Last year when we were preparing for a family skiing trip, instead of spending hours online ordering and then returning various items I should have gone straight to this shop just around the corner from my home. Behind its unassuming frontage, Cover is an expertly run specialist in outdoor wear and equipment. With good value brands like Trespass, it’s ideal for kitting out the kids and, if sizes or styles are wrong, things can be exchanged.
What’s more, with so many great walks in and around Barnet, you can get properly equipped here before setting out. I’ve been delighted with my new walking boots I received as a Christmas present replacing a poorly fitting pair I’d bought mail order years ago.
