  • Sam S.

    As a kid, I was a Boy Scout. My family took many camping trips to places like Colorado and New Mexico, and I fell in love with the mountains!

    As a young adult, I pursued my mountain hobbies full force by deciding to live in a van and travel around the American West.

    I've always been a gear head, and I believe it's important to find the perfect tool for the job - whatever it may be.

    Having worked in many outdoor industries, I'm familiar with a wide range of gear options and I'm excited to help you find the perfect gear for your next adventure!

    I've helped 188 people find the right product - I'd love to help you too!

    Quick and personable
    Sam helped me pick a good power station for dispersed camping. It was great to have his suggestions and he offered his personal review on more than one item. Appreciated the quick response time too. Thanks.

    Sam is great to work with!
    Sam started by asking questions about my upcoming trip I am planning. Then we discussed my gear needs and priorities. Once understanding my needs, he shared some ideas on what would work with an explanation of why he liked this item. From there, I was able to ask questions on why he would choose one over another product to help me make my decision. Great process. Great knowledge from Sam and appreciate working with him!
