US Stores

Looking for camping/climbing/hiking gear? Here is a list of online retail stores that sell outdoor gear in the United States to serve as a resource to use when shopping. You can also search for gear using search engines like Google and Yahoo. However, keep in mind that they only list companies that pay them to be listed. Many of the retailers below don't appear in those search results unless you search on their specific company name.

Please send me any additional links and I will add them to the list. (Retailers only - no manufacturers.)

Also, your feedback/experience with specific merchants, both good and bad, would be a valuable addition to this list. Please add any such comments to the Additions/Corrections section.

Re: Addition:

Thanks for the suggestion. However it does not appear that they sell gear via their website. You have to visit their store to make a purchase. This list is only for online merchants.
