Our boutique in downtown Asheville specializes in lightweight and ultralight gear, with a focus on cottage industry and local builders.  Many of our are women-owned, sustainable, and made in the USA.  Our guides who have collectively hiked more than 75,000 miles (that's three times around the earth!) help us choose the best gear on the market.  

We also feature a curated selection of gifts from local artisans, inspired by their own time in nature.
