    Springtime events at Nordic Outdoor

    By Andrew Ainslie

    The weather has started to turn and with the nights now stretching out for even longer we can feel the arrival of Spring in the air! With the seasons changing we can come out of a long winter hibernation and begin to enjoy the Great Outdoors in our favourite season.

    Spring is a busy time for the staff here at Nordic Outdoor and our calendar is crammed full of great events that we can’t wait for. What we love most about events like these is the opportunity to try your hand at some brand-new activities, and maybe pick up a new hobby.

    A Guide to Spring Jackets

    By John Beattie

    The coming of April and the change of the hour means that Spring has finally arrived. Even if the weather seems to disagree.

    Longer days mean more time to spend out and about in the sun. The weather warming up opens up a host of possibilities for outdoor activities. Let’s not get too carried away though, we’re still in Scotland and the changing of the seasons means very little to our wild and windy weather. The weather can change in an instant meaning you need to be prepared for all eventualities.

    You need a jacket that can protect you from the wind, rain and sleet. Your jacket will also need to be breathable for the occasional sunny spells we experience at this time of year. Such a jacket can be a hard thing to find. Heavy jackets with membranes like Gore-Tex will be uncomfortable in any strenuous circumstances, and a lightweight fleece or hoodie won’t be very useful once the inevitable Spring shower starts.

    Fjallraven Kanken Art Collection

    By Andrew Ainslie

    One of the most iconic Scandinavian designs began life in 1978 when Fjallraven founder Ake Nordin looked to create a simple backpack which would make carrying school gear easier and more comfortable for the population of Sweden. At the time back problems were spreading across Sweden and this simple idea was aimed to tackle this pressing problem in style. Since the first Kanken was released in 1978 the style has grown to become instantly recognisable worldwide and has even been protected by the Svensk Form as a piece of art and a piece of Swedish cultural history.

    For Spring Summer ’19 and as a springboard for the newly formed Arctic Fox Initiative Fjallraven commissioned two Swedish artists to produce special edition Kanken prints which have become the new Art Collection.

    Naimakka Bracelets! They could save your life…

    By John Beattie

    True sustainability as a brand can be achieved in many ways. In previous blogs we have looked at the ways in which many brands achieve this. Be it through recycling or using more ecologically friendly production practices all the brands we stock make an effort to protect our planet. Naimakka are no different. The idea for the brand came from a school project up-scaling old parachute cords to make effectively useless waste products into stylish bracelets with a plethora of potential uses.

    Carrying on from this idea Naimakka have begun to produce stylish paracord bracelets that could save your life someday.

    This isn’t something we say jokingly, we even took the time to list just a few of the wonderful uses of this nifty bit of kit

    The Story of Vicuna Alpaca Socks

    By John Beattie

    The Vicuña brand borrows its name from the wonderfully curious animal which inspired the company’s foundation. The vicuña is a distant cousin of the llama which lives in the high alpine areas of the Andes. Due to the huge fluctuations in temperature in the areas they live in, the vicuña has developed a unique type of wool. Silky, smooth and considerably durable, these qualities have inspired the Vicuña brand to produce some of the most luxurious performance products on the market.

    The Polar Academy 2019

    By Andrew Ainslie

    Here at Nordic Outdoor we love to hear about your adventures and there isn’t a better adventure this year than the 2019 Polar Academy. Founded in 2013 by Craig Mathieson, 2019 will mark the fifth Polar Academy expedition and is the most exciting to date. The core principle of the Polar Academy is identifying ‘invisible’ 14-17 years old secondary school children, crushed by a lack of self-esteem and giving them the chance to redefine their physical and mental limits through what has been described as Europe’s toughest youth training programme.
