We’ve got Christmas wrapped up

There's no stopping Christmas, but you can put an end to gift-buying dilemmas with a visit to the BMC online shop, which we've packed with great gift-bundles that cater to everybody.

Make your climbing partner look super cool with the Classic Climbing Essentials Bundle, which includes a pair of belay glasses and a chalk bag, and will save you £36. Or if that's not your bag, grab the Walking Essentials Bundle, which includes a compass and map case with a £22 saving!

Don't leave it too late
To guarantee delivery for Christmas, order by Friday 16 December.

Santa says, "Support the BMC. I only work one day a year, but the BMC works all year round for climbers, hill walkers and mountaineers."
