  • Alex V.

    I've camped and hiked across many parts of the Western United States, Hawaii and Canada. I have been actively training to do the PCT in the next couple of years. I've worked in the outdoor industry for almost two decades. I understand a lot of products, materials and tech that goes into gear which can sometimes save your life or at least make a journey a lot more enjoyable!

    Alex is Awesome!
    Alex really took into account the activity and location to suggest exactly what I was looking for. I knew things that I needed, but wasn't really sure what to pick. Alex gave me several gear recommendations to choose from and info on each piece so I could decide what was best for me. I felt silly asking for a sun hat but Alex found a great one for me! Really anything you might be looking for just ask Alex.

    Such patience!!
    Alex was extremely helpful and accommodating. I was very distracted with a baby and making dinner and got confused for a portion of our convo, and he stayed patient with me and gave me options along with a very quick response time.
