Answer a few quick questions to get started with Sam
Yosemite backpacking
  • 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.

    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!
