About Us

What can be done when so many children are spending less and less time outdoors and more and more time indoors, sitting down?


Children are drawn naturally to earth, water, air and fire. Given the chance and opportunity they will learn and play for hours.


We support getting outside, getting dirty hands, growing things, making things, and generally doing stuff.


That's what can be done about inactivity and narrowing horizons.


And we believe we can all play our part in some way.


Our part is to help the forward thinkers (schools, groups and parents) to bring back balance into the lives of children - to avoid one-sidedness.


Our clothing helps you do it practically, comfortably and safely.



What drives us


We're not just resellers of 'stuff'. We're driven by 2 things: understanding why children need to be outside and understanding what clothing works (based on years of relationships with the manufacturers and suppliers and years of feedback from the change-makers).



Experience counts


We've been supplying schools and groups for 12 years. We've practically helped shape how people look at the benefits to children of being outside. 100 schools (and counting) trust Adventure Togs with their outdoor clothing.


You'll find our knees and elbows in sandpits, muddy pools, in ice and snow and beside the camp fires burning away in the woods all around the UK, 365 days a year.



It's a challenge


We've all got a fight on our hands to protect childhood, to make sure that children don't grow up as passive consumers. The world needs productive, nature aware, social, respectful human beings. You learn this in nature. We're ready to help.



What should I do now?


If you're now ready to choose exactly what you want then please visit our childrens outdoor clothes pages here, or our schoolwear essentials page here. For more information about how we can work with your school or group click here.



“Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning. But for children play is serious learning. Play is really the work of childhood.” Fred Rogers
