When it comes to selecting an insulated jacket it makes sense to have a look how insulation it works and with just a basic grasp of the essential principles you'll be able to make sense of the bewildering array of fill powers and fillings that face you.

In an age where children spend more time roaming their screens than the outside – over 50 per cent of parents say their children have no outdoor skills, according to new research from Vauxhall Motors.

Autumn, when the light begins to fade earlier and a chill starts to fill the air. Not only the lowering of the temperature but that chilling feeling that summer is gone and all you’re left with is the memories of dusty trails, evening rides and the need for sun cream.

It was the run-up to Sheffield Adventure Film Festival and I was going through the annual struggle of how to fit everything in one vehicle for a week of mixing meetings with getting outdoors and culminating in another ShAFF kit sale when Vauxhall approached us with a review offer.

In a candid climbing video, international rock climber Pete Whittaker has spoken out on the importance of nature and outdoor spaces, and the need to protect them from fracking.

Tickets are now on sale for 22nd Kendal Mountain Festival, the largest gathering of the outdoor community in the UK celebrating the mountains, wilderness, and their cultures. This year’s speaker programme is packed with tales of adventure shared by some of the world’s most fascinating and entertaining athletes and explorers.

Hundreds of young people from a school in eastern England are enjoying new experiences in the outdoors thanks to the award of an #itsgreatoutthere grant.
