Becoming an Adventure Queens-ACAI Outdoorswear Ambassador
Over the next year (2023) I am thrilled to be an AQ-ACAI Outdoorswear Ambassador along with other Adventure Queens volunteers!
I was kindly sent ACAI's Outdoor Fleece Hoodie and Thermal Outdoor Leggings and I've been having lots of fun trying them out in the outdoors! They are keeping me super warm and toasty in the cold weather.
Part of ACAI's mission is to get more women outdoors to experience all of the physical and mental wellbeing benefits. Which is exactly what the Adventure Queens is all about, and my ethos too so I'm excited to share reviews of the clothing and adventures from me and the other ambassadors!
Since attending the Adventure Queens 5th Birthday Camp Out, I have volunteered to help out with with Adventure Queens Instagram page, and have since joined the AQ volunteers group.
The Adventure Queens has recently become a Community Partner of ACAI Outdoorswear, the second community partnership. Adventure Queens are a non-profit women's adventure community. Their main aim is to “bring down barriers that prevent women from going on outdoor adventures and help them realise their full potential”.
Over the next year ACAI will be supporting Adventure Queens in a range of areas and they were looking for members of the volunteer community to become ACAI-AQ Ambassadors! I put myself forward for this opportunity and joined 11 other Ambassadors in our little team for this year.
The role of the Ambassadors is to generate content that can be used to promote the AQ-ACAI Partnership. Fully kitted out by ACAI, we will share photos of ourselves trying out the kit in various outdoors adventures.
Passion for getting women outdoors
As part of ACAI's mission to inspire more women to get out and experience all of the benefits of outdoors, they have created the Outdoorsing Fund, to support women's community groups across the UK.
The Outdoorsing Club is part of ACAI's mission to get more women outdoors to experience all of the physical and mental wellbeing benefits. All of the events are free and held by women who love the outdoors as much as they do.
The clothing is designed by women to enhance your outdoor experience. I chose ACAI's Outdoor Fleece Hoodie. Not only is The Outdoor Fleece Hoodie super cosy with its fleece lining, it is also windproof and has a waterproof inner membrane to keep you dry in a light shower!
I tried it out on a dog walk to start with and although it was a very wet day, I was very toasty. The pocket on the front is great for holding phone, keys and dog poo bags!
The perfect piece for rainy Autumn and Winter strolls. Available in Deep Navy in sizes XS-XL.
Made for the outdoors, it is windproof and showerproof with a hood and zipped pocket.
The Bonded Borg fabric creates a timeless, warm fleece hoodie.
I also chose Thermal Outdoor Leggings. They boast lots of really great features, such as a seam free inner leg to avoid chafing, non-slip waistband to ensure comfort, made with insulating thermal yarn, extremely quick drying in minutes, moisture wicking material, and machine washable.
When I first tried them on they required a bit of wiggling to get them up but once on they are super comfy. I think it will make adventure wees a bit tricky until they have loosened a little though!
The zipped pocket is perfect for holding my phone.
