sell massive volumes of skiing, walking and camping gear. That means we can buy equipment at ultra-low prices, offering savings that we pass on to you.

Suppliers you can trust

We have partnerships with some of the best suppliers around. Doubtless, Helly Hansen, Trespass, Montane, Bolle, Gelert, Campingaz, Craghoppers or Regatta will need little introduction. Suffice it to say that we consider them all to offer the highest quality to lowest cost ratio available anywhere. Or to put it another way: The best possible gear at the lowest possible prices!

Putting the customer first

But it doesn't end there. Whilst we are one of the Internet's largest outdoor etailers, we have lots of experience retailing outdoor gear from shops in the Lake District and Yorkshire. That's helped us a lot in finding out what our customers want and how we can best keep them happy.

So whilst we're on the Internet, we shouldn't be seen as an impersonal electronic entity. Far from it! In fact, you'll find out telephone operators friendly, efficient and happy to answer queries, help you with placing your order and advise you on what's the best possible product for your needs.

Peace of mind

When you place your order, you can be safe in the knowledge that our SSL data encryption is as secure as there is. On the back of it we have one of the most sophisticated automated order processing systems around, allowing you to track every stage of your order and, allowing us to maintain the greatest rate of next day deliveries anywhere in the industry.

A great package

What it all adds up to is a service that, as our thousands of customers will already testify, is quite simply the best for value, quality and for your skiing, walking or camping trip wherever you may venture!
