Basecamp is a shop that sells outdoor kit. The best outdoor kit. There is no cheap flimsy that’ll do stuff here. This is quality gear. You want a waterproof- here you’ll get the very best. What sets this shop apart is Jim. Jim, the owner has worked in and around the globe in very rural, cold, wet , dangerous locations and as such has tested all the gear there is on offer. Mountain equipment, montane, sorrel and Keen are but some of the brands represented at basecamp. Fitting of this gear is also something basecamp offer. Experts my no mistakes. Pop in to see what’s on offer. You won’t be dissapointed
