beyond my expectations.
I wasn't sure what the experience was going to be. It was a game changer. I had already done some research on my own... not that I count have proceeded, I wanted to be sure I was picking the right product and getting the best deal. Amy was super responsive. Soooo knowledgable. It felt like she was sitting right beside me as a personal shopper. She was patient with my decisions and just friendly... like an ol pal!

Scott Just Gets Me
The nice thing about working with Scott was how quickly he saw my needs and adjusted accordingly. Sometimes when you work with experts and salespeople, they try to convince you to buy THEIR favorites or what would work best for them. Instead, Scott focused on synthesizing the criteria I’d given him into several products that would best suit my needs. This seems like the true meaning of “curated” to me! Scott is friendly but not pushy, he gives you the space and time to make your decision without leaving you hanging.

First time gear buyer
Reece was so quick to help it was amazing. I’ve been stumbling around for weeks trying to figure out what in the world I wanted to get and he had some pretty awesome choices for me in literally the time it took me to explain what I wanted to do. He stayed right with my budget. So if you’re doubting, for sure choose him. Because hands down he’s the friendliest and to the point person I’ve met. It’s a good feeling knowing you have someone with ACTUAL trail experience helping you.

Expert: Wesley Bryden
Helpful recommendations and very personable!!
I had spent about two hours researching shoes and jackets for winter hiking. While I've always had an interest, my gear was not always great. I finally had means to purchase something and Wesley did a fantastic job narrowing down options for me. The recommendations were so helpful. When I couldn't decide between two jackets, he even talked through the features with me, explaining in detail what it meant. I appreciate the thoughtfulness and patience he showed. I look forward to trying everything on as well. I certainly intend to ask for his recommendations again.

Expert: Gregg Mason
Responsive and knowledgeable
I enjoyed working with Gregg very much. He asked great questions about my needs and what I was looking for and he answered all of my questions. He didn’t push to make a sale at all. I just felt like I was talking to a really interesting and knowledgeable guy about camping and gear. His laid back and informed interaction with me helped me to feel confident that he wanted me to be satisfied with whatever I bought, even if I needed some extra time to think about it.

Aaron is the real mvp
Aaron is the best guy to go to. (As a student) He knows what it's like to be on a budget and how to get the best equipment for your specific needs at the best price. Hes super honest and real about what you need, dont need, what to splurge on and what to save on. He answered every question I had and never made me feel silly for asking certain questions or for asking the same questions. If you're looking for gear, give aaron a call because he really is the best.

Kara Is the best!
Kara helped me pick some items to upgrade my sleep system. She requested details that i didn’t even think to ask myself, one was whether i was a side sleeper. She was really down to earth and wanted to know my needs and found great options which made it hard to pick between them. With her knowledge of products, I was able to make the best decision. Thanks again Kara! I’ll be sleeping like a baby in Yosemite in no time!!

If all online companies did this
Nat made the shopping experience easy and was able to add value to doing business with curated. He took time to answer all of my questions and his directions were easy to follow. He made me feel my business was wanted and valued. His picks were spot on and exactly what I asked for. I would highly recommend him to anyone wanting to do business with this company.

Straight to the point
She was very thoughtful in what was my original budget for backpacking gave me multiple price ranges that fit my budget and meet my needs as well as that she even gave me insight on what I should look for in certain items and what would best fit me for the type of hiking I was planning on doing what I really liked the most is that we together weighed out the the pros and cons of each item that way I can make the best decision in buying. Great job I would highly recommend her to one of my friends to build their custom packs for backpacking.
