Many more people now have the best intentions when it comes to seeking a healthier lifestyle, but this doesn’t always come in the form of gym visits or diets. The British public has fallen in love with outdoor activities and walking, hiking and cycling are by far the most popular. This has had an effect on the outdoor wear market with sales as well as participation on the increase so online voucher code site My Favourite Voucher Codes has taken a look at how and where customers can save money buying their essential outdoor wear online.
The outdoor product category is now a significant sector in UK retail – in 2013, outdoor clothing sales totalled £889 million, with outdoor equipment and outdoor footwear making up smaller, but still substantial sales totals (£309 million and £235 million respectively). The reason for this popularity could well be the increase in people taking holidays within the UK, with staycations experiencing an 18% increase on year.
For these activities, specialist outdoor wear is required, and it is generally acknowledged that the best quality items and garments don’t come cheap. So where can customers get the best deal online? My Favourite Vouchers Codes has examined the prices of three of its most popular outdoor wear retailers in the form of a specially selected basket of products. Taking into account current price reductions and valid voucher codes, they’ve compared the prices of identical or similar quality alternatives for all members of the family to see where the value lies right now…
