    Guest Blog: Base Layers for Skiing

    By Andrew Ainslie

    In this guest blog we caught up with Doug Campbell from the Edinburgh Ski Club who gave us the rundown on the importance of picking the best base layers for the Ski Season. It's always great to hear more about how our products are being used out in the wild as we pride ourselves on offering the most functional and sustainable in Scandinavian design. Here at Nordic Outdoor we have always been singing the praises of Merino Wool and it's great to hear a seasoned Skiier share our sentiments!

The Amundsen Heroes Turtleneck is one of our favourite items from the last season and our local Action Man Harvey Strachan last weekend put it to the test showcasing it's just as good at the top of a Munro as it is in a cosy Edinburgh pub. Find out how Harvey and the Nordic Outdoor team got on with this iconic piece of knitwear in the latest Nordic Outdoor blog.

    Outdoor Owls Richmond

    By Andrew Ainslie

    As a Scandinavian company, we believe that the outdoors should be a natural part of everyday life. We call it ‘friluftsliv’. This view is ingrained in children from a young age and is very much a constant part of their education growing up. But while Scandinavians have their children outside from an early age, British children are among the most housebound in the world. Last year a poll was conducted that showed that 75% of UK children spent less time outdoors than prison inmates.

    Kamik Boots, Over a Century of Canadian Craftsmanship

    By John Beattie

    Those of you who have spent any time in our shops or read any of our previous blogs will know that we love brands that have a good story behind them. All the brands that we stock must be of the highest quality, but we definitely give bonus points to brands who do things just a little bit differently.

    This can be seen throughout our store from our hand forged Swedish axes to the reindeer hides we buy specially from a Sami reindeer herder. It isn’t just in the most obvious places though. Whilst they may just look like a regular, high quality boot brand, the story behind the Kamik boots and the reason we stock them is far more complex.

    Reindeer Hides

    By Andrew Ainslie

    With Christmas just around the corner the streets and TV screens are soon going to be filled with images of Santa and reindeers and here at Nordic Outdoor we have just received our bi-annual top up of Gealtan Reindeer Hides! These incredible looking and fantastically cosy hides are multi-functional and can be used both in and outdoors and provide an important link to the Scandinavian roots of Nordic Outdoor. While reindeer hides are an incredibly popular choice for home decoration there are also a lot of misconceptions surrounding the ethics and sustainability around this product.
