    Missus has some Go Outdoors gift cards and for some reason they can't be used online. Brief look on the website brings up a number of unknown brands.

    Any recommendations what to look for as I've never been in one.

    Yes, watch out for the sweetie counter at the checkout - there leads a path to dental caries :D

    They stock a good range of mainstream brands as well at their own. OEX gear seems to get good reviews for the entry level price point. Their kit is functional and does the job.

    Most stores have a large set of sail rails and usually more choice in women's than the mens...
    They started stocking good brands like Salewa that you don't see on a lot of high street chain shops... Some of the kathamandu gear is pretty good.
    Our store is the only place I've been able to try on a columbia outdry coat.

    ALWAYS double, triple check for cheaper rival prices. Their price match is very good.

    Might be an idea to spend your gift card sooner rather than later. I think they are going bust. Our local store was also low on stock for lots of things.

    That's the reason for asking. The nearest store is 2h away, and I may have some business coming up in the city, so I thought I use them up.

    Factor in the fiver for the GO Outdoors card too. Sometimes good value on bits of mainstream stuff. recently some of their Montane stuff was at good prices.

    She has about 40 or 50 quids worth of cards. She also has a Blue Light Card so that should help.

    Get there quick. I fear that as they have recently done the 'go bust and re-open as new company the following day thing' that there may be a reason your vouchers would not work . I sincerely hope not.
