You do get what you pay for. Everything is cheap but it's not good quality. Most things work as they are intended but would only last one season
Helpful budget range of travelling things

Really good store. Huge selection of outdoor and sports stuff - I could spend hours just browsing. There is a nice outdoor area where they showcase a huge range of tents and inside is massive with areas of the store broken down into different sports e.g climbing, riding, fishing, biking and obviously hiking boots and clothing. The staff are always very helpful. To get the best prices you need to have a membership card which costs £5 a year - it's worth it if you shop here - but you can find equal or better pricing online... But that's not as much fun as coming here for a browse around.
If you go camping, hiking , mountaineering or just mucking about in the countryside then this is the place for you. A massive range of products from tents to bbqs, to camping tables and walking shoes and boots, and just about everything in between. If it's a tent your looking for, they have their full range outside on astro turf, already assembled, so you can see what your buying and try it for size. It takes the guess work out of the equation, so that you go home with the one that's right for you. We needed some help with our purchase and found the staff to be very helpful. would recommend. ps if you find this review helpful, please give it a 👍

Just returned from Taunton Leisure, Bristol, having bought new walking boots. I have been all over Bristol looking for good advice and service and very nearly gave up. TL gave me just what I needed; old fashioned great customer service, experienced and knowledgeable. No rush or pressure and a proper confidence-inspiring fitting. Don't go anywhere else!!
Friendly, knowledgeable staff who genuinely take an interest and the time to make sure you get the gear that's right for you. The shop came highly recommended by my dad, so we popped in to visit over Christmas and got new hiking boots. Was very impressed and would definitely come again.

Went here today to get my son kitted out for DofE and a volunteer project abroad. We got 95% of everything we needed. All the important stuff. Very knowledgeable and friendly people. Knew precisely what we needed AND what we didn't! No pushy sales. Sorted us out in no time and at excellent prices. Plus a 10% off card. Quality products. Highly recommend. My son is also recommending them to his friends.
Amazing shop for Airsoft gear you get 2nd hand military outfits and masks as well. You have a small selection of a few Airsoft handguns, It's a good place to got if you done want to shop online and don't have to much money to spend on gear. Of course there is a lot of camping stuff as well but I can't give opinion of that because I didn't go there for that.

Best staff! Can't speak for all CO staff, but went in to look for a replacement for my 10+ yr old Salomon walking boots and Joe helped me find a pair with a great fit. He was super patient and intent on finding a great boot that worked for what I needed it for, and was a fountain of knowledge of all things footwear related which helped me find a great shoe. Joe was an absolute pleasure to deal with - if more people like him worked in retail, fewer people would be driven to shopping online. Great customer experience - thank you Joe!
Great selection of kit, friendly staff. Kit here is always updated, and is top quality brands (Osprey, Mountain Equipment, Rab etc). Good to visit before any adventure, from DofE to Gap Years to mountaineering. Discounts for members of local rock climbing clubs, outdoor groups and just about everyone in between. Price match here is also very handy, given the warranty the shop provide with their sales. My go-to outdoor shop.
