In Ballymena many folks enjoy outdoor activities or need to spend time in the great outdoors with our jobs or even just taking the dog for an adventure! At this time of year in particular we need suitable clothing, footwear & accessories to help keep us dry & warm. Outdoor Adventure Ballymena can supply all you’ll need to brave the elements. Situated on Church Street, near the bandstand, Outdoor Adventure have been supplying outdoor clothing, footwear, camping equipment and much more to their customers from Ballymena and beyond for many years now. Having just recently expanded their premises to hold more stock, Roy and the team will be happy to offer advice and get you kitted out with all the gear you need no matter what outdoor activity you’re involved in.

Jackets, fleeces, trousers, footwear & accessories from leading brand names like The North Face, Jack Wolfskin, Merrell and others are arriving daily. We spoke to Roy, owner of Outdoor Adventure, about what is important when making decisions about what to buy. He said, “Let’s start with the jacket. Obviously it needs to be waterproof and windproof to keep the rain out & help keep us warm and it’s also more comfortable to wear if it’s also breathable & lightweight. The same applies to outdoor boots and shoes – choose footwear that’s waterproof & lightweight. For those needing to wear Wellingtons for good parts of the day we now have a range of super lightweight Wellingtons in stock called Lite Air, and of course equally important as the shoe or boot are the socks! Here at Outdoor Adventure we stock a massive range of socks from Newtownards manufacturer Bridgedale Socks. We have socks suitable for all users, both mens and ladies. Starting with the base layer light sock through to the Summit range, a heavyweight knee length sock, ideal for farmers or workers wearing Wellingtons all day as these socks have a ‘grip’ built in which will help with the issue of the socks riding down your foot. They have also extra cushioning at the heel & toes. Choosing the proper accessories for being out and about at this time of year is sensible too.”

Outdoor Adventure Ballymena can supply you with gloves from Lowe Alpine, Sealskinz, Rab and others including winter mittens, sports gloves, activity gloves and lots of good thermal gloves to keep the pinkies warm when you’re outside. Be trendy as well as warm with a hat or beanie from one of the top outdoor clothing brands. Some other accessories which could be helpful include neck-warmers, walking sticks, rucksacks & day bags as well as hand & head torches for the darker days. Read more about Wellington Boots here and Walking in Ballymena here.
