We are committed to personalized retail. Come in our store and try on, get fitted, compare and contrast, touch and feel our product and interact with staff who know and go outdoors.
Our nine convenient shops are filled with gear and clothing for life outside; work and play.
We can help you get where you are going, outfit you for comfort, safety, and help you engage in sport outdoors.
We expect the product we sell you to satisfy. We guarantee that it will.
As a LOCAL OUTFITTER, we know how important it is to demo and test the gear. You might as well break a sweat before you purchase, like cutting a cord of wood before you purchase the chainsaw.
Great Outdoor Provision Co. is committed to providing opportunities to paddle, cast, tread, feel and taste the products we sell. We offer camping rental programs in our stores along with instructional clinics & classes in the field and on the water. See our event calendar for more info.
We give back to outdoor cornerstones that have marked our lives. For example, we chose local land trusts because they acquire land for protection thus preserving open space for adventure. Scout Troops provide the leadership and skills that enable young people to safely enjoy the wilderness. Habitat For Humanity works to provide affordable housing for families in need. We recognize that you make these contributions possible by shopping our stores so we thank you.

When we opened for business in the early 70’s, we soon discovered that the clothing we regarded as essential gear for hiking, camping, climbing and so forth was regarded by most of our customers as “sportswear” or even “fashion.” A down jacket that could protect us in a harsh mountain environment was also a fashion piece. Over time, we expanded our sportswear offering to cover clothing that was not “gear” in the sense that a down jacket is gear, but that still represented the kinds of clothes we would grab when going outside.
Our standards for sportswear are very different from those of department stores or men’s and women’s ready to wear shops. Sportswear at Great Outdoor Provision Co. is selected with an eye toward construction integrity, comfortable fit, colors that have the fashion legs to last as long as the garment, and have that hard to describe “something” that will make our clothing your favorites.
Of course we still have clothing representing the latest technology that enables us to explore the ends of the earth safely and in comfort. We have and will always have, clothing for harsh weather; cold, wet, windy, hot, sunny, buggy and whatever else nature can throw your way. We guarantee its function, and are proud of how it fits, looks and wears.
All clothing at Great Outdoor Provision Co. is designed for the way you truly live. What you do with your leisure time and outdoor rambles is, of course, your business; what you wear, is ours.
