A lot of our customers haven't had the opportunity to do a lot of car-camping or backpacking, and need some advice to get started. So don't hesitate to contact us if you are in that situation. There is no such thing as a dumb question, and we actually enjoy helping folks if its been awhile since their last outdoor adventure.  It's a lot better to learn as much as you can before your trip than the "hard way" after you're out there.

We have all kinds of advice pages, videos and user guides about the outdoors and the gear we carry - a good place to start is by clicking on the "Learn" tab up above and read to your heart's content. For some third-party user reviews of gear we rent and sell, visit our backpacking and camping user gear review page. Or if you want a shortcut, just give us a call to discuss your plans and we'll make some recommendations.

We're here to help!
