Patrick hosted a snowshoe and winter hiking basics workshop for my local hiking group that was fantastic! We are mainly beginners and appreciated all of the time Patrick took showing us proper/safe gear and answering our many questions. His selection is impressive and, what isn’t there, he can obtain quickly. No high pressure selling either. Patrick recommended we rent gear to find out exactly what works before buying – then he applies the rental cost to the purchase price. He’s just made a whole bunch of people fans for life of him and his shop!

This is a great place. Owner is super helpful and knowledgeable. There is a mix of used gear here and some interesting, inexpensive new items such as easy to use bike lights and light weight multipurpose balaclava/head scarf etc.

My first stop before any trip. Survival of the Gear is hands down one of my favorite places to acquire the supplies for any trip or adventure. Knowledgable and friendly staff that will point you in the right direction.

Awesome place and awesome people! Not only a place to get something brand new but a place to get something slightly used at a great price! Worth the drive for sure, I’ll be returning frequently!

SOG is a great local shop to get new and used outdoor gear. I’ve attended several of the workshops and have learned something and everyone. Pat and Cliff worked with me to make sure I could get a reasonably priced rear wheel for my bike trainer! I will be shopping there again!

Meg M.

Love love love the barely-used Saris bike rack I got at SOG! I’ve gotten my money’s worth several times over and it’s still like new!

It’s so cliche to say “nice, knowledgeable staff,yada yada” but its the truth. I attended a class on hammock camping, and these guys knew what was up, and had me excited and set up to do it on my own not long after. Highly recommend.

I liked the “Hammock Camping” 101 workshop. Soon i will buying one of SoG’s hammocks with the bug net. The SoG outdoors workshops are AWESOME!!!
