The Story Behind

Wylies Outdoor World

The story behind Wylies Outdoor World so far, Meet Drew Wylie and the rest of the Wylies Outdoor World Team, Info on our services and the Bushcraft, Camping, Hiking, Survival, and Outdoors equipment we test, review and sell!

"We have all the gear you will ever need to keep you warm, dry and prepared to face the elements or challenges ahead.

We do not just sell products, we use them every week ourselves regardless of the weather.

If we do recommend something to you...You can rest assured it has stood the test of time and earned a place in our packs!"

Wylies Outdoor World's founder and managing director, Drew Wylie has always had a keen interest in the general outdoors from childhood. He can often be found in one of the many woodland areas in and around Fife with our mascot "Archie" the black Labrador practising bushcraft and other outdoor related skills.

Drew also uses the products that can be found in our website every week, regardless of the weather. Unlike many companies, we have the first hand experience with the products we sell over long periods. We will not try to sell you the new fancy gear with the highest price tag (unless that is what you want) but listen to you and recommend products that are best suited to your specific needs.

We also regularly organise camping trips and other outdoor activities for our community and local customers. If you would like to get involved in any of these activities please drop us an email

Whether you are practicing Bushcraft, Camping, Hiking or even Outdoor Adventure or Survival we have all the gear you will ever need to keep you warm, dry and prepared to face the elements or challenges ahead. We do not just sell products we use them every week ourselves regardless of the weather. If we recommend something to you, it has stood the test of time and has earned a place in our packs!

Drew Wylie has designed, developed and constantly maintains personally. It has been a mammoth task getting to this point, but also a labour of love for Drew.

Between, testing all the gear, maintaining the website and always being your sole point of contact not just for advice but for troubleshooting and problem solving Drew has chosen not to have a physical store so we can concentrate on offering you what we believe is more important in today's age and do it to a far higher standard!

From the whole team of us at Wylies Outdoor World - Thank you and enjoy your outdoor adventures!
