After a slight hiatus Outdoor Enthusiasts is back. The site has been updated to a new mobile friendly theme with a slight restructure. Old product previews and blog posts have been migrated over, updates will be made to the old product reviews while adding new product reviews.
This process will be an evolution so there are still a number of changes yet to go live and slight design improvements – the main one being mobile friendly being complete.
After more than a year on the road backpacking around the world we’re back and ready to start-up the site again. It’s been an amazing year visiting 14 countries over in 3 continents. 100’s of hours on buses, boats, planes etc.
We’ve now got some extra experience in outdoor clothing / travel clothing and gear. So stay tuned for more blogs and reviews!
There’s only till the end of the day to beat the VAT increase. As of midnight tonight VAT increases by 2.5% to 20%, you have till the end of the day to buy at the current rate of 17.5% which can be a fair chunk of money when buying expensive items.
If your out at the shops you’ll only have a few more hours to grab a bargin, but online you’ll have all the way until midnight tonight to pay at the lower rater.
