Born from a desire to combine our love of the mountains with gainful employment in 1997 we created Facewest. At our core we're outdoor people who really care about providing the best kit for people like us. We've been skiing, climbing, paragliding, running and hiking for decades. Read about our journey from ski bums selling transceivers and shovels out of a Fiat Panda in the French alps to an independent specialist outdoor retailer here.
We run an outdoor shop for kit monsters just like us. We select only equipment that we would want to use ourselves from established and trusted brands. Value for money is always important but performance and reliability are paramount, nobody wants to have their adventure compromised by equipment failure. We love kit, not just the bright shiny "newness" of it but the little features and details that make a great product stand out from the crowd. If you want to talk to us then we are available by phone or email both before you purchase and after. We have an awesome customer service record which you can see on the independent review site Trustpilot.
When you shop with us you get 10% of the value as a discount off your next purchase. We hope that once you have shopped with us we will be able to help you with the gear you need for years to come.
