RANGER - THE TRADING POST
Welcome to the Trading Post!
We've been here in Surbiton going on 20 years now selling quality outdoor clothing and expedition equipment at sensible prices. Our selection of military surplus is all hand sorted, top grade. It is simply superb value for money.
The Trading Post is open 7 days a week. We are only 100 metres or so from Surbiton Station, 20 minutes out of Waterloo. Just turn right out of the station and we are the last shop on the right.
Come and visit us. The Trading Post is bursting at the seams with great kit. Our staff is knowledgeable and friendly. You will be most welcome.
Ranger has been established now for 20 years. We love the outdoors and travel, and our philosophy has always been that you should not have to pay an arm and a leg for reliable kit to get you out into the wilds. To that end we concentrate on supplying only kit that is good value and is proven to do the job. This makes our work more difficult as we have to "cherry pick" items from many different suppliers, but it means that you get the best deal.
The Trading Post is our one retail outlet in Surbiton, Surrey. Chockfull of quality kit, it is an experience in itself. Come along and visit us. We're open 7 days a week.
My main outdoor interests are walking and photography. I always go for walks that have some kind of focus and interest to them. If I can learn something about the history of an area, or encounter some of its wildlife, on a walk, then I am happy. My ongoing project is to visit every cathedral in England – this gets me to different regions I wouldn't necessarily see. I'm still planning to walk Hadrian's Wall. Every year something comes up to scupper my plans, but it will be done!
I fell in love with travelling about 20 years ago and have travelled extensively throughout South East Asia, Australia, New Zealand and the States. I believe in travelling light (I never take more than a 45 litre pack) and in respecting the nature of the places and the people you visit. Recently I have made rewarding return journeys to Malaysia, Vietnam and Nepal.
