New Merrell and Ksb Sandals Now In

We have just had another big delivery of sandals into stock. This is the time of year to kick off your walking boots and get some air to your feet.

The technology of walking sandals has changed a lot since Ghandi kicked on his flip flops. The Merrell Chameleon sandals for instance have a lot of the features in the soles as a pair of approach shoes. The soles on many of the Merrell Chameleons are Vibram which is the same rubber as on the approach shoes and walking boots. This gives good traction and grip and the EVA mid soles offer good shock absorbancy for when you walk long distances. The Merrell Chameleon Convertible Sandal also has a removable strap at the back so they turn into a slip on sandal.
Most of the walking sandals have a anti-microbial footbed as well to stop them getting smelly. If they do start to get a bit whiffy, don't worry, we sell product from Nikwax called Nikwax Sandal Wash which does exactly what is says on the bottle.

The range now includes all the X range including the original Suunto Vector in all colours, the T1/T3/T4 training range and also the Gps watch the X10.

Full Montane Hot '09 range online now!

Having recently worn my fingers to the bone during the endeavour, I'm please to announce that gear-zone now has the full
Montane Hot '09 range online...

...we stock many items all year anyway, but fear not...
...if Montane have it in stock, we'll get it in for you!

Hopefully those of you who know Montane's gear will find this a fantastic opportunity to pick up those hard to find bits that no-one ever sells, and all at a discount from RRP!

For those who don't know Montane...they're a small UK based company staffed by outdoor enthusiasts, specialising in lightweight, highly breathable (and I mean as breathable as it gets!) and durable clothing for performance sports like running, cycling, trekking, mountaineering or climbing. (although they're fine for around town or walking the dog too!)

Once you've seen what Montane's ethos does for your comfort and backpack weight you'll wonder how you ever managed with other manufacturer's 'lightweight' stuff!
