Gear for your next hiking trip


Scarpa Kailash Trek GTX

At the crossroads of light backpacking boots and great day hike boots, you find the Kailash boot, Scarpa's best-selling boot. With Gore-Tex and Vibram tech, it's got all the duds.


Osprey Kyte 36

Day hike or overnight adventure, the women’s-specific Osprey Kyte 36 is at home anywhere on the planet.


Nikwax Footwear


Hiking boots last longer and perform better when they are clean. You can go fact check that if you feel the need. But seriously... dirt and water, over time, breakdown the glues and fabrics in your boots. Clean them regularly and re-waterproof them when needed!


Nikwax Tech Wash 

Dirt, crud, and campfire smoke attract water to your rain jacket, causing it to no longer be waterproof. Clean your rain jacket with Tech Wash to get rid of nasty crud. 


Black Diamond Distance plus FLZ Trekking Poles

Built for the long haul, these trekking poles will help you cover ground. Super light, and quick to deploy, these poles will be your go-to when the going gets rough.


Nikwax BaseWash

Nikwax makes a cleaner and deodorizer for baselayers? Yes, yes we do. BaseWash is designed to clean & deodorize, increasing breathability and wicking functionality in all your next-to-skin synthetic fabrics. No more stinky baselayers!


FArm to Feet Max Patch

These merino wool socks were made for hiking! Look stylin' while you're out hammering the trails.


Outdoor Research Helium II JAcket

Ultra rain protection in a tiny package. Throw it in your pack until you need it. At 6.4 ounces you'll barely notice it's there.


MSR TRailshot 

This pocket sized water filter gives you clean water all day, without the weight. Easy to use one-handed, you can sip from streams, or refill your water bottles with style.
