Aldi have a new functional and affordable outdoor range launching today and, having had a sneak peek, I can tell you that it's well worth checking out. As a fan (or maybe addict would be a better word ?!) of geocaching, I'm out in all weathers so I was keen to see what was on offer.
Highlights from the range include a fashionable and practical Parka Jacket (£29.99), sturdy walking boots (£19.99), a warm structured fleece (£9.99) and a handy 17 litre outdoor backpack (£5.99). Yes, you did read those prices right !
They kindly sent me one of the parkas and I love it - so much so, in fact, that I'm wearing it all the time, for going to work and general day-to-day wear as well as getting out in the rain on long walks and geocaching adventures. It's really comfortable, very warm and I love the deep closed pockets (handy for stashing pens, paper, the GPS and a few treasures to exchange in the caches).
I also love the soft snuggly faux fur trim on the hood and the sturdy zip that closes right up to nose-height, if you so desire (great when it's raining !) I hadn't noticed that the hood is detachable, which may be handy in the springtime - but for now, it's staying firmly on as it's been keeping me dry and warm at the bus stop !
The parka is just one of the products on offer though - here is the complete list :
