REI is an incredible store for all things adventure. Everything from mountain biking and rock climbing to camping and driving across two continents, REI is a one-stop-shop for pretty much every piece of your gear. We used REI for much of our camping gear and clothing.
Wild Earth Outfitters is located in Kent, Ohio and has been a great local resource for us get some of our essential pieces of gear. The staff is friendly and very knowledgeable about the products. We primarily relied upon With Earth to get items such as our cooking equipment, water bottles, rope, and much more.
Patagonia's mission is to make the highest quality gear in a manner that protects the environment. Our introduction to the company came through the documentary 180 Degrees South where the impressive pedigree of the company left us inspired. Not only for an adventure, but to also support the company that makes adventure possible. We are using Patagonia gear for much of our clothing and luggage.
