|Who are we?|
Outdoor enthusiasts established Hilltrek almost 25 years ago and their tradition continues with our experience in outdoor sports influencing our own clothing designs and the selection of products we stock and sell on-line.
We are a small business who recognises that outstanding service sets us apart from the big manufacturers and large chain retail outlets.
We operate from the village of Aboyne in beautiful Royal Deeside in the North East of Scotland amidst wonderful walking, mountain biking and trail running country and within a short distance of skiing and mountaineering in the Cairngorms.
In addition to manufacturing our own clothing, we are a Premier Páramo® retailer and stock a comprehensive range of outdoor clothing and equipment provided by other leading manufacturers.
Visiting us is a pleasure with easy parking and the many outdoor and indoor attractions of Royal Deeside within easy reach. Why not combine a visit with climb of our local Corbett, Morven, local Munros Mount Keen and Lochnagar or a walk round Loch Muick?
|What is Hilltrek Clothing?|
Our own manufactured products are worn by outdoor enthusiasts including country walkers, mountaineers, dedicated Munro baggers, skiers, curlers, canoeists, bird watchers, hunters, gliding enthusiasts and all weather dog walkers!
Our outdoor clothing range is manufactured using only the best quality fabrics and materials from the UK, USA and continental Europe. We make fleeces, windproof & waterproof clothing using fabrics such as Ventile®, Nikwax Analogy®, Malden Mills fleece and Karisma fleece for corporate customers, clubs and outdoor enthusiasts.
Our garments have been thoroughly tested by ourselves and local outdoor enthusiasts and adapted to meet the demanding conditions dictated by the Scottish weather.
We also recognise that children require the same demanding performance from outdoor clothing and therefore our range of childrens clothing reflects the same high quality and specification as adult garments.
At Hilltrek we also recognise that not everyone is a standard fit or wants a standard product thus we offer a 'Made to Measure' service to meet your specific requirements. This can be ordered on line by measuring your dimensions to our careful specifications.
Service sets us apart and in addition to bespoke outdoor clothing manufacture we offer repair and alteration of outdoor clothing.
Clothing repairs: We provide a service for repairs of performance outdoor clothing including Páramo® Nikwax Analogy, Ventile, Sympatex and other fabrics.
If your clothing needs repairing, please call our customer service department during our normal business hours 9am - 5pm Monday to Saturday and 11am to 5pm Sunday.
Any item returned for repair must be washed first. Our Health and Safety policy required all returned garments be in a clean and dry condition before work can commence. If you return an unclean item, we will contact you first. The charge for professional cleaning prior to repairing it is £10 per garment.
After the repair/alteration of a Paramo® Directional waterprrof garment or Hilltrek manufactured garment which uses Nikwax Analogy® fabric, it will be dry cleaned and re-proofed as part of our service.
For corporate and club customers we can supply clothing from our own designs or from leading outdoor brands. We have an in-house logo embroidery service and seam-seal capability to seal laminated or coated waterproof clothing after embroidery. Why add your logo to an expensive waterproof jacket if it is not sealed afterwards!
Our MADE TO MEASURE service is also used by our corporate customers to cater for those out size colleagues and customers. Please contact us on +44 (013398 86062) for a competitive quote.

Some comments are listed below
"I am just letting you know how very impressed I am with the Ventile Windshirt I purchased from you in May. During our wonderful Summer I have worn it in conditions it did not deserve to be worn in! The performance, design and quality of the garment are superb.
I had a ****** windshirt for many years but was always very disappointed with both its design and performance.
Your Windshirt has restored my faith in Ventile. I am hoping my wife will buy me one of your double layer jacket for Christmas!!" B D
''I have just been for a ride with my Gilet and it performed exceptionally well, so I wanted to say how happy I am with it. It was very comfortable on and off the bike. I'm very impressed by the quality of the construction too, I have bought Ventile garments from another manufacturer that honestly were not as well made as this....." M. Lawrence, Oxford
"thank you for the excellent service" Ms F McRae, Fraserburgh
"I am delighted with my ventile vest. It is exactly what I was hoping for. The quality of the workmanship is obvious" Dr C Murray, Glasgow
"you have provided service above and beyond the call of duty" G Gerrie, Monymusk
"Coming up to a year with your ventile jacket and it is excellent. Kept me comfortable at work, travelling and chasing bulls in the hills!" R Evans
" ..you supplied me with a Ventile Windshirt about a month ago, fantastic all of it. I have been teaching in outdoor education for 23 years now and have used most garments on the market including Ventile ones for most of the time. Not only is the quality of your product very high but the quality of service is the best I have experienced from a manufacture. Your concern for my satisfaction was second to none. I remain very impressed" D.K.
