It’s another summer of ‘staycations’ and here at Farlows we have a fantastic selection of items designed to help you make the most of your outdoor adventures.

Whether you’re camping, fishing or hiking into the hills, we have some great kit that should feature in your packing checklist, from items designed to complement day-pack hikers to those big pieces of equipment for the most serious adventurers!

2. Horizon Tactical Merino Boot Socks

Experienced outdoor enthusiasts know that a quality pair of socks is just as crucial as a quality hiking boot. The Horizon Tactical Merino Boot Socks are some of the comfiest socks we’ve ever tried, offering incredible comfort and fit, as well as Merino wool’s natural anti-odour properties. Grab a few pairs of these for your next trip and your feet will thank you!
