GEAR UP FOR YOUR NEXT ADVENTURE

George Washington Sears, aka Nessmuk, wrote in the 1800s of the outdoors that, "We do not go to the green woods and crystal waters to rough it. We go to smooth it." That’s as true now as ever. The outdoors are for refreshing the soul and lifting the spirit.

Try convincing yourself of that – or better yet, your spouse, children or friends – when their feet are cold, their line is tangled, their sleeping bag is soggy, or their paddle is broken. Having the right gear can make all the difference.

In the Everybody Adventures shop you’ll find a wide range of products that will outfit you and your crew for every kind of adventure. VISIT THE SHOP.
