If you're out in cold conditions, the best way of keeping warm is to wear layers. Start off with a wicking base layer to draw perspiration from your skin (or you will get damp and cold). Next wear several thin layers (fleeces are great) to trap air and insulate you from the cold. Top it off with a warm, waterproof jacket (check out the Waterproofs Guide) and you should stay cosy in the outdoors.

If it's warmer, or even hot where you may end up, their shorts are really hard wearing and they have a very large range of t-shirts, shirts and sunglasses…so there's no excuse to stay indoors, whatever the weather! get out and about and enjoy your holiday. See all the outdoor gear for men

Camping Gear

Camping Gear and TentsYou will find you have space to take everything you could possibly need to make your camping holiday comfortable. Even if you're not going with the kids, the 'glamping' holiday is becoming ever more popular for campers who want a bit of luxury. Why not kit out your tent to make it a real home-from-home? See all camping gear

Outdoor Gear have a range of gear to make your trip as basic or deluxe as you could want; take chairs so you don't have to sit on the grass, a kitchen unit to make storing and preparing food easy, and why not take an airbed to ensure a restful night? Check out the Family Camping Kitlist for more ideas.

A really great idea are the tent lights which can be positioned all around your canvas home, no more fumbling around in the dark looking for your toothbrush! The Ring Pack of 3 LEDs and the Vango Battery Powered Light Disc both have fantastic reviews and are really bright without getting hot (and the batteries last for ages!).

The most important piece of kit you take though, will of course be your tent. If you're going for luxury, or want plenty of space for the family, pick a large tent with several rooms. You'll have space to stand up and a real home to escape to if it starts to rain! The Vango Airbeams are really popular with family campers as you don't even need poles! Have a look at the Tent Guide for great advice on putting up and using tents.

Outdoor Gear stock a fantastic range of tents in this department. Whether you're off to a festival or family glamping, completing your DofE or lightweight camping, you'll find the perfect tent in these pages.

The tents come in all shapes and sizes and it's a good idea to have in mind how big you need your tent to be and where you'll use it. Do you want a tent with standing room? Are you looking at tents for one person or a whole family? Start browsing now for your new home-from-home. See all of the camping gear

Footwear for your holiday

Footwear for the outdoors from Outdoor GearThink about the kind of walking you will be doing. If you're spending a weekend in a muddy field at a festival, then wellies will probably be your best bet, if you're doing some light walking in a hot country, consider sandals, or if you'll be using your shoes at work and need steel toecaps have a look at the Magnums or Dr. Martins. See all footwear

Even if you want some footwear for rambling in the countryside, hills or mountains, there are some options to consider. Think about the terrain you will be encountering, will it be rocky and uneven? If so, a boot with plenty of ankle support is recommended. Do you just want footwear to keep your feet comfy when walking in the park? Then a walking shoe will probably be sufficient, many of ours are waterproof for when you're chasing after the dog through wet grass!

Have a look at the Walking Boot Guide for more advice.

In the winter, ordinary wellies are quite often just not warm enough. Pick a warm snow boot or insulated wellington boot to make sure you don't get cold in those chilly months. The ground can also become perilously slippery with snow and ice. Traction aids are becoming ever more popular with people who want to use the shoes they've already got, as these studs can be stretched easily over your own shoes to make sure that you don't lose your grip!

Outdoor Gear for Walking

Consider the weather conditions, remembering it is always best to plan for the worst!

Clothing and footwear for walkingWearing the right footwear for walking is essential. Walking shoes and boots have excellent grip for uneven or slippery terrain and are designed to give your ankles sufficient support. A proper fitting shoe or boot will also reduce the risk of blisters, which can make even the loveliest walk unpleasant! Have a look at the Walking Boot Guide for more advice.

Walking socks will also reduce the risk of blisters, as well as making sure your feet remain comfortable. They are specifically designed to be extra thick on the heel and toe and to not slip down inside your footwear. If you are prone to blisters, you may want to consider 1000 mile socks, with a double membrane to stop your sock from rubbing your skin.

Trousers or shorts that are designed for walking are best because they will be hard wearing and comfortable. You could think about buying versatile zip-off trousers which can be converted to shorts, especially useful if you can't be sure of the weather.

If the weather is wet you will need a waterproof jacket for your walk. It can rain almost anywhere, in any season, so do not travel without at least a lightweaght waterproof. There are a range of options here from lightweight packaway jackets for casual use, to more technical jackets which are more hardwearing and breathable but make sure that your jacket fits with enough room underneath for a few layers to keep warm. Waterproof trousers and gaiters are also a great idea to keep your lower half dry. Have a look at our Waterproofs Guide for more information.

Walking Poles are becoming ever more popular and can be really useful, particularly over uneven terrain or down hill. Although many people use one, it is advised that you use a pair for maximum stability.

Finally, remember to plan your route and even if you use a GPS, it's a good idea to take a map and compass as well... just in case. See all the walking gear
