Outdoor Clothing & Equipment

The BlackIslander Co was born in 1992 out of the need to provide the best gaiter available for the outdoors. This was  achieved in the Blackislander de Lux gaiter (CONSIDERED BY MANY TO BE THE BEST GENTS/LADIES GAITER IN TH UK)and since 2007 we introduced our new range of Scratchless Low Maintanance Boots. We are now pleased to announce our New Cromarty Waterproof suit( Jacket and Overtrouser)based on the same matieral as our renouned Blackislader Delux Gaiter .We continued to service the oudoor/ fieldsport market with what we believe to be the best outdoor equipment that is available - specialising in sourcing products from North European / European suppliers.PLEASE FEEL FREE TO PHONE FOR ANY ADVICE AND ALSO ORDER OVER THE PHONE SHOULD YOU FEEL MORE COMFORTABLE DOING SO.

Testimonials

Black Islander's Scratchless 10½ high boot is without doubt the best hill boot I have tried in the field. The low maintenance aspect of these boots is what attracted me in the first instance. Indeed a simple hose down at the end of the day is all that is required to keep them in tip top order. But comfort of course is a paramount concern for those spending long hours on the hill and the Black islander boots do not disappoint. They truly are as comfortable as slippers, and surprisingly light for a big boot yet still very robust. These boots are fully waterproof, warm, dry, breathable, extremely comfortable and tough enough for the nation’s hillkeepers – they certainly get my vote and are my personal choice of boot. All backed up by some good old-fashioned Black Islander customer service that is second to no other.
