Our Outdoor Brand of the Year shortlist, compiled by Outdoors Magic.



A huge range of hill and mountain kit from jackets to boots and packs. Innovates with ground-breaking technologies such as water-resistant Hydrodown. 


The Brasher brand is about to disappear, but its leather boots will carry on under Berghaus. It’s a bittersweet end to 36-odd years of British walking footwear. 


As well as its Nikwax Analogy waterproof fabric system, Paramo has upped its game with more modern styles and is committed to ethical manufacture. 


A range of packs, from urban commuting to backcountry skiing, marked by a combination of impressive quality and innovation.



Reasonably priced, sturdy tents, as supplied to the Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme. The inflatable AirBeam technology allows quick and easy pitching of large family and car-camping tents.
