Our ambassadors are more than just experts in their fields and passionate about outdoor living; they are field testers for our gear and storytellers. Bramwell’s ambassadors work, live and play in the Outdoors; they take our gear through some very challenging experiences on a daily basis as well as taking our products to some of the harshest and most remote locations on the planet. As their stories develop so we will share them with you!

Harriet Fraser has been writing about journeying and remarkable places since co-authoring the Rough Guide to India back in 1993. She lives near Kendal and is unable to resist the pull of being outdoors or writing about it. Her work takes her near and far, from Cumbrian hay meadows and farmyards to the Himalayas, and there’s always walking involved. Harriet’s work has been published in magazines including Geographical, Adventure Travel, The Telegraph Magazine and Earthlines. She often works in collaboration with visual artists and has exhibited prose and poetry alongside visual artwork across the UK. Studying for an MPhil at the University of Glasgow’s Centre for Environment, Culture and Communication helps her keep stretching her grey matter.
Many of Harriet’s projects are done in collaboration with her husband, Rob Fraser – together they are somewhere-nowhereView website
