Product descriptions simply aren’t enough when searching for quality outdoor gear. Before “Adding to Basket” we usually need a little more convincing, but honest reviews can be hard to find. That’s why we built our very own trusted platform.

Black Diamond Spot 350 On Head

Founded in 2020, Adventure Pending is dedicated to sharing the best, outdoor and adventure gear available in the UK. We review gear in real-world settings taking performance, sustainability and affordability into account.

Looking for recommendations ahead of your next trip? Check out our buying guides, product reviews or get in touch – we’re always happy to help.
