Gear Guide

The gateway to adventure

Rough Gear has been running for almost 8 years now and has certainly come a long way since its early days. After a few years, we opened our first shop in the market town of Ringwood, in the heart of the New Forest. We quickly outgrew this shop and moved to a new premises in the town centre.

Nowadays, we are focussing our efforts of improving our website, and have recently moved to a new premises, just outside Plymouth. We have some big plans for 2014, with some exciting developments due for later in the year.

We would like to thank our customer’s support over the last 6 years of trading in Ringwood – without you all, we wouldn’t have made it and we hope that we will be able to return to the New Forest in the future.

Our secure and popular online shop stocks a wide range of quality clothing, these include brands such as: Rab, Norrøna, Haglöfs, Marmot, Smartwool and Mountain Equipment.

We also have a brilliant range of rucksacks from Deuter, Osprey and Lowe Alpine, so whether you’re off on a once in a lifetime trip trekking in the Himalayas, walking the South West Coast Path, or enjoying the outdoors at the weekend, we are sure that you’ll find what you need.

You’ll also find an extensive range of sleeping bags, sleeping mats and other equipment. Our new collection of high quality down sleeping bags from Rab will keep you warm, wherever you choose to set up camp. When you partner this with a down or synthetic filled Exped sleeping mat, available in a a wide range of styles and sizes – you’re guaranteed a good nights sleep!

Our specialist footwear includes: walking boots, approach shoes, and outdoor sandals from the likes of: Meindl, Keen and Teva. We’re also authorised stockists for Superfeet Orthotic Insoles, plus there’s an extensive range of super comfy Merino socks from Smartwool.
