“You can tell a lot about a person by their shoes,” they say. In our opinion, you can tell just as much about a person by their jacket. There are many out there on the market which look nice but, in regards to practicality and function, are pretty much useless. Here at Mountain Leisure Perth we can give you jackets which look good and can perform in conditions - in fact, those are the only sort of jackets we will stock. We believe firmly in function over form, but there’s no reason you can’t get a jacket that does its job and looks the part. We seek out those products and proudly stock them year-round.

Jackets are naturally one of the most expensive products we sell, so getting the right ones in is very important to us. We want your jacket to last you years and give you outstanding value for money. We are not interested in selling jackets that only last a short while and have to be replaced. We have a wonderful range of jackets for both men and women, so have a good browse and email us if you’ve any questions or requests to make - we’ll do our best to accommodate your needs!

Footwear

Footwear is something we have invested particular time and effort researching and testing out in practical situations. We only stock footwear that will be highly functional and comfortable, regardless of what your pursuits are. Because of the physical strain your feet and ankles can endure in highly demanding exercise, we have made sure that we stock footwear that supports your feet and ankles. You need to have appropriate footwear in which you will be comfortable for the entire time you’re wearing them - whether that time is three hours or a full day. We have a range of types, styles and sizes for both men and women, from the brands you trust most, such as Merrell, Meindl, La Sportiva, Scarpa and Zamberlan.

Types of Footwear

  • Walking shoes
  • Rock shoes
  • Walking boots

To enable you to add some extra comfort and support for your feet, we stock a range of insoles. Offering various insole types, all priced differently, we have ones to suit any budget. Have a look and let us know if there’s anything you want to know, whether that’s about boots, sandals or insoles! Our staff know everything there is to know about outdoor footwear.

Tents and Sleeping Bags

We pride ourselves in our array of tents, as they are something any outdoor specialist worth their salt must, well, specialise in! Camping has long been an experience enjoyed by mankind, as it brings us closer to the natural environment and can be a truly enjoyable time for both individuals, families and friends alike. We have tents big and small to ensure that your camping experience is as comfortable as possible for however many are in your party. The functionality of the tent is so important to us as well - everyone here at Mountain Leisure Perth knows what it’s like to spend a night in a substandard tent. It’s ‘character building’, but not an experience any of us would choose to repeat! Rest assured that our range of tents are of the highest quality, promising a dry, draught-free and comfortable night’s sleep wherever you are, in whatever conditions, at whatever time of year. You’ll also need a good sleeping bag, which is why we’ve invested in a good range. Please get in touch if you require any more information, as shopping for a tent online can be difficult. We’ve got all the specifications you’d want to know, so just ring up and ask or drop us a line via email!

Fleeces

Fleeces are the outdoor enthusiast’s best friend. In the depths of winter, they make all the difference as a valuable underlayer, and in the spring and summer they make a nice and comfortable alternative to coats, which is a good choice to have on the drier days of the year when there’s still a bit of a chill. We stock classic-looking fleeces for both men and women, as well as high-tech ones too, so whether you’re after a classic Berghaus fleece or a Rab Shadow Hoodie, we’ve got it! Have a look at our range and fire any questions our way - our staff are exceedingly helpful.

Base Layers

Nothing ensures warmth whilst offering breathability like a top quality base layer. With a range of base layers for both men and women, from innovative brands such as Paramo and Rab, we can make sure that you’re always protected against the chill, whether you’re high up on a mountain, enjoying a hike or out fishing. If you have any questions about our base layers or want any advice or guidance in picking the right one for your needs, don’t hesitate to give us a ring or drop us an email - we’ll get back to you really quickly and answer any question you have!

Shirts

Our range of shirts for men and women that are both stylish and functional. We have a few different designs because we appreciate that everyone has different taste, but rest assured that the shirts we stock are also of superb quality and functionality. It is important to us that we provide clothing that not only looks like it’s for the outdoors, but actually functions how it should. What’s the point in having a shirt with pockets you can’t really utilise properly? Well, we don’t stock shirts like that - only ones that will be of use to you. We have overshirts which can provide a great extra layer, or shirts that are more suited to the summer pursuits. If you have any further questions, regarding the shirt’s thickness - or anything really - just get in touch and we’ll provide the finer details.

T-Shirts

The classic underlayer, a t-shirt will always be an important part of the process of layering up adequately for the conditions. Living in the UK, the chances are you’ll use t-shirts mainly as an underlayer, but every now and then we get some glorious sunshine, as which point you’ll be able to utilise it as a sole layer! Highly technical, our t-shirts provide warmth and good value for money. Have a look and let us know if you need any technical details or anything like that!

Legwear

One area of your outdoor clothing which must not be overlooked is legwear. Many people heavily layer the top half of the body with very little consideration for the lower half! Here at Mountain Leisure Perth we make sure your lower half is correctly equipped too! Our range of legwear from trusted and well-regarded brands - such as Jottnar, Paramo, Sprayway and Rab - is the most functional stuff out there, which is exactly why we stock it. Whatever kind of legwear you need, we can provide, whether that’s breathable, waterproof or windproof, we’ve got it.

Hats

As you will probably know, a lot of heat can be lost through the head, which is why we’ve stocked a range of hats in all different shapes and styles to make sure that doesn’t happen! Whether you need a mountain cap or a beanie hat, we can kit you out. Take a look and if you want to ask us anything then just get in touch - we’re on hand to help.

Gloves

There’s nothing worse than cold hands, is there? When you’re exploring the outdoors in the United Kingdom, there is a very good chance it’s going to be cold most of the time, let’s face it! But you and your hands don’t have to be! The gloves we stock will keep your hands nice and warm whilst allowing you still engage in your outdoor pursuits. We carry different types of gloves in a range of prices so that whatever your needs or your budget, we can help you and your hands out!

Socks and Gaiters

It is essential that your legs and feet stay both warm and dry. We’ve got some highly technical socks that keep your feet breathing as well as warm and dry. Socks are often an overlooked part of the outdoor wardrobe, but they’re very important! You invest a lot of money in your shoes because you want your feet to be supported and protected, so shouldn’t socks be the same? We definitely believe so. Gaiters are a great way to keep your legs and ankles dry and protected whilst outdoors. They will make your legs impervious to the harsh branches and rough thorns you’re likely to brush past. We have a range of gaiters that will suit all budgets, so take a look and don’t hesitate to call or email us with any queries - we aim to respond quickly either way!
