View Full Version : Devold of Norway
Can anyone point me in the direction of UK stockists for Devold's products? On their website they have every country but the UK! Also, a Google search yielded no results. All help much appreciated!
Haven't found a distributor or mail-order supplier (and I've been looking, off and on, since Jonathan Dorn reviewed the windproof Devold Nansen sweater in "Backpacker" about six years ago), but I have occasionally found odd Devold items in places like Falmouth and Truro. Chandlers are good places to look. Current exchange rates might make it worthwhile hunting on some of the discount American sites - I recall seeing a Devold on www.rei-outlet.com last year - if nothing turns up in the UK.
I've found a supplier of the Blaatrĝie - www.manufactum.co.uk - but that one only. Will have to check chandlers as you suggest. :cry:
graham tissot whom stocks mountaineering clothing /outdoors etc ,sells devold as i have a sweater bought from them.these are very warm ,quality sweaters that seem to last as long as swannies.i am not sure if these stores are in england,but there are a few in scotland ,the largest being the outdoor experience in glasgow.there number should be easily obtainable,if you have any bother let me know and i will get it for you mate.
I'd echo Gill - Graham Tiso - they definately used to stock them cos thats where I got mine. I think they will send stuff out to you too though they aren't really mail order.
Aaaarrghh..... logged into the forum for the first time in some 3 weeks (been away to more warm places :o): ), saw that there were some 3300 new posts and then the :***: thing crashed. Now it only says 0 new posts :banghead: :twisted:
Anyone know an easy way to find new posts up to 3 weeks old ? :?:
Anyway, this thread was one of them :roll:
If you ever come to Norway and are more or less in the area where the Devold factory is, then you must go there for a visit. At the factory they sell stuff (at least in summer) with small flaws (and I mean small: I've got a sweather where the flaw was one single darker thread than the other dark threads, and I got it for 60 % less than the ordinary price...) for 20 to 80 % less than the ordinary retail price (30-50 % being about average).
Thanks all... In fact, my truly wonderful girlfriend has come up trumps and got me a Nansen for christmas. She won't let on where from though :roll:
But, yes, wohoo! It's fantastic - every bit as good as I'd hoped.
Gerd, PM on it's way :biggthump
