What’s not to love about the goat? Backcountry.com is typically my go-to for pretty much all gear, whether for general travel, climbing, surfing, or more. It’s surprising if they don’t have something you need, they run great deals, they’re customer service is fantastic, and – wait – yes you guessed it – you can shop Backcountry via Rapid Rewards Shopping and rack up some serious points on things you need or want anyway!
Long one of my favorite outdoor retailers, EMS stocks the best outdoor gear and apparel there is. Of course, EMS, REI, and Backcounty do carry a lot of the same stuff, but where EMS stands out to me is with THEIR brand of gear and apparel. Eastern Mountain Sports brand jackets, tents, packs, you name it, it’s high quality stuff!
I’ve always been a big fan of REI. I think as a company, they do it right. Quality gear and quality values. If your not a member of the CoOp yet, join up! I actually have the REI MasterCard too, which really adds up onto your REI dividend at the start of every year. Free gear? Yes please!
