I fully realise you can’t advertise your pants to be snake-proof, but they certainly make it bloody
difficult for fangs to penetrate.

S Slatter

Amazing selection of top outdoor apparel with great service. I would highly recommend.

P Ellery

I currently have three pairs of shorts, no wait, four pairs, and one bag. These are the best clothes ever.

J Clark

Wear my shorts 50+ hours a week as a rock climbing instructor + most weekends for DIY and they are still in fantastic condition 8yrs on!

M Ross

The products just work, and look good doing it. I love it here!

M Wood

Clothes that really last. Can't fault anything I've bought here. Not cheap, but the stuff lasts forever, so in the end way better value than anything else.

T Alton

Fabulous people fixed my 20+ year old bag for a fraction of the cost. Thank you team!

A Tominari

Great robust clothing for hard workers and outdoor types. Highly recommended.

M Hansen

The Cactus Lightweight Supershorts are the best pair of shorts I've ever owned.

gear that wears in, not out

Cactus Outdoor has been making outdoor and workwear gear since 1992. Despite this pedigree, we're still a young company run by people who spend most of their spare time in the outdoors. We have an innate understanding of what works, and more importantly, what doesn't. That understanding is shown in our products: We carefully craft high quality items that include all the features that are important, nothing superfluous and, above all, are more durable than anything in the marketplace.


Worn around the globe

Designed to withstand New Zealand's rugged outdoors, the Arctic's severe cold, and everywhere in between.
