Pretty Gritty is a gear review and advice site for the rapidly growing community of active women who are into adventure, mountains and the outdoors.
We celebrate different body types, respect individual preferences and cater for all experience levels. We also believe that adventure should be shared so we recycle surplus review kit back into the community through a network of carefully chosen charities.
If you’re in the market for some new trail running, rock climbing, hiking, mountain biking or backcountry skiing kit, we will do the research.
You should be out there.
