Our guide to Cotswold Outdoor 2021 Black Friday sale

One of the UK's big outdoor retailers is taking part in the Black Friday action. We are keeping an eye on the best Cotswold Outdoor deals here.

Hikers crossing a stream in Scotland

by Chris Williams |

Cotswold Outdoor has been around in the UK for a few decades now and has grown into one of the biggest outdoor retailers in the country, catering for camping families to greenhorn hikers to experienced trekkers. As such, its product catalogue is vast.

An important aspect to brands these days is sustainability and Cotswold Outdoor has been working to improve itself in that department over the last several years and has set itself goals to achieve by the end of 2022, such as becoming carbon zero (read more here). It has also launched a gear recycling programme and it's Black Friday Climate Project.

Good outdoor gear is not cheap because a lot of time and effort goes into the design. But this time of year gives an opportunity to land yourself some good deals.

While Black Friday weekend is over, there are still some great deals to be had at Cotswold Outdoor.

Just so you know, whilst we may receive a commission or other compensation from the links on this page, we never allow this to influence product selections.

What is Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2021?

Purely an excuse for a sale and deals. It's an American creation taking place after Thanksgiving, but was very quickly capitalised on by companies elsewhere, including in the UK. Cyber Monday is just the Monday after Black Friday - deals continued, essentially.
