Are you something to do with Forest Schools?
Adventure Togs have been around for more than 12 years and regularly supply outdoor clothing to Forest Schools. We support the Forest Schools philosophy of education.
It's a Scandinavian-based idea that recognises the importance of children’s contact with nature, and encourages kids to learn outdoors for a part of the school day. So, you can see the connection - all of that is only possible with the right clothes.
(in the same way we're connected to Waldorf or Steiner schools, Montessori schools and any approach that takes holistic education seriously)
Where are you?
We're in Port Talbot in South Wales and we're all local people working here. You've probably heard of Port Talbot because it's the Welsh home of Tata steel.
How long does my order take?
We usually ship within 24-48 hours.

Can we phone you?
Of course. Tel: 01639 689183. If it's a larger order you probably want to talk about your needs, age groups, budget, funding streams and timetables etc.
What about cheaper outdoor clothing?
For schools and groups it's hard to find a supplier that differentiates between family clothing that's suitable for the weekend, and clothing fit for school and group purposes. Cheaper clothing is generally only suitable for occasional use. We supply schools and groups.
Can you send a fabric sample?
Yes. (To save you time most schools, leaders and groups know that with our experience we only source and offer to you the best clothing for the job and your budget).
What's the practical difference between suits and sets?
All in one suits and sets are the best of both worlds. Snug and dry they give your children head to ankle, protection from the wind, rain and winter cold:
All in One Suits
With adult help suits can be the quickest thing to get on and off. Often a more cost effective option for younger children.
Jacket & Trousers Sets
Sets are easier for children to put on independently and quick to remove for toilet stops.
Whichever you choose the clothes underneath are likely to spend less time in the washing machine. This makes them perfect for outdoor learning and play.
Do you recommend a particular colour?
Our experience is that most schools and groups want clothing that the children can easily put on and take off themselves. We recommend one colour per size. This means the children know the colour they wear and it helps you sort the clothing too.
Can my school speak to you about something not on your website?
Yes. We regularly get requests for things like adults rucksacks, socks & wellies. If you're buying for a school or group we'll always do some research for you and find something suitable for what you want.
Can you put me on your mailing list for offers, tips and generally wholesome stuff?
Yep. Sign up here
What's The Outdoor Year Calendar?
It's an online calendar for anybody interested in outdoor and healthy activity.
It's a bit of inspiration and information for outdoor play & outdoor learning professionals. Importantly, most of the content comes from people at the front line of outdoor learning (you can find out how to contribute to the calendar here). It can be used as a tool to plan outdoor activities around events and national / international celebrations. You can find it here.
