Shopping for that special someone in your life? You cannot go wrong with our selection of Kuhl apparel Born In The Mountains. Let our friendly staff help you find the perfect gift. We have also stocked up on our ever popular tee, “What Doesn’t Kill You Makes You Stronger… except Bears” adding this customer favorite in long sleeve just in time for Christmas.

It is getting cold out there and we have a great selection of outerwear and cold weather accessories from Marmot, Kuhl, Smartwool and Fitts. We can also keep you warm and comfortable by the campfire with Marmot sleeping bags and Eno hammocks and chairs… all while you sip from your new Green River Eddy’s logo growler filled with your favorite brew! Who wouldn’t love new outdoor gear for Christmas?
