About Us

About Us

The Gearshack is an outdoor equipment shop based in Lewes, East Sussex. We are associated with The Trekking Company, the region's largest independent outdoor pursuits company, and our outdoor advice is informed by our experience with organising outdoor activities since 1989.

TrekCo have been running trips since 1989 to The Lake District, Peak District, Wales, the French Alps, Pyrenees, Nepal, New Zealand, Utah, and California. Experience of activities in these locations means we're able to offer great advice at the Gearshack as to what actually works in the real world of the outdoors - not just what's shiny this week! 

We've been teaching via ferrata and canyoning in France since 1991, and our experts include holders of the Mountain Instructor Award and International Mountain Leader Award - as well as keeping up with the latest developments in the outdoor industry. We're here to help!
