I can't believe I didn't discover the stock Ski & Trek offers from Dare2b on an earlier trip. The high-quality products - including jackets, trousers, fleece jackets, base layers and accessories - made by the Manchester based company, established in 2000, feature the most effective technologies and materials to keep you warm and dry.

    I never realised the amount of thought that went into the gear you wear on skiing, hiking and cycling trips. I always figured I would be okay to just layer up the items that I already owned – oh how wrong I was! I might have been warm but when the rain started I was left looking like a drowned rat because the clothes I had on weren’t quick drying or water resistant.

    I ended up cutting my trip short and when I got home I vowed to find more suitable outdoor gear. I discovered Ski & Trek and explained all my needs to one of the experts via the live chat function who suggested that I should take a look at the stock on offer from the brand. 

    This selection of outdoor gear is suitable for men, women and children of all ages, so whether you're on a family trip or enjoying the outdoors with your friends, you’ll be able to kit everyone out with Dare2b gear.
