Now open 7 days a week!

We are once again open Monday to Saturday 9:30 to 18:00 and Sunday 10:00 to 16:00.

For general shopping we will be limiting the amount of customers at any one time so please give yourself plenty of time for your visit. We are operating a booking system for fitting services. So for example if you need new shoes or boots then please fill in the booking sheet at the link below, but if you know that you just need another pair of Zamberlan Ultralite size 45 then just come along to pick them up, or ideally let us know you're coming and we will secure a pair for you.

If you want to visit Up and Under to benefit from our reknowned fitting service on products such as footwear, harnesses, backpacks, wetsuits or PFD's then please click "BOOK A FITTING".


The recent local restrictions followed by the Fire Break has had significant effects on our operations so we would like to give a massive Thank You to everyone who has supported us during lockdown both with positive comments on our social media and emails and by ordering from us online and over the phone. You really have been a huge help.

Rob Smith - Offa's Dyke In One Sitting - A new unsupported FKT

I set out from the official start (or end) of the Offa’s Dyke National Trail in Prestatyn with the intention of running (jogging, hiking and a lot of hobbling) – the 177 miles to the other end of the trail at Sedbury Cliffs, just outside Chepstow. I did finally get there, just over 3 days later, setting what is, for now, a fastest known time for a self-supported completion of the trail.
