    I bought a pair of Salomon Comet 3D GTX walking boots from Gaynor Sports 2 years ago. They have not been the best - letting water in and the heel leaking and squelching as I walked. I took them back t...  more »

    Great sale prices and faultless online service. Delivery dead on time as described, just in time for our holidays! Would definitely use again.  more »

    This is not the best shop for outdoor kit. It does however sell a good variety of good kit at decent prices. If you need to stock up on basics like tracksters, fleeces or t-shirts then Gaynors is the ...  more »

  • Good prices but wouldn't buy online again because of their use of FedEx as their carrier. Paid for next day delivery but items returned to depot. They will only deliver in working hours so I've got to leave work early and make a 55 mile round trip to collect items in time. Please consider using a courier who can deliver to a local store e.g Co-op Premier etc.
  • Got good prices on waterproofs (which I could have got elsewhere too)but overall online shopping experience was pretty poor. Obligatory delivery charge of £4.99 for next working day delivery by FedEx but no facility to select a delivery slot. Despatch confirmation email contained the wrong tracking number, which made me think the whole order had gone astray. Phoned FedEx in the late afternoon who was unable to shed any light on the matter. Had to phone Gaynor Sports customer services the next day when delivery had not arrived only to find that the tracking number was wrong and that our delivery had been signed for by our neighbour with no note placed in our post box to let us know where it had gone to. When I asked for the delivery charge to be refunded, I was told that this will have to be discussed with a manager who will contact me. Four days later nothing has happened so I assume there will be no refund despite a catalogue of errors and inconvenience caused. Will not be ordering from them again and I would advise you to steer clear.
  • Good selection of walking and hiking goods at reasonable prices. Always goods on offer. Friendly staff. Good customer service
  • Good variety of clothes. Shop layout takes a little getting used to and there is 2 entrances, the little one at the back is to the Barton basement.
  • Cavalcade of everything outdoors. I dare you to leave empty handed.
