About Us

The Outdoor Urbanites are story-sellers. We write meet-the-maker style blogs & product reviews about brands you know and those you don't, providing inspiration for your next outdoor adventure.

We know outdoor clothing and outdoor stores can be confusing and dare I say - a bit boring. There's technical jargon and product choice is based on functionality rather than style or something you love. The products can be pretty expensive too, especially if you only wear them a few times a year.

So, we've done the hard work for you. We've hand-picked brands and products based on criteria such as; style, function, desirability, kindness and more. Our selection is based on what we love, that really shake the tree and that's important to us. We get into the specifics to de-mystify the jargon, meet the designers and product developers who get out of bed every day to make great gear.
